It's okay to feel...

By Nektaria


Smile. Don't be gloomy. Don't cry. Don't overreact. Life's not as hard for you as you think. Others have it worse than you. 

We've all heard that from time to time, right? We all have gone through some rough patches where we felt that life is unfair to us, or that we were overflowing with feelings that we couldn't handle. Work, daily life, relationships of all kinds sometimes cause us grief that we cannot keep inside. The hardest thing to do is to pretend that everything is alright because you don't want to worry the people around you or because you feel like nobody gets you. 
Well, I'm there to tell you that it's okay not to be happy all the time. It's okay to break down and cry. It's absolutely okay to feel like yelling because work is taking the best of you, because you give your everything and your efforts are not being recognized. It's okay to show your feelings to the people that are around you, even if they are negative ones. It's better to be honest with them about what makes you sad, than keep everything inside pretending that all in life is perfect.
Nothing in life is perfect. Life is a roller coaster ride, it has its ups and downs and it's simply horrible to pretend that the downfall doesn't happen and it doesn't scare you, to please others. Some people put their hands in the air and go with the flow but not all can be so cool about falling. You can be scared. You can scream that you are scared, who cares about what people think? Yes, others do have it worse than you but that doesn't mean that your friends-family-lovers shouldn't take your feelings  and your worries into consideration, your sadness and your anger. Don't smile if you don't feel like it. A smile should always come from the heart. Be gloomy, sometimes it helps, just as silence does. So if you feel like remaining silent then do it. Cry, overreact because then you will let it all out and you will heal faster. Trust me, once you let it all out you will see clearly what's important and what's not. Life is strange, hard and unpredictable. It's full of emotions that we shouldn't keep bottled up because then the cork will pop up and the explosion will be horrible. Let it all out. Because your are human... Act like it. And if people don't like it, then I guess it's time to see who really cares about your feelings and who doesn't.
