Go After the Small Drips

This morning I read a reminder about how small things can fill the most of the room. For instance, I like to buy something while I am going to shopping center. There is always come up one of the small thing that attracted me and makes me want to bring it home. From all those tiny things, suddenly my room is full with all those stuff. Even sometimes I wonder where can I put another stuff again – then I should give some which I don’t like anymore to someone else. But it can be such a waste and uncontrolled behavior, right?

Just like a stone that always touched by a small drips of water every each minutes, then suddenly, that tiny source of water can become such a great power to break the stones into pieces. Anger, hate, jealousy, love, feeling, sad, all emotional things – if it’s not handle it little by little, it can be such a lump of tons emotional feeling later that out from the hidden box easily and too excessive.

We might able to recognize each of small emotions that we have and go after it one by one. There is a way to avoid that small drips become into such a power that break us down (or if it was a positive emotion, it can lift us up) ; realize it and work on it every single emotions. Probably you have an anger to someone who make you sad ; those little uneasy feelings should be communicated before it becomes an enormous gigantic anger that can ruin the whole things that already built up all this time.

Such a pity that we human, tend to avoid all of those little things ; instead of being honest, we avoid to tell the truth and let our life being so white perfect in front of people. We choose to looks  as a beautiful perfect surface rather than to show our ugly and real emotions. But I always believe that every hidden things, will be appeared sooner or later.

It no needs to hide anything that we feel – oh well, all the introvert person will against my statement. But what I mean here, we can handle our each single emotions, if we feel sad ; talk about it. If we feel angry about something our friends do, talk about it. No one will know how we feel if we never talk about it. And life, life is so short to live in pretending perfect life and never being you (being you is not merely about appearance, being your also about expressing your inner real soul). If you have a different dream with your parents, say it. If you love someone, tell them. If you annoyed by your best friend, tell her. Everything in life for let you being the more you, is worth it to taking the risk.

The lucky thing that we human have, that we can freely to feel emotions. Yes, all creatures can feel emotions (I believe so), but human, we can choose to feel and give it back to another human. Those whole package emotions – bad or good, is such a beautiful collateral in our abounding life. Bad or good emotions that we have, it leads us to be us now. Emotion is that make you as human. We have our own ability to feel, accept and handle it . It allows us to feel all the good things in life, such a gift to feel loved and allows us to love in human relationship, or to feel bad emotions, anger, hatred, pain, sad, which is all OK. Only the thing is, we need to take care all the small drips of the emotions, let it free so it won’t tame us in such an emotional slave.

Don’t wait until it’s late. Don’t wait until we have a gushing fire hydrant. Address every little irritant feeling with communication, talk about it, forgive it and bring it to prayers. Feel the love, feel every each small good emotions feeling you have, talk about it, say it and express it. Go after the small drips, before our emotional baggage ; bad or good, become such a heavy stuff we bring during our journey in earth. Yes showing our emotions make us vulnerable, but it’s also make us stronger. Every things that bring us to positive growth is worth to trying and take the risk. Indeed?
