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?

You can assume I have a love for fitness & a love for Wonderwoman -- both assumptions are correct.
I am an ACSM certified personal trainer of 8+ years -- I currently reside in Ohio and live a simplistic life at the age of 29. If I am not lifting, I am eating, sleeping, traveling, exploring, or movie watching. I recently moved during a pandemic, now I am focused on self care (self love), building a business of my own in personal training, becoming a professional blogger, starting a podcast and doing things that make me happy! I am a sister, daughter, and loyal friend --- I love everyone's dog and I am on a mission to pet as many dogs as possible everywhere I go! LOL.
My mission is to talk health (physical/mental), design programming, motivational speak, learn, grow, prosper, build others and make as many people smile as possible because I want nothing more than to be the change I seek in the world.

Oh, I definitely bottle the feelings up.
Any particular reason why?
Gender, I’d imagine, probably a bit of evolution… It’s what we do. If we’re raised properly, it’s what we’re taught, too.
So you believe it is a good thing to be raised to hold emotions in as a male counterpart? This is interesting.
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.
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.

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.
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.
