Sometimes I get tired of having this battle with my emotions. Why do I have to be so emotional? I swear my emotions have me feeling crazy. They have a strong hold on me which I can’t stand at times. Maybe certain situations I go through trigger my emotions to set off. Especially if I am in some type of relationship with someone. I have to protect my feelings and control my reactions because of the emotional effects.
Lord knows I try to relax and not over think things but there goes the boogeyman once again creeping up on me. That’s why I have to push certain people away before I let my emotions take over and snap! Hell, the way my mood changes make me feel bipolar. One minute I’m fine with everything then I am upset with everything that’s going on. Maybe I’m used to having my way and getting all the attention I need. When I don’t get a certain amount of attention from the person or people, I need it from it starts bothering me. Do your emotions drive you insane?
Anyways, I shared my personal issues with you to let you know that you’re not alone if you have similar experiences. Don’t let your emotions bring you down or put you in a whirlpool of depression. Get yourself together and release those negative feelings. Free your mind by going out for a while. Then again, I want you to remember to it’s okay to express your emotions if it’s through writing in a journal, venting on social media (who cares what others think about your sappy posts. If it makes you feel better go for it), talking to a trusted friend or family, or screaming at the top of your lungs. Emotions are temporary feelings.
Falling in love with someone that you want to be with and don’t know if they share mutual feelings is hard. Feelings can pull out different emotions. It’s up to you to control how you feel and what you will do next. Feelings aren’t always temporary.
Have you ever tried to stop yourself from liking somebody? It’s like you try to force yourself to not catch feelings for them but it happens. Even when you try not to think about that person you still have them on your mind. Each thought consistent of a future you could have with the person or how much time you want/wish you could have with them. There’s a spark in them that attracts you. Fighting your feelings is a tough battle. One thing you can’t deny is the fact that your feelings don’t lie. Deep down inside it uncovers the truth behind whatever you’re trying to hide.
Forcing yourself to not catch feelings seem impossible in a way. Sometimes it’s better to go with the flow of life. Let your feelings flow freely. If you feel bold or brave enough make your feelings known towards the person you’re attracted to. Make sure you carefully thought about how to approach the situation though. Try not to put yourself in an unnecessary situation. Figure out why you are trying to fight your attraction towards a person. Is it because of your past? Maybe you heard bad rumors about your crush. Possibly you made a vow to yourself to not fall deep for someone new but it’s not turning out how you thought it would. You see we all have our reasons to why we try to avoid catching feelings. It’s a risky circumstance to put yourself in. Especially if you have doubts about it.
It’s okay to be open about your feelings for someone special. Being open about your feelings can lead to something life changing. Just remember not to forget why you are careful about your feelings towards the person you are attracted to. Like I said earlier in the article your feelings don’t lie. If it’s obvious that the person is no good for you, please don’t pursue to make things serious with them. They are not worth losing yourself for. Be smart, happy, and accept your fate!
