I’d rather feel everything — joy, happiness, fear, sadness, grief — too intensely than feel nothing at all.
We use the term “brain-dead” with relative ease, but few talk of being “heart-dead.” In my dictionary, heart dead is synonymous for emotionally flat; an inability to feel.
While I realize it might be easier for others to live that way:
For me, emotional numbness is a grasping, ferociously tentacled black hole of Nothingness, threatening the perfect equilibrium I’ve cultivated within the galaxy of My Heart.
Good for you.
I prefer my heart beating, too. ❤️
