She has always been that sensitive soul since her childhood. Who used to start crying when someone raised their voice at her. Who used to bawl her eyes out on stupid insignificant things, when scolded by anyone or even when she got a little bruise and hurt herself.
And it's not only physical. She has been an emotionally vulnerable person, always. The only outlet to her emotions she has ever known, is crying them out. Whether it's in sadness, happiness, anger. Anything. The answer has always lied in crying.
In this stereotypical world of today, a person crying in public or often, is considered weak. To summarise, if a person, whether a man or a woman, tries to express any of their emotions in public, except happiness of course, has always been classified as a fragile human being. Made fun of, in the worst circumstances.
Hence, she was no exception to bearing that kind of wrath since her childhood. And till now. The people around her, always used to ask her to toughen up and be strong. How? By not shedding tears at all. And carry a cold, unforgiving face to wherever she went. No matter what the situation was.
She tried, to be honest. 'Cause at that time, this thing had been ingrained in the brain of a little child, that crying makes you seem weak in front of the whole world. So she tried to keep a hard exterior all the time. But guess what? She failed. And continue to do so till now.
But after growing up, she analyzed this thing all over again. And then she found the one positive and courageous thing everyone had been ignoring till now.
That if she had the guts of showing her emotions blatantly in front of this ruthless world, she was not the one who had been weak. In fact, she had always been displaying extreme courage by accepting her true self, her emotions, instead of hiding them and killing herself out of suffocation. Even when the world continued to mock her about it.
So next time, if someone asks you to stop crying like a baby, tell them that if I'm able to do that, in front of you or anyone in this harsh world, I am the one who is being fearless. And daring. But certainly not a weak one.
