Like a flower bud that got watered enough with every tear dropped, an iced heart may melt with love.
Theme: On realization of the repressed emotions.
Challenge: Find a way to connect the two metaphoric ideas of those emotions: a watered flower blooming and an iced heart melting.
Solutions: Show the former idea as the process, and the latter idea as the outcome.
People often say that I’m suppressing my emotions, and encourage me to ask for help more often. Though I knew my tendency of being emotionally flat in conversations, I didn’t realize how I wasn’t aware of the existence of emotions that I have never felt, until some point in my life.
I wasn’t intentionally doing it but was simply dismissing my feelings. As a loner type person, sometimes I was not aware of others’ feelings as well, due to the lack of experience with those emotions.
Who can imagine the taste of food which has never been eaten?
At the point where I finally developed a skill of acting empathetic for other people, and increased my capacity of receiving other people’s kindness, I was surprised how I was unaware of the massive variety of emotions, and the fact that it was more of repression rather than suppression. I also found the importance of wholehearted communication with others is crucial in order to experience those never-felt emotions.
I might not be naturally good at reading people, but now I know that this skill can be improved by the amount of quality time with others.
How many unknown emotions can we activate in our limited lifetime?
