Today's society has deemed it unacceptable to show emotions or "have feelings." The constant trend of being heartless has consumed the younger generation and caused many to not be in touch with their inner selves. So, to anyone deemed too emotional or too sensitive, this is the perfect read for you.

As human beings, emotions are inevitable and that is perfectly okay. Emotions allow us to feel the various internalized hardships that we keep inside. These hardships can stem from the death of a loved one, a tough breakup, or an altercation that is merely a piece of the past. Regardless of what this tragedy may be, there is no rule stating that an individual must simply "suck it up" or "deal with it." The only issue is: sucking it up and dealing with it leads to another generation of the blind leading the blind.

Aside from internal hardships, being emotional allows an individual to have a true understanding of self. An understanding of self is vital in order to effectively guide others. Internalized issues can sometimes cause others to lash out on those who are just trying to help. It may not be personal on your end, however, it can cause others to stray away from you. However, mastering the art of being emotional can give some of the best outcomes.

Accepting emotions for what they are to you and not anyone else is one of the best forms of self-love. Not only will you feel better, but you can subconsciously help those around you begin to truly understand you for who you are.
