we’ve grown up to think that crying is a sign of weakness. a public outcry of hurt is weakness. we mock it constantly, with the ‘emo,’ stereotype amongst many others. and there are people who take it for granted, but we have pushed it so far to a point that we have forgotten that emotions hit and they hit hard.
there’s an ongoing trend of being, ‘hard,’ the rejection of hurt, the poker face during moments of pain, the heartless monster, the ‘nothing-can-hurt-me’ mentality. that rejection of hurt is just accumulated thin layers of hate, thin layers of anger, thin layers of cold-ness, because god-forbid you are ever truly sad about anything.
but the more these layers accumulate, the more our facade of being people who are incapable of being hurt, the more delicate we become. the more we are prone to collapse, and the higher our layers, the harder we collapse.
we have forgotten that what protects our heart from everything that hurts is layers of skin, flesh and bone. and that’s just the physical stuff. there are stuff that winds it’s way down through our bodies and hits us hard. and we fight it, because we have forgotten that though we are bendable, we are also equally breakable.
i think that either consciously or sub-consciously all of us really need someone to hold us dear, hold us gently and treat us as the fragile creatures we are and tell us that we are needed and that we are beautiful and that we are loved and forever loved.
because we ARE needed, we ARE beautiful and we ARE loved forever. it’s just the pain with those attributes that make it seemingly unbearable, it’s the pain that comes with those attributes that makes us feel like we have to have a stiff upper lip and swallow our tears when all we want to do is break down on the floor, our sobs heaving, but we can’t because it’s weak.
it’s not weak, it’s human. we are human and we feel.
All of their physical characteristics start to disappear. You begin to dwell in their energy, recognize the scent of their skin. You see only the essence of the person, not the shell. That’s why you can’t fall in love with beauty or looks. You can lust after it, be infatuated by it, want to own it. You can love it with your eyes and your body, but not your heart. That’s why when you really connect with a person, any physical imperfections disappear, become irrelevant.
Korean artist Yeondoo Jung came to the phenomenal idea to convert children’s drawings into reality. He has collected more than 1,000 children’s drawings, chose the best and turned them into real scenes.
Oooh, just youtubed it, that's rad. I like that she's taking a more mature approach to her music now, because she's definitely talented. I wasn't into her super poppy stuff before, but it's cute just like never shout never and stuff.
initially i didn’t like her because her music video to ice was really gross, hahah. i saw it at the mall and i was literally was like, “who is this hot topic scene queen?” but i think she’s really cute!
