Are we not allowed to show emotion anymore? If you do you will be burned at the stake. Or will be seriously judged and no one will want to befriend you. I'm not sure which is worse. This is a bit of an exaggeration. But seriously, what happened to emotion? Now-a-days it seems to be a rare animal species that never makes an appearance. Is anyone else exhausted of hearing "OMG, thats hilarious" without the person even cracking a smile? When did showing emotion become a bad thing? Am I the only one that wants to have real conversations?To have that pain in your stomach from nonstop laughing. Does anyone else miss that? It seems the more technological this world becomes the more I yearn for real people with real emotions.
As a woman in the modern day world thoughts and tendencies have been passed down to me. Such as how to act "lady-like" and the thought that men have more power than me. But why has the female society continued this thought of men being more powerful, especially when it's degrading to us? This is where the title comes into play, why are we making our own misery? When a man is degrading to us why do we put up with it? Why do we except it? Now I know not all woman do, but the majority of us let it fester inside our bodies. Why don't we stand up and say "how dare you"? Because it's scary as hell. If we are going to go down that path, why is it scary? Why aren't woman scary? Well I can tell you one reason. When we are scary to men they belittle the feeling they have by playing it off as a woman being "emotional". Uh huh! How many times have you heard that one? If we are going to speak so matter a factly about woman then yes,we are emotional, as is every human being. So looping back to the original question why do we let this happen? If you don't confront an issue it will perpetuate. So by us continuing to think men are more powerful than us, we are perpetuating it!
Can you ever feel yourself going numb? Nothing is good or bad, it just exists. You just exist. There are no feelings towards something or someone. There are no feelings at all. How do you stop it? This mass destruction of your self happiness? Or do you? The reason for going numb in the first place is your body protecting yourself. So do you really want to become vulnerable to the whatever it is that your are protecting yourself from? Or would you rather feel nothingness? If you do decide to feel nothingness and become numb, will there be a time that you won't be able to deal with anything and then all you are is numb?
Would you love clear beautiful skin? A smaller waistline? How about a bigger paycheck? This is not some sort of commercial add but what I am about to tell you is you can give yourself all those things. With your brain. Plain and simple. The way you think about yourself and your life determines how you are and what your life is going to be. If you believe you can have clear beautiful skin then you can. Now this is where things get tricky, you can have clear skin as long as you feed your body like the beautiful clean eating machine it is. If you feed yourself a bunch of crap your going to feel like crap. I could go on and on about this, but the main topic today is your own thoughts on yourself. Along with this make sure you thank the Universe, God, Brahman, Allah, or what or whomever you believe in for everything you do have and stop focusing on what you don't. Could it be that those wishes you have could become a reality as long as you respect yourself and your thoughts? Now that may sound weird, but it's basically to acknowledge how you are feeling and treat your body as your friend not an enemy. If you can just simply look in the mirror everyday and say to yourself that you are beautiful; or start your day with a clean healthy breakfast to get your body off and running the right way. Then you are already making progress. Just simple little tasks can make your wildest dreams come true. Who knew you were your own fairly godmother?
How can one word or phrase loop around in our head and constantly break us down? Is it our subconscious that knows its true and that's why it stays on loop? Or is it really just a word or phrase and we let it break us down?
If your in a situation where you aren't comfortable or don't like whats going on and you choose to think about it in a different way just to get through that week are you cheating yourself? Just because you don't think about it in the way everyone else does is that wrong? Once that week is over and you have to go back to that situation, what do you do? How do you cope? Your light at the end of the tunnel is now gone. Lets just hope you have a flashlight.
Take pride in how far you have come and have faith in how far you can go
