The other day I caught myself giving a “thumbs up”. I had to stop for a minute because a thumbs up is not my usual way of communicating. I thought on this a bit and realized that I was actually taking an emotional “short cut”; not putting energy into the exchange, not using my words. It made me ):
Real emotions are complex, you can feel them. They cause the hair to stand up on your arm, the eyes to well with tears and the heart to skip a beat. In a world where emotions are taught to be buried and controlled, I say go ahead and feel, express, and contribute. Don’t be the emoji. Don't make "the face".
