"To show emotions is not a sign of weakness,
It's a sign of strength.
To cry is not a picture of vulnerability,
It's a sign that you're alive."
If I were to be honest, I'd say these are some of the quotes I hate most. Why? Because it's irrelevant and in my eyes, it's just a lame excuse to give in to emotions. To whoever created this, well guess what.
In this world where human devour each other, there is no place to hide. No space to show weakness. You fall, you get swept away and you'll lose. It's a tough world we're living in. Where corruption rules logic, where dirty cash values more than a human life. People preach about love and peace, yet, I see no difference. Sayings like emotions are what keep us human is non-existant any longer. Emotions were what drove that man to abuse his family. Emotions were what drove that girl to jump off the bridge. Emotions were what made human do the unthinkable. If that's the case, then why are we born with these burdens? They're nothing but clouds for our judgments. Blindfolds of our rationality. They're excuses for our mistakes. And yet, they're also the sentiments that human beings hold on to. The cause, they said, to their lives.
I can't say. I don't understand. Just like the human brains, it's an enigma. A riddle that cannot be solved but still makes it a subject of interest. Someday, I wish to understand. To comprehend the need for such fragile links of our lives when there's a lot more out there that's stronger, and yet not treasured just as much. I want to understand.
So that one day, I can learn to live with them too.
