Hello there, it’s been a while. Life has its ups and downs and no one can escape the obstacles we encounter during life. I think that no one better than Thomas can attest to that. He has sent me a few more writings, which I will publish this week.
This one here is a post I believe many can relate to, how to handle our emotions in the presence of others, when being emotionally open is often frowned upon and considered “weak” or even “not manly enough.”
Please find below Thomas’s thoughts.
My Emotionally Different Team
The hating of others for being different has been so overly endured that I believe we have lost ourselves hiding from or trying to fit in so that we won’t be on the outs of the popularity mob.
I call these The storms of Hate! It’s accepted by the emotionally different because striving to get people to understand our differences is quite taxing on our emotional spirits
We who are emotionally different have a fundamental Unique dispersion by being connected with our emotions. Yet our emotions are like forms of sand.
A negative hateful storm can leave us firm, at times enduring even. As we also know, a fast running heavy surf makes our emotional beach flat and smooth, void of ourselves, While a longish period of calm weather leads to a disintegration of this suffered surface with the disappearance of the moisture that binds the particles of our sand together,
Yet when we turn our eyes inward and take account what damage has this hateful storm left behind? It makes me think, “Why should our emotions be exiled to connect with the same people who can’t accept Us as we are?”
Please know the place or box one’s placed in doesn’t make any healthy contribution to peace of mind, it’s the spirit of our emotions that makes everything agreeable to ourselves that’s what truly matters,
I’ve seen people sunk into the gloom in the most cheerful and delightful circumstances, It’s because they want to be disconnected from their emotions, Made of iron so to say.
Yet My Emotional Different Team We have precious connections able to have pieces of our true friends within us and accepted wholeheartedly by our emotional connected spirits by remembering that our Million Dollar Spirits are never absent from one another, We are seen daily and felt, even more, trying to fit in. ❤️
My different people who share in my studies, my meals, my walks, Life would be restricted indeed if there were any barrier to our imaginations, I see you My dear Emotional Differences.
Those who are seen as quiet please Know it’s necessary as the tears that flow out of our eyes because we can’t bear not being seen how we should yet be boxed in by way of these Hateful Popular Storms.
Hate is a harmful consequence to their inactive emotional capabilities so they seek to put Us down for our overactive emotional responses,
Please, Be You whether it’s Emotionally difficult to be around people or ourselves but let’s learn from the hateful conflicts people create within us that it’s their issues, not our own, at the moment of Us enduring.
By Thomas Porter
The emotions that we have towards other people are kind and do not judge others for what they look like. We all have emotions and we see hate in others peoples eyes not kindness. This is a powerful message to read and will pass this on.
Thank you for sharing!
It can be a hard challenge to open ourselves and display our emotions. Even with loved ones many of us can struggle, and in other environments, it is that much more difficult or nearly impossible for many of us.
I am so glad I found this and thank you for sharing!
Thank you, Lee. Thomas writes beautifully, always. His writings always touch us in some way 🙂
This really resonated with me – “striving to get people to understand our differences is quite taxing on our emotional spirits”. It is indeed so true. It is like constantly butting your head against the wall which eventually gives you a headache – if you don’t damage it!! After all, it is indeed their issues and not yours. Very poignant writing.
