Culture of Conditioning
Westernised society has conditioned many people to be enraptured by the such emotional rigidity, as to the falseness of how such perceived “negative emotions” and “positive emotions” are handled with.
“Faux Emotional” Responses & Polarising Negative/Positive Thought Patterns
Smiles and joy are not painted on and should never be supplied as a shallow coping mechanism for darkly thought-scapes, that means you will never understand the lessons of both true sadness and happiness, they both exist to give each other meaning and clarity.
It you are disconnected from BOTH you will never get the timely validity of either.
I have noted that some of my expressions of sadness and melancholy have confused or even upset, however these emotions just “are” they are neither “good or bad”, “right or wrong” they are a human EMOTION to be explored.
Feel things without the threat of judgement. Or put up cladding that in the end distances you further from yourself and other people.
