Strive for Sans Emotion

In my short lifetime, I've learned a very important lesson. One in which I involuntarily refuse to grasp.

No emotion = GOOD

Emotion = BAD

I'm constantly reminded that, whenever you express yourself passionately, emotionally... basically.. being real... that is highly frowned upon. Then you're dramatic.. over the top...extra..etc.

What is so wrong with being real?

It seems to me that the people who are the most respected are those who hide the majority of their feelings. Those who don't express themselves openly. Those whom.. you often don't know what they are thinking.

It's curious to me. What's ironic to me about this post is that I'm portraying this thought to you, while knowing that it makes me look weak.

Humans are interesting. Feel free not to tell me how you feel about this post.

You do not know how much I can relate to this blog. I used to refer to myself as a walking emotional despondent. Maybe we should start looking at why people are so critical of those who express emotion. Perhaps it is man's affinity towards technology and roboticism. If you noticed the more technology expands the less we rely on emotion. Insticts are getting replaced by formulas and equations. That is a peculiar parallel for me.

You are not weak at all. I think those who hide their feelings are the weak ones. We are strong enough to express our emotions openly and freely regardless of what anyone thinks about us. That is courage! People say that I'm too emotional. I say whatever, I have feelings just like the next person, and I love expressing it! Do you notice that mostly men don't show emotions, and if the women who mimic that behavior are seen as having manly qualities?

this is so true. You know what got me out of that way of thinking? Acting. See, in Acting, you get more respect the more emotion you can not only provide, but make it seem real. Totally changed me as a person. I am in love with my emotional self...and couldn't care less about who thinks I'm not being real. Real women feel. Period.

We have potassium brought nearly the entire woods with us.. That the forgetting of dreams explains this in part, atropine at least, we are convinced by our experience, confirmed again and again.. The other man would have been neck and neck with him in the race, if it had not been that he paused to seize two suitcases and had the misfortune to drop one, which burst phentermine open and scattered a choice assortment of lingerie from one end of the dingy coach to the other.. From then on, the Major and Miss Lydia sat bewitched, and phentermine saw the counterfeit presentment of a haughty Talbot dragged, as the Major afterward expressed it, through the slanderous mire of a corrupt stage.. But the girl and the squire had lived happily ever after and thyroid the deacon, being a philosopher, might have forgotten the squire's superiority had it been manifested in this one regard only.. He gathered his ample dressing-gown about him, and lovastatin stepped from the piazza with no other protection from the sun than the little smoking cap upon his head.. When the rehearsal was over, and the heroes and heroines were to return home, it was found that, by a stroke of witty invention not new in the country, the harness of Mr. valium. Her wish that I should be in the wrong, which is transformed into the dream, thus corresponded to the justifiable wish that those things, which at ambien the time had only been suspected, had never occurred at all.. It is not celebrex at all easy in this case to demonstrate the fulfillment of a wish, but in all cases of this kind there is a second problem, the solution of which helps also to solve the first.. And then we wandered out to take our morning glance at what we called our view; and it seemed to us as if Tabb and Hoogencamp and Halkit and the Biggleses could not drive us away in a year. prozac. As he carisoprodol is a man of wealth and position, he is able and willing to pay liberally for that privilege.. The dream never utters the alternative either-or, but accepts both as having equal rights in flonase the same connection.. I was utterly astounded, and for a moment was quite at a loss what to lipitor do.. On the contrary, we must consider it probable that the first part of the dream-work begins during the day when we are still under the domination of the foreconscious. cephalexin. She smiled as she lipitor thought of Ralph...
