Journey Of Trust
My feelings are too loud for words and too shyly strong for the world.
It is beautiful to express love and even more beautiful to feel it. Don’t allow your mind to tell your heart what to do. The mind gives up easily. If you spend your life sparing people’s feelings and feeding their vanity, you get so you can’t distinguish what should be respected in them. To hide feelings when you are near crying is the not the secret of dignity but the polar opposite. Never apologize for showing your feelings. When you do, you are apologizing for the truth. Sensitive people usually love deeply and hate even deeper. They don’t know any other way to live than by extremes because their emotional thermostat is broken. A feeling is no longer the same when it comes the second time. It dies through the awareness of its return. We become tired and weary of our feelings when they come too often and last too long. Our feelings are our most genuine paths to knowledge.
Is it really possible to tell someone else what one feels? We try so hard to hide everything we’re really feeling from those who probably need to know our true feelings the most. People try to bottle up their emotions, as if it’s somehow wrong to have natural reactions to life. Everyone is afraid of something. We fear things because we value them. We fear losing people because we love them. We fear dying because we value being alive. Don’t wish you didn’t fear anything. All that would mean is that you didn’t feel anything. That was one of the saddest things about people their most important thoughts and feelings often went unspoken and barely understood. Smiles and tears are so alike with me, they are neither of them confined to any particular feelings: I often cry when I am happy, and smile when I am sad.
Because I trust in the ever changing climate of the heart. I think it is necessary to have many experiences for the sake of feeling something; for the sake of being challenged, and for the sake of being expressive, to offer something to someone else, to learn what we are capable of. There’s nothing more inspiring than the complexity and beauty of the human heart. You learned to run from what you feel, and that’s why you have nightmares. To deny is to invite madness. To accept is to control. Feelings do not grow old along with the body. Feelings form part of a world I don’t know, but it’s a world where there’s no time, no space, no frontiers. What man ever openly apologizes for slander? It is not so much a feeling of slander as it is that of a massive lie, a misdeed not only to the slandered but also to those manipulated in the process.
Over the years, I have come to realize that the greatest trap in our life is not success, popularity, or power, but self-rejection. Success, popularity, and power can indeed present a great temptation, but their seductive quality often comes from the way they are part of the much larger temptation to self-rejection. When we have come to believe in the voices that call us worthless and unlovable, then success, popularity, and power are easily perceived as attractive solutions. The real trap, however, is self-rejection. We experience ourselves our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us.
The belief that unhappiness is selfless and happiness is selfish is misguided. It’s more selfless to act happy. It takes energy, generosity, and discipline to be unfailingly lighthearted, yet everyone takes the happy person for granted. No one is careful of his feelings or tries to keep his spirits high. He seems self-sufficient; he becomes a cushion for others. And because happiness seems unforced, that person usually gets no credit. Traumatized people chronically feel unsafe inside their bodies: The past is alive in the form of gnawing interior discomfort. Their bodies are constantly bombarded by visceral warning signs, and, in an attempt to control these processes, they often become expert at ignoring their gut feelings and in numbing awareness of what is played out inside. They learn to hide from their selves.
Emotions come and go and can’t be controlled so there’s no reason to worry about them. That in the end, people should be judged by their actions since in the end it was actions that defined everyone. If you’re searching for a quote that puts your feelings into words you won’t find it. You can learn every language and read every word ever written but you’ll never find what’s in your heart. Inside of all of us there is the need and the desire to be heard, to have our innermost thoughts, feelings and desires expressed for others to hear, to see and to understand. We all want to matter to someone, to leave a mark. Ask yourself, does this person make me feel good about myself? Do I feel safe, strong and free with this person? Those are the questions you need to ask.You have to be strong to truly be open. And empty words are evil
Feelings are never stupid, they just make us feel stupid sometimes.
