I think we live in a society where it's promoted to repress feelings.
Last year i was reading fanfiction and there was this post where someone described how they think a character from Hero Academia would actually take pride in their emotions and don't play around once they grew up.
I took what they said literally because I like Bakugo and that same day i started telling people how i feel about them, what i like about them and i don't even bother to hide if i have a crush on someone.
The result to this was that my friends were speechless because these are out of the blue. If it's 2am and i want to tell you how i enjoy your presence because you're always going with the flow or i like your nurturing nature and i think you're just badass, i will.
However, they are also speechless because people expect others to just know how they feel about others. Vocalizing or showing your attachment should be more common.
In this (almost) 1 year of doing this regularly, i got to the conclusion that my friends squirm in a very adorable way because "what do i do now?" and nothing bad happened. My crush is speechless on a monthly basis but that isn't a tragedy.
Long story short: let your emotions live! Share them with others. Feelings are for you to feel first and if they're good emotions, why not share them? If they're not that nice, you can receive support for the moment.
I was taught as a kid to never show my feelings because it's a sign of weakness and guess what, it's tiring. It's a sign of weakness only when the opinion of others is affecting you but the more you enjoy your feelings, the less you care. The mountain isn't moved by the wind.
P.s. thank you to the blogger who wrote that headcanon/opinion about Bakugo ❤️
