For some people, emotions are significant aspects of their lives. People cry in the midst of sad moments, happy moments, and everything in between. People also pour their feelings out to other people and expect others to do the same for them. You, on the other hand, are not one of those people. You enjoy being happy and not dealing with yours or other peoples' feelings. The thought of crying in front of others or being around crying people makes you cringe, because that's just not what you do. You've never been one to express or deal with emotions, and you probably never will be. Here are 10 things all unemotional people can relate to:

1. People assume you're heartless.

It's not that you don't have feelings, you just don't have too many negative ones. You may have occasional fits of anger, but sadness? Not so much. You just choose not to deal with crying or talking about your feelings. Why be sad when being happy is so much more fun?

2. You're the only one who doesn't cry during sad movies or sappy chick flicks.

All of your friends tear up at the ending of cheesy romantic movies, but you're just like:

Even the movies that are legitimately sad don't really have a tear-jerk effect on you. You just can't bring yourself to feel sad about something that's not real. Even if it was based on real events, you still see it as just a movie.

3. Senior nights, graduations, final performances, and other "final moments" that are sad for everyone else don't have much of an effect on you.

The end of something that was great is a little sad, but you knew it was coming, so what's the point of getting upset about it? Things end and life goes on, and that's perfectly fine with you.



4. You don't understand how people can so easily cry in front of other people.

Even if you do cry often, you sure as hell wouldn't do it in front of anyone. That's just too many feelings and too many people to deal with them. You can handle it yourself.

5. You don't know what to do when people cry in front of you.

It's not that you're not sympathetic; you don't like seeing people sad or crying because nobody should have to deal with sadness. But mostly, you don't like seeing people sad or crying because you simply don't know how to react. Should you get them a tissue? Should you hug them? Should you pet them? Who knows? You'll just be awkward and find someone else to help you out in the meantime.



6. You don't like when people tell you about their feelings.

You don't really have that many feelings, so what makes people think you're equipped to deal with theirs? You don't want to be rude, but you don't really want to hear about someone's sadness when you can't help with it.

7. If you ever do show the slightest bit of feelings, people like trying to embarrass you for them.

If you're ever even slightly upset, people who know you well like to say things like, "Wow you actually do have feelings!" Good thing you know how to play it cool.

8. You think it's stupid when people cry about a boy or a girl.

The longest you've ever spent crying over a significant other was anywhere from zero to five minutes, after which you realized that you're awesome and crying is a waste of time. You can't fathom why people cry over someone else for much longer than that. You know that anyone who lost you should be the one crying, so why let someone else keep you from being happy? You sure won't.

9. Weddings and other happy events that can be emotional for some people leave you completely dry-eyed.

You've never understood "happy tears," and you probably never will. If people are happy, why are they crying? It just doesn't make any sense to you. Maybe you're just too busy at weddings thinking about food and dancing to get emotionally invested in the happy couple.

10. In the rare event that you do feel sad or want to cry, you're pretty confident that something's wrong with you.



Maybe you're sick. Or dying. Either way, something is messed up. Then a few minutes pass and you realize that you're fine, and you keep living your life with laughter and happiness rather than sadness and other sappy, unpleasant feelings you don't care to deal with.

I'm The Girl Who'd Rather Raise A Family Than A Feminist Protest Sign

You raise your protest picket signs and I’ll raise my white picket fence.

Social Media feeds are constantly filled with quotes on women's rights, protests with mobs of women, and an array of cleverly worded picket signs.

Good for them, standing up for their beliefs and opinions. Will I be joining my tight-knit family of the same gender?

Nope, no thank you.

Don't get me wrong, I am not going to be oblivious to my history and the advancements that women have fought to achieve. I am aware that the strides made by many women before me have provided us with voting rights, a voice, equality, and equal pay in the workforce.

For that, I am deeply thankful. But at this day in age, I know more female managers in the workforce than male. I know more women in business than men. I know more female students in STEM programs than male students. So what’s with all the hype? We are girl bosses, we can run the world, we don’t need to fight the system anymore.

Please stop.

Because it is insulting to the rest of us girls who are okay with being homemakers, wives, or stay-at-home moms. It's dividing our sisterhood, and it needs to stop.

All these protests and strong statements make us feel like now we HAVE to obtain a power position in our career. It's our rightful duty to our sisters. And if we do not, we are a disappointment to the gender and it makes us look weak.

Weak to the point where I feel ashamed to say to a friend “I want to be a stay at home mom someday.” Then have them look at me like I must have been brain-washed by a man because that can be the only explanation. I'm tired of feeling belittled for being a traditionalist.

Why?

Because why should I feel bad for wanting to create a comfortable home for my future family, cooking for my husband, being a soccer mom, keeping my house tidy? Because honestly, I cannot wait.

I will have no problem taking my future husband’s last name, and following his lead.

The Bible appoints men to be the head of a family, and for wives to submit to their husbands. (This can be interpreted in so many ways, so don't get your panties in a bunch at the word “submit”). God specifically made women to be gentle and caring, and we should not be afraid to embrace that. God created men to be leaders with the strength to carry the weight of a family.

However, in no way does this mean that the roles cannot be flipped. If you want to take on the responsibility, by all means, you go girl. But for me personally? I'm sensitive, I cry during horror movies, I'm afraid of basements and dark rooms. I, in no way, am strong enough to take on the tasks that men have been appointed to. And I'm okay with that.

So please, let me look forward to baking cookies for bake sales and driving a mom car.

And I'll support you in your endeavors and climb to the top of the corporate ladder. It doesn't matter what side you are on as long as we support each other, because we all need some girl power.

No, I'm Not A Feminist, But I'd Like To Say A Couple Things

Too many questions are continuing to be unanswered.

Women are seen as vulnerable and weak. They are expected to appear socially acceptable to society. Women with curves and thicker bodies are less desired because of how social media objectifies women.

If we dress too "sexy" or "revealing", we are seen as "distracting" or "asking for it". While, wearing comfortable clothes such as sweatpants or a hoodie, we seem unappealing. If we wear too much makeup we come off as "fake", but too little means we aren't trying, and have no interest. Our hair is expected to be well groomed and taken care of.

Messiness comes off as disgusting and unattractive. It gives off they idea that we don't take care of ourselves. Women are constantly judged by their appearance. Even the way we speak gives off an impression that is immediately dissected. Our actions are being watched. Women cannot laugh too hard or speak too loud. They cannot eat too much, or too little. And don't have babies young but don't have them after thirty because that's too old.

Why is it that women are constantly worrying about how they appear to people in society.?

What about women in the workforce? There is a bias on what jobs women should and should not work. Salaries? Men will start off with a higher pay than women. Why? Because women are underestimated. Do you remember in elementary or middle school when the teacher would ask, "Can I have a couple strong boys help carry this?" Exactly.

Why is it that women are encouraged to walk with a group of friends at night, or make sure they have pepper spray on them? Women are more likely to get sexually assaulted, beaten, or have something stolen from them than men are...depending on the area. No women should have the fear that a man will attack her. But in today's society, anything can happen. That is why women are more cautious.

Like I said, I'm not a feminist. But, I do believe in justice for women. For equality.
