Have you ever been in the situation where something or someone annoys you and deeply irritates you and you just brush it off? “No it’s okay, it does’t matter”- heard that before?
I’m here to tell you that it does matter. I learnt the hard way that nothing good comes from bottling up your emotions and trust me I speak from experience. I’m studying my second year of my BA degree in a country away from home specialising in a industry (fashion) which doesn’t breed the nicest of people and I am surrounded daily by people who stress me out. So how do I handle it? I have a lot of friends and I built myself a safety net of my three best friends who I now live with and who I consider my family. This December was when things changed. How you ask?
Well, this December was when I finally let out everything I had locked up and repressed. My seething rage took everyone by surprise as I wasn’t able to control it and due to the sheer intensity of what I was feeling I exploded. I accidentally took it out on one of my friends who had no fault in the matter. Naturally, being a person who usually doesn’t get angry, getting shouted at by me tends to have a major impact on people.
So this is my message to you-
When you are in a particular situation and you feel a certain way just do yourself a favour and express what you are feeling. Don’t ever let what you’re feeling control you and such that you’re blinded by rage and you start to get violent. Understand that there is a huge difference between showing your emotions and acting upon your emotions. When we act upon our emotions it’s considered an impulsive action as we all don’t look at every situation while being completely rational and therefore we forget the consequences of our impulsive behaviour. Being impulsive once in a while is good for you (i.e: taking a sudden trip or an unplanned day at the spa) but be careful of certain situations in which you become impulsive as it could have negative results.
So feel what you are feeling and let people know how you feel- if they don’t listen then they weren’t worth all your time and effort but when you do find the people who do listen to you… talking about it with them or expressing what you feel will prevent you from imploding or exploding on yourself and others around you and believe me your heart actually feels a little bit lighter!
This concludes my fourth blog post and I hope you liked it and I apologise for the delay!! Feel free to write any comments about the post or your experiences- I look forward to reading them!
Till a later date with lots of love
