The Truth Of A Person's Inner Thoughts

The Truth Of A Person's Inner Thoughts

Is it possible for someone to explain their true feelings?

As people, we go through things that will make our minds wander through the seven wonders of life. We encounter countless things to make heavy weights on our minds and make a heavy heart. But when it comes to telling the truth to our feelings, we dare not to fully articulate how we really feel. How can you tell someone the truth of personal feelings, when uncertainties are formed, and then the feeling of being vulnerable? Expressing your feelings is never an easy task, and it'll never get easy, when one person

Countless times, when I've said and done, "If I don't express the way I feel how can it backfire on me at the end?" Foolish thinking that was. When holding back the truth, people still find ways to be upset with you or pressure you to tell them the truth. When expressing your feelings to a person you like, or interested in most times it's hard to explain what's going on in your head and to get it out verbally. That moment of "what if" hits hard, then you pull back the truth, and tell them something jokingly. I have done this countless times, and recently too. You want to open the doors of my mind, reach inside and see my nude thoughts.

If you are human, then anybody should know when it comes to our emotions we may have everything all figured out in our head, but can never articulate them to another person. Feelings they come they grow strong, and when it's time to talk about them, you can't without so much passion, sometimes frustration, emotion. So why tell the truth of my feelings, when I can just hold back, and just scratch the surface. Not saying to decipher them like a codex, or puzzle to be finished. I've been in a position twice now, where I could boldly express the way I feel, but in the end nothing good comes out of it. I explain where I'm coming from and it seem like nothing even matters.

Be very lucky for the few who can express themselves openly, a lot of people say that they can express how they truly feel but that isn't always the case.

An Open Letter To The Girl Trying To Get Healthy Again

"I see you eating whatever you want and not exercising" - Pants

Dear girl trying to get back in shape,

I know it's hard. I know the hardest thing you may do all day is walk into the gym. I know how easy it is to want to give up and go eat Chicken McNuggets, but don't do it. I know it feels like you work so hard and get no where. I know how frustrating it is to see that person across the table from you eat a Big Mac every day while you eat your carrots and still be half of your size. I know that awful feeling where you don't want to go to the gym because you know how out of shape you are. Trust me, I know.

The important thing is you are doing something about it. I'm sure you get mad at yourself for letting your body get this out of shape, but life happens. You have made a huge accomplishment by not having a soda in over a month, and those small changes are huge. I understand how hard it is, I understand how frustrating it is to not see results and I understand why you want to give up. Being healthy and fit takes so much time. As much as I wish you could wake up the day after a good workout with the 6 pack of your dreams, that just isn't the reality. If being healthy was easy, everyone would do it, and it wouldn't feel so good when you got there.

Remember how last January your resolution was to get back in the gym and get healthy again? Think about how incredible you would look right now if you would have stuck with it. The great thing is that you can start any time, and you can prove yourself wrong.

Tired of starting over? Then don't give up.

You are only as strong as your mind. You will get there one day. Just be patient and keep working.

Nothing worth having comes easy. If you want abs more than anything, and one day you woke up with them, it wouldn't be nearly as satisfying as watching your body get stronger.

Mental toughness is half the battle. If you think you are strong, and believe you are strong, you will be strong. Soon, when you look back on the struggle and these hard days, you will be so thankful you didn't give up.

Don't forget that weight is just a number. What is really important is how you feel, and that you like how you look. But girl, shout out to you for working on loving your body, because that shit is hard.

To the girl trying to get healthy again, I am so proud of you. It won't be easy, it will take time. But keep working out, eating right, and just be patient. You will be amazed with what your body is capable of doing.

Happiness Is Working Towards New Goals

Happiness is short-lived.

What is happiness?

A state of well-being that encompasses living a good life.

Good fortune.

A mental or emotional state of well-being accompanied by pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy.

Happiness has a different meaning to everyone. It could mean having no more school for the rest of the year or getting tickets to see your favorite artist in concert or even just getting to eat at your favorite restaurant. Until recently, my understanding of happiness was just feeling good (happy) at a specific moment of time.

Last quarter, in my life science class, my professor introduced a concept that has since changed my perception of happiness. He stated that the nature of happiness was a paradox and that happiness itself is elusive.

To put it into perspective, think about setting a goal and reach it. Rather than deriving intense happiness and pleasure from attaining the goal, his main point was that we get more out of the process of working towards that goal.

Thinking of happiness that way was mind-boggling to me. I felt bamboozled. It was a complete 180 to what I’d been brought up to believe happiness was. After he said that, I started reflecting on goals that I’d set and achieved in the past. I mean, he couldn’t be right, right? It sounded bizarre. But the more I thought, the more it seemed to fall into sense.

For example, let’s say you want to start exercising more and get more so-called “fit.” If you’re determined, you will reach your goal, or will you really? While you may reach your “goal weight” or “bod goals,” you wouldn’t stop there. Instead, you’d continue to exercise, striving to get an even “better” body, always improving.

In another instance, let’s go back to the example of getting concert ticket to see your favorite artist. OK, you’re happy, ecstatic even when you realize you’ll actually be seeing them perform live. Then you’re at the concert and feeling even more of that. When the concert’s over you’re not NOT going to plan on seeing another concert, you’ll plan to see more.

However, thinking of happiness as something unattainable permanently is pessimistic, bleak even. One thing to take away from this is to be happy and content with where you are. If you’re happy in one moment, then in the next don’t start putting it down and thinking of ways of how it could have been better.
