Once upon a time I was very proud of being an emotional person. I considered emotions to be the only sign of liveliness. On the other hand I always saw practicality as heartlessness.
As I saw more life, I realized that emotions have invited numerous scars on my heart. When I cherished extreme pleasure I also suffered from intense pain. I wasted many good moments of my life nursing the wounds of my bleeding heart. I chose smiles over tears…yes I chose happiness!!
I disciplined my emotions to protect my heart. Slowly and steadily I took baby steps away from my dreamworld and got more practical day by day. I had begun to explore the other side of emotions which was being practical.
As time passed, I smiled more effortlessly and my eyes hardly dropped a tear even when I was in intense grief.
That was the time I saw the pain hidden behind many tearless eyes…
