Confidence

Confidence is shown in many different ways

So never listen to what the naysayers say

All they want, is to take yours away

It’s time you let them know, yours is here to stay

Walking

In a world where we are constantly plugged in, walking is a welcome release but even that comes with a cost. It gives you time to think and thinking can be dangerous.

While each days emotion gets easier to control, there are always those moments when you can’t help but be caught in the endless waves.

In recent times there has been a notable separation between the emotional and rational sides of thought, with logic winning the majority of the time. Today it seems emotions are running high, especially those of anger and apathy, while not usually interchangeable, they seem to be transitioning well today.

It seems the walking that gave time for clarity of thought lead to only answers that weren’t wanted, despite the fact they’re the most logical. Funny how we champion logic until it doesn’t fit the way we want it.

The hope that this reprieve will last longer is fading by the hour. All the unfortunate changes are coming and there isn’t much to be done to stop them. This storm can be weathered or run from, but the choice will need to be made soon otherwise getting caught in its path an torn apart like rag doll will be inevitable.

We can stand and fight, or run for there is nowhere left to hide anymore. 

 

Cowards

Why is it there are so many cowards in this world?

I have come across too many for it to be a sheer coincidence, it must be me and my attitude that attracts them.

There is no honour in sticking a knife in a mans back but if that is your way then be sure to drive it in deep otherwise I will pull it out and deliver it back to you straight through your throat so you can see it was me.

 

 

An Angry Man

Was it my place to get involved? No.

Did it squash the situation quickly? Yes.

I do find myself losing faith in humans. A man who should have known better decided to threaten a boy who apparently drove in to the back of him, though considering his bike was still standing and he was unhurt I think this was an exaggeration.

Getting between the two I am met with animosity, a middle aged woman also came to reinforce my calm logic.

While his threats we empty I knew all he really wanted was to vent his frustration, so that’s what I let him do. Could I have verbally castrated him because he clearly hasn’t evolved much past that of a neanderthal, yes I could have but that would have solved nothing.

Shortly after he had vented his rage he subconsciously listed to me and moved  his bike out of the way of the amassing traffic. I told the young boy to be more careful, but I don’t think this is a lesson he will soon forget.

What did amuse me about the angry man was how quickly he backed down to someone who stood up to him. I can understand he was angry, rightfully so because he could have indeed been hurt and his pride (bike) damaged, but neither happened. He was merely basing his anger on logical fallacy and ‘what ifs’ so he was acting on emotion, not logic.

In my younger days I would happily have fought with him and beaten him down with words and possibly force if needed, but those days are behind me now. After all, what is the point of senseless violence when the best was to deal with a bully is to simply have him calm himself down with a few cleverly laced words and suggestions.

Funny how people work.

Flurry

There is an immense feeling of sadness in the air tonight.

Staring out of the window and up in to nothing I can feel myself slowly slipping in to madness.

It has been less than 5min and I’ve gone through every possible emotion. From elated highs to manic lows, anything and everything that can be felt has been felt. 

This isn’t normal… This isn’t any way to live.

My Favourite Emotion

There are a lot of emotions that one person can experience, but of them all I favour one without question.

Anger is by far my favourite emotion.

It’s raw essence speaks volumes about the bearer and their true feelings, nothing else will ever give you a more true sense of a person and what they think. Everything comes to the surface, and I mean literally everything.

Over the years I have had my fair share of altercations that have been fuelled by this emotion, each time I have learnt a great deal of things and never looked back on my decision once presented with that long awaited information. There has only been one time that a persons reaction cut me deeply, the rest merely highlighted what I already suspected.

It was one of my very first dealings with the emotion of anger that lead me to look in to its psychology and how it works, while I still have a lot to learn about it, one thing that is clear is that it’s the most honest emotion we possess.

Why regret what is said in anger? You’re only speaking the truth after all, and no matter how much you deny it it’s still the truth.

We are often wrong about a  great many things, mainly because we want to believe most of what we are told that is governed by one of our other emotions, this can leave you confused, at least with anger you know exactly where you stand. It cuts through all the bull shit, it tells you what you need to hear with no holds barred and that  is why it’s my favourite emotion.

I wonder what your favourite emotion is?

Will you share it with me…
