Here’s to the true spirited

The people who are different, the ones that go the opposite way to the crowds, the heretics, the ones brave enough to be vulnerable and speak their truth from their soul without fear of others are nearly always dismissed and in some cases persecuted and in extremes killed by the ‘mob’.

However, it is better to be brave enough to be vulnerable, to be lambasted ,to walk in the wilderness on a lonely path, and even to be hated by all, rather than to live a life fearing others judgement and suffering not being our true selves. People fear the egotistical calamity of actually having to admit their shame and being wrong, so they override their true essence to save face.

Here’s to the rebel, the heretics, the crazy ones, the brave and true spirited. Keep being true to yourself.

Cry on the outside

Suck it up, stiff upper lip, be strong, toughen up, be a man, harden up and so on.

A culture of believing strength is not showing emotion, not being vulnerable, a macho belief that we have to be hard as nails.

Cry on the inside and suffer from the so-called bravery.

People who choose to be really brave and open up, show their emotions, let their guard down and be vulnerable to the outside world are the ones who cry on the outside and end the suffering within.
