365 Days of Self Discovery: Feelings & Emotions


Day 41

Do you find it easy to talk about your feelings or do you bottle things up?

  • I am a little bit of both, but more so I bottle things up. I prefer to keep things to myself when I have issues going on in my life — I find it much easier at times and let’s be honest most people don’t give a care anyways, so to talk about it with just anyone is pointless to me. Although I am all for talking about it, because it is needed most of the time, especially if it causes more harm than good to bottle it up.
Are you one to bottle your emotions/feelings up or do you prefer to open up to others?

Hello! College graduate in exercise science and ACSM Certified Personal Trainer. My blog has all kinds of fun topics, something for everyone who is anyone that involves themselves with fitness. I like to think of fitness as a confidence booster, something to make us feel good and look good & pushes us to do things that make us feel more productive, unstoppable and stronger mentally and physically. My blog focuses on building people, and helping people see their true potential, while also sharing my journey with workouts, competing with powerlifting, and sharing how to's on workouts, so you step inside the gym with more knowledge. I don't know everything but I am on a voyage to build my character, my strength and work on my weaknesses --- with awesome people in my corner who support me and my goals. I plan on being your cheerleader, friend, coach and trainer all-in-one and most of all, I want to be your listener, the person who can listen and gain more knowledge about you and learn what makes fitness important to you; what's your why! (Your why will carry you to the finish line). It's important to have purpose for something, because you will need that purpose when you start to give up on yourself or want to quit.

Typical 26 year old trying to build an empire that brings out the best in others and makes me the best person I can be in all aspects in my life. Before I die, I want a reason to live, and I was given that reason each day I am able to wake up --- I have learned to not take life for granted and to explore as much as possible because to live with zero regrets would be fantastic!

      1. If we let our emotions get the best of us, just 150 years ago, the family would starve. We stuff that $#!+ down deep where it belongs, and get the work done first.


      2. Hmm this might be so, not saying it isn’t to a certain point. I suppose it is weird because women who are normally more intact with their emotions than the male counterpart seem to have been able to be emotional and still manage to get things done — maybe not necessarily as fast as men or as ruthless, but we still managed to get shit done because we had to, at some point it hit us like a rock, that we had to somehow manage no matter what we were feeling & I only know this from my own experience and having watched it growing up. I guess what I am trying to say is, regardless of sexual orientation, I believe putting the emotions behind us can make for a better chance at moving on just enough to get through the day or obstacle that arises, but in the mean time it hinders us from growing and developing in other ways because we live by the moral of “showing emotion makes us weak” when in reality, showing emotion no matter how it is accomplished, makes you stronger because you are more vulnerable than you probably have ever been.

      3. Hey, if that’s what works for you, fantastic. I’ll stick with what works for me and ensures my awesome, happy demeanor.

        I’ll just stick with that – and please, don’t misunderstand the male’s demeanor as being “ruthless” because we’re not more like women. I love that stereotype. We’re not more ruthless than women. We’re different, and different, at least I thought, was okay.


      4. I would totally agree with the statement “men are not more ruthless than women” — Different is good, genetically men and women are different and also mentally in most cases, I just question if the moral of not showing emotion due to being a male is worth preaching to kids at young ages. Considering I have two brothers, younger than myself. I believe it goes back to your environment in which someone is raised in and how they develop their overall character and perspective of life. I don’t judge a human for crying, anger, etc if you show it, great, if you don’t then I am curious but not likely going to shame you for it.
