Our generation paints this great big picture that acting like you don't care is the "cool trend" nowadays, but it's actually sad more than anything because who came up with something so idiotic?

Now, I know I am a bit of a hypocrite for saying this because of course, there have been many times when I have acted like I didn't care about a particular scenario and set my emotions aside just for the simple fact that I don't want to bother people, or may others thing I am crazy with whatever my mind is thinking.

However, at the same time, the words that come out of my mouth might be "I don't care," but the reality is that I care. I care a whole damn lot and I am not ashamed of it. I recognize that I am not too cool to care and instead, I express myself and show my emotions because I would honestly rather feel everything than to feel nothing at all and just pretend like I am an emotionless robot.

The reason I bring this is up is that I saw this little blurb on a blog post that I was skimming through and I had to share with it others. It said something along the lines of "It's so sad that our generation thinks it is cool not to care because it's not. Effort is cool. Caring is cool. Staying loyal is cool."

Such a simple thought that is so powerful and I hope that more people begin to acknowledge that they are not "crazy" by any means just because they show emotions and express them instead of just holding them all inside and eventually blowing up like a balloon.

All of the emotions and feelings we experience make us all human beings and no one should have to pretend like they are bigger than that just because everyone else in our generation does. I think this occurs more so when it comes to relationships, especially for most guys.

For some reason, guys think it is super cool and trendy to act all tough and end up playing games with girls and their feelings. Newsflash, it does not make you any less of a man for showing that you care, but I think some guys have yet to grasp that concept.

You should be grateful that you are able to feel so much and embrace it, even if at the time it may not be the most beautiful sight. Unfortunately, that is the harsh reality of life, it is not always going to be rainbows and butterflies and confetti and picture perfect like you may have planned.

You are going to cry like a baby sometimes, you are going to get pissed off and yell sometimes, and you are going to feel heartache at one point or another. But, this is what makes you who you are and it makes you stronger in the end.

"Never apologize for being sensitive or emotional. It's a sign that you have a big heart, and that you aren't afraid to let others see it. Showing your emotions is a sign of strength." -Brigitte Nicole
