What are you hiding behind your optimism?

DSC_0159I’m dreadfully afraid of feeling negative emotions, because it could take away all the progress I’ve done so far. I’m caught in a hurricane of thoughts, convincing me that one tear will destroy everything.
For this very reason I’m stuck in a vicious circle that gathers and hides everything I wish to relinquish, so I could seem positive and happy. I used to tell myself that I don’t have to be someone I don’t want to be, that I don’t have to pretend. But now, when I’m building my future around me, there’s too much at stake, so I need the positivity to keep going. To keep building.

I’m desperately trying to seize the day and ignore the fact, that this happiness has only an outside effect. And you? What are you hiding behind your optimism?

  1. Typically, one of the primary emotions, like fear or sadness, can be found underneath the anger. Fear includes things like anxiety and worry, and sadness comes from the experience of loss, disappointment or discouragement.

  2. There are things that feel like I have no control over them, be it from the standpoint of education, from the standpoint of looking for a job, or from the standpoint of looking for love, but still, take everyday that you have right by the horns, because in the end everything will fall in place, things tend to work out, we just need to push them in the right direction.
