Human Emotions x

I was on Facebook the other day and I came across a friends status that went like this :

We're all walking around with these glossy eyes . "I'm tired," we say . But you know what ? It's bullshit. Yes , we are tired , but it's not all from lack of sleep . We are tired of waking up with nothing to look forward to , tired of going to bed exhausted after doing a million things we find no enjoyment doing . We're tired of this void , this emptiness that looms over us even though our days are packed . We're tired of the lonliness that presses down on us even though we're surrounded by dozens of people . So why can't we just say it ? Humans are so afraid to look into each other's eyes and say, "I am unhappy , I am broken , I am hopeless and fallible." We've been conditioned to associate pain with weakness , sadness with coldness , lonliness with unworthiness , difference with disease , as if these feelings are contagious , as if ambivalence is something not to be felt but to be feared . Well , I say screw all of that . Screw forced smiles and polite handshakes and I'm fine , thankyou . Screw all the fear of crying in public place , screw the fake chipper voice , screw the lies we spit to cover up our problems . We are humans . We are meant to feel . To feel everything and to feel it openly . We are not mental - we are flesh and bone . Our boiled blood courses through out cold , clammy hands . We are intricate and beautiful and we should never hide our human parts , because if we do , then what's left to show ?

As I read it , I thought how true it all is . Us humans , especially in New Zealand , we hardly ever show emotion , because we're scared that we'll get judged by it . Waht are your thoughta on this ? Do you agree or disagree ? Why ?

I'm curious to know how other humans feel because some people aren't afraid to show their emotion , no matter where they are . I admire these people , their strength to overcome judgements and expectations of others .

I also came across a video .
Watch it . It's so inspirational . This woman is so strong . She gives me hope .

And I've decided that I may start blogging about more personal stuff again , sometime soon , because I think I'm finally ready to be myself and say what I want again , after all the shit that went down last time I did that on my blog .
