Some may say that it is weak for us to give in and cry, to feel sad, to feel hurt, or confused. Some say that you should not give in to these emotions because it is giving the other person a position of control or even a winning situation. This is not a game in any way, nor is anyone giving any body else anything at all. I can break down and cry, I can break down and be upset, or I can even feel a little confused about a situation that has hurt me. We all have feelings and we should be able to express those feelings. To feel is not to be weak, it is to be real. To not express is to be weak because we are no longer being our selves, but instead we have a fake front just so no one can see us express.
I have been called names, I have been lied too, I have been cheated on, I have been hit, I have yelled at for the most ridiculous conversations, I have been deceived, I have been forgotten, and I have been taken advantage of. Yes, I hurt right now and yes, I am a wonderful human being, as many others are, but I will never do any of the disrespectful acts that we now read. The one thing I have not been called is Charlie. I am far from perfect, but I am still a great person.
Can some one just take that moment and say,,, "Charlie" I get it. Charlie, thank you. Charlie, how are you today?. Charlie, how is your family?. Charlie, I love you, and actually mean it. Yes, I cry, and I will continue to do so because I am just being real. I'm not perfect, I am not this man that is rich with money, I am not this person of material glamour, nor am I this man with diamonds in his pocket.
I am a man that loves his 6 year old daughter and loves to create music, film, and anything artistic. I am a man with old school morals. I am a man with respect that looks forward to the one day I can hold a woman's hand because she actually wants me. I am a man that is great-full for everything in my life.
I am Charlie
And I am expressing my self honestly.
So I cry, and proud of expressing.
