Bottled Emotions

Bottling emotions  is during is a dangerous thing. Add a little stress, a little paranoia, and it’s like trying to light a match in a truck full of gasoline. The smallest spark and the wall you built to dam up your emotions goes up in flames, consuming you in a river of raw emotion, destroying you and those around you. When that happens, two things can happen. You burst and barreling through life momentarily like tornado, tearing those around you down too. Or you self-contain it and tear yourself to pieces from the inside out. Either way, you feel terrible, vow it not to happen again, and start building a new wall. Everyone needs to vent sometimes, and it doesn’t change your situation, but in a way, crying about it does make you feel better. You let it out and it will not eat a hole through you. When someone looks like they need to talk, let them, listen to them. Let them vent their hearts out to you. You can’t change anything and they don’t expect you to. But be there for someone, show some empathy. Help out someone, you never know when you’ll need them to vent to.

About lbannister117

I’m the outdoorsy kind of girl, one of those rugged beasts. Try hard, play hard, take no prisoners kind of people. I have the intelligence, and the feminism, but yet I'm still the hard-core ‘one of the guys’ kind of girl. I enjoy the company and views of others, and love having in depth conversations about everything under the sun, whether it be politics, the weather, an event in history, the news, or simply a good story.
