Feelings Talk

I think emotions are ridiculous. And interesting (hence my studying people and how they work). A conclusion that my roommates and I have come to is that you cannot control how you feel, but you can control what you do with those feelings. I personally don't trust my feelings unless they endure for more than a week. Sometimes I feel like my emotions are like the weather- it can be sunny, rainy, or perhaps a thunderstorm, but you wouldn't really know if it was summer or winter unless it was sunny consistently, or the snow stayed. Sometimes it rains in the middle of summer, and sometimes winter surprises us with a warm day. Enough with the metaphors- the point is that I am ridiculous, and rarely even take myself seriously so I would hope others wouldn't either.

I think that's about all I had to say. I felt a lot of emotions this week, but I've just come to the conclusion, again, that it's important to wait things out before taking action. This week has lead to a solid bit of disappointment, but I think it would have been less disappointing had I been more patient and waited for things to endure before taking them seriously. So, lesson learned, again, and here's  to a brighter tomorrow.

Even if we have to learn the same lessons we've learned before, at least it's some sort of progress. It's tempting to be irritated with myself for my delayed ability to catch on, but that too will pass, and everything will be alright.
