We are humans

No one should feel the need to hide their emotions and feelings. Stop saying, "I'm fine." and then wondering why nobody understands you, supports you, is there for you and helps you through life's obstacles. People aren't psychic, we need to tell them how they feel for them to help us. No, it isn't attention seeking. It's just asking for help. Help we all need. We are humans. We all need help, support, attention, love and affection.

We're all walking around with those glossy eyes. "I'm just 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 in doing. We're tired of this void, this emptiness 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, loneliness with unworthiness, difference with disease, as if those feelings are contagious, as if ambivalence is something not to be felt but to be feared. Well, I say: screw all of that. Screw forces smiles and polite handshakes, and I'm fine, thank yous. Screw the fear of crying in a public place, screw the fake chipper voice, screw the lies we spit out to cover up our problems. We are humans. We are meant to feel. To feel everything and to feel it all openly. We are not metal - we are flesh and bone. Our boiled blood courses through or 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?

I am here for you.
Stay strong,
You're insanely beautiful.


  1. I think sometimes people turn round and not admit how unhappy they are because ppl around them don't care or won't help.

    Sometimes it's a way of protecting yourself and then some feel like they are being ungrateful by saying they are unhappy when ppl around them are in worst situations

    But you are right, we need to speak up when we are unhappy as how else will others know. I'm guilty of not speaking out sometimes, but that's because I find it difficult to talk

    1. I do agree with you. We just have to find the right people to open up to. Some don't really care, they're just nosy. It's kind of sad really. I think it's important for you to let people know that you do care about them and that you actually want to help them. And if people open up to you, you should support them and do your best to be there for them. The more people who get this attitude, the easier it will be for others to open up.
      Thank you for stopping by!

  2. I agree with Foz.. And unfortunately not everyone you open up to has your best interest at heart. Therefore before opening up to someone, you need to know you can fully trust them and rely on them.

    1. Exactly! Thank you for reading and leaving a comment :) ♥
