Why is it that it’s cool to be an emotionless door knob?
Lots of people today will romanticize anything to make themselves seem like they have no heart.
When you pretend to have a bottomless pit where your heart should be, you miss out on so much. If you’re blocking out feelings to keep from getting hurt, you’re doing the opposite. You’re hurting yourself by pretending you have nothing to be sad or happy or angry or content about.
Feelings are feelings. Sometimes being unhappy is good for you as long as you know you can get back up on your feet afterwards. Being happy about things doesn’t show any signs of weakness, so you can just get that out of your head right now. Being happy is awesome. There’s nothing better than having something you can just smile about.
Don’t let your case of “boring individual who has no heart” get in your way of living life.
There’s not enough time in life to have no feelings.
If you got hurt at a time in your life and you vowed to never have feelings again, you’re only making it worse. Let yourself be sad. Let yourself mourn. Don’t let yourself think you aren’t capable of ever being happy again.
Whether you need someone to talk to or not, try to get yourself back up to par of feeling happy or at least just FEELING.
It is so important that you don’t go through life acting as if you have no feelings. I guarantee it.
“Potter has done too much for me for me to ever want to shit all over it. I’m never going to say: ‘Don’t ask me questions about that’. I remember reading an interview with Robert Smith from The Cure. Somebody said to him: ‘Why do you still wear all that makeup, don’t you feel a bit past it?’ And he said: ‘There are still 14-year-olds coming to see The Cure for the first time, dressed like that. I’d never want to make them feel silly.’ It’s a similar thing with Potter. People are still discovering those books and films. It would be awful for them to find out the people involved had turned their backs on it. Though sometimes, people do come up and say ‘I loved you in The Woman in Black,’ which is really sweet. That’s them knowing that it matters to me that I’ve done other stuff.”—Daniel Radcliffe for London Magazine (x)
