Cry Baby

It has been proved that no one cries without an authentic emotional trigger. Whatever is the motivation behind tears, they are rooted in a heartfelt emotion. You can't fake tears and that’s why they're so hard to turn off.

But I have seen people who cry very often. It's like their emotions have direct connections with their tear ducts. They cry not only for sad things like a movie or thinking of something sad but also in frustration and anger. They cry when they feel helpless. They get hurt easily and react with much feeling to the world around them. ANY emotion comes out as tears. There’s a difference between crying because of a movie and crying for absolutely no reason!! But people cry. I don't understand it. It might be possible that I don’t understand them; they might be very sensitive or emotional. I don’t even tell them to toughen up because they will be same no matter how many times you advise them. They respond to any kind of pressure or conflict with tears.

Sometimes I feel that there is nothing wrong if someone cries often. We can say that we are not as prone to crying as other people, we feel and express our emotions in a different way but not by crying. Actually everyone cries, most people just keep it personal, they keep it private.

Are You Angry??

People say I get angry very soon; the word patience is fictional to me. I know they are right. There were the occasions when I got really upset but I chose not to say anything. In these circumstances, whenever I get angry, I leave my room for a couple of minutes, listen to some music, or distract myself. I let myself feel the emotion, but I don’t let myself react. I got to know that the greatest remedy for anger is delay.

Gautam Buddha said, “Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.” Anger is the ugly stepchild of emotions; it can destroy you when it comes to your life. Anger is normal for every one unless it is persistent and out of control. It can have severe consequences on our lives, health and state of mind. You will hurt yourself more than you would the other.

I know that anger is an emotion which cannot be evaded, but the truth is that we should not succumb to it. The best way to control anger is to control yourself. With a little practice, it becomes a part of your life and you become a person who never lets anger to spoil a cherished relationship.

Don’t let your anger to control you. You can learn to keep your temper from hijacking your life. Anger is just an emotion, don't let it rule you.
