Some people are so insanely scared of their emotions… so totally and completely disconnected from that process that they will make you think something is wrong with you when you express emotion. DON’T LET THEM DO THAT.

They’ll say shit like: “It’s not anything to cry about.”

Maybe not to you but if you could feel the crushing pain inside my chest threatening to pull me to the ground, you would have fallen a long time ago. It is real and it is intense and it is happening regardless of your acceptance. I BRING THE FEELS.

It’s like I’m feeling things out and suddenly in comes the fear a person projects on to me when they choose to blame me for their discomfort by saying MY tears are not justified.

“False, alarm feelings.. you can pack it up now. That was just a fire drill.”

I am fucking sick of being told it’s not okay. Telling someone there is no reason to cry as tears pour down their face is the same as saying they are overreacting.

How can people say they love you but deny that your experience is even valid? That is exactly what a person does when they tell you that you have no reason to feel the way you do, that you are over reacting or that there is nothing to cry about.

That doesn’t feel like love.. because it’s not. Not at all.

That’s fear.¬†Fuck fear.

    • Right back at you. You mentioned in one of yours how you just knew to hold eye contact to prevent an altercation. I’ve had a similar experience. I will write about it soon. When I would reflect on it I would often wonder how I knew to do that. No logical explanation for the inner know. It just is.
