We exist a world that makes it seem like feeling is weakness.  To feel emotion is a function of life.  When you fail to feel your emotions, you began to fall apart.  

People pay for what they do, and still more for what they have allowed themselves to become. And they pay for it very simply; by the lives they lead.
James Baldwin (1924-1987)
Nobody Knows My Name (1961)

I think we have been strong for too long,  the real strength comes in facing your life. Feeling your emotions and crying when tears are stinging at your eyes.  This idea of strength, that so many people carry with them is debilitating.  You can only fake it for so long before you begin to forget what it is like to be real.  What feeling is really like, then feelings starts to become debilitating because you are afraid of how you will respond to the emotions. Today embrace your emotions, they are real and you deserve to have emotions.
