Emotional Soul

Monday, April 16, 2018
"If your emotional abilities aren't in hand, if you don't have self-awareness, if you are not able to manage your distressing emotions, if you can't have empathy and have effective relationships, then no matter how smart you are, you are not going to get very far."
― Daniel Goleman

Hard Ass

I like to act like I'm a hard ass, like nothing will phase my soul. And for my most part, it's true. I don't put/show a lot of emotions for things, especially sad emotions. I don't cry as easily as most girls - like sad movies don't make me shed a tear (except if an animal is hurt or injuried, that just breaks my heart into a million pieces). I don't get hurt when people say negatives things about me. I am however, not afraid to show my mad side. If you make me angry, I'll let you know. I'm mostly vocal in that sense and I think a lot of it is because I'm super honest and I don't care who's feelings I hurt because I wouln't care if someone said anything about me. People are open to their own opinions.

Hidden Emotions

But deep, deep down, in this thick skin I've grown, I'm an emotional soul - especially when it comes to Israel and our relationship (and of course, Berkeley). I'm such a sap and I feel like our life is a real life fairy tale. He's my Prince Charming that saved me from a wretched path to shine light on the path we're suppose to have together. As much as I don't like acting like it, I'm clingy towards Israel. I want to spend as much time as I can with him. If I have to choose between going out with friends and staying home with Israel - Israel would win every single time. He just makes my hard ass attitude disappear and it almost seems non-existent.

And on the flip side, any time Israel and I get into any sort of argument, I will just burst into tears. I have no idea what it is, but I just get all sorts of sad and just bawl until we stop arguing. It can legit be the smallest arguemnt, like he jokingly calls me ugly and I get sometimes just so over worked and make a big deal and will just cry. But the best part about Israel, he knows how to keep the situation tame and calms the situation.

And honestly, I feel like I'm a better person when I'm able to express all these emotions - even the sad ones. Because of all these emotions, we grow - better, stronger and happier - together. We understand each other a little more and learn to love each other a lot more.

So find someone that will make you smile to no end. Or break you down because you need to have a break down to understand what you need to grow together as a couple. Have someone that will break you out of your shell and allow you to express all emotions without making you feel like a complete and utter idiot. Find your "Israel" because every girl needs their's!
