You feel like no one will understand, or worse, no one will even care to listen; no matter how hard you try to explain.
But you don’t blame them because you can’t understand yourself either. When you can’t figure your own self out, how the hell will you be able to communicate with other people in a way that will make sense to them?
You don’t want to bother anyone nor be accused of just thinking too much.
You don’t want to be vulnerable only to have your feelings invalidated.
So you decided to keep everything in, trying to get a hold of the whirlwind of emotions boiling inside you.
But you know too well that you can only handle so much.
And deep inside, you’re hoping that there is someone who will hear you out without judgement.
The chaos in your mind is what makes you unique and beautiful. And anything unique and beautiful is not meant to be understood but to be accepted and appreciated instead.
So why bother trying to make everyone understand? Just let it be. Those who truly care for you will stay no matter what.
If you’re trying to figure your life out but you seem to end up feeling lost along the way, it’s okay. Look around and ask for help, if needed. Everyone felt clueless at some point in their lives, too. If you think that you’re on the wrong path, don’t be afraid to turn around and start again. In the end, what matters most are the things that you’ve learned on your journey. Don’t count your failures. Make each failure count by using them as the foundation for your stronger self.
Your feelings and emotions are valid. Don’t let others tell you otherwise. Allow yourself to feel because you don’t owe an explanation to anyone. Never suppress your emotions just because you’re scared of being seen as a weak person. Your ability to feel deeply is never, and will never be, a weakness. In fact, being able to accept the presence of something deep in you is a sign of courage. Being soft makes you strong.
Feel free to express yourself. Again, you are unique and beautiful. You are meant to be appreciated and accepted as you are. You don’t need to be understood.
Those who truly care will always stay.
Those who are worthy for you to keep in your life.
Look around. Open your eyes, feel with your heart, and be guided by your mind.
And you will never feel like no one understands you again.
