If this contradiction were to be believed

They say showing your emotions overtly is wrong. They say exhibiting your anger is poison.

There are always two ways, if not many. You can’t always be wrong. You have a right to your emotional well-being. Silence isn’t a mark of weakness. Every person who complains loud isn’t always right.

These are the things they don’t tell us. Each and every person has a threshold. Too much of goodness also has its flaws.You should know when and when not to voice out your opinion. It’s okay to showcase one’s emotions, once in a while, otherwise you’ll be trodden over. After-all, sharing is caring :- what better way than to showcase and share your emotions?

  1. Kitty, I think the prompt line goes so well with Sadje’s image. Your poem speaks to them both so well. That balance and how to manage it without going into what I consider the dangerous extreme territory. People get hurt that way, probably oneself most of all. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and participating in the dVerse prompt ❤
