I live on the edge of my emotions.
Some people say I'm too emotional because I don’t run from my feelings; I cry out
loud (without reservation) and I laugh hard (even when others think it’s
wrong). Maybe some people think I’m crazy. And in a way I am (in the good way).
only way I know how to be, is to be honest with myself and with others about
what I’m experiencing. And my experiences are rich with feeling. Otherwise, I figure, what’s the point?
Why pretend that we are not
emotional beings or say that we can control our feelings when really --
Why should we? They are what makes us human, and real, and exciting.
It's living on the edge.
Now listen, I’m
not saying to sit and wallow, or be a psycho. I’m saying that it’s emotions
that make life full; that paying attention to them, experiencing them, and expressing
them is what give life it’s meaning.
How boring life would be without passion. And passion is emotions with the volume turned up -- isn't it?
That’s why we like movies, because
they make us feel something! And, whether we admit it or not, that’s
what we want -- to be touched in someway -- to be moved.
So, I’m not afraid to acknowledge and express my feelings. I do it freely and openly. I find that when I don’t, I don’t feel good.
ignore what’s going on with me is untrue; it robs me
(and others) of fully experiencing who I am -- And that doesn't
work for me. So, you won't find me there. I'll be where a passion for life is celebrated. I'll be living on the edge of my emotions.
So I invite you too. Come on over to the edge
. . .it's a beautiful view.
