The art of expression. To be vocal or expressive about one’s feelings, decisions, thoughts, ideas.
If there is much content (happiness) gleaned from just experiencing it, why is there an urge to express it?
- Expectations in Reciprocation?
- A need to share?
Does it matter that the world/group/person outside of you need to know in the first place at all? More so, when there is no expectation on the expression?
I suppose the primary reason to express it is not so much as a selfish need to do so, but also to promote and spread the joy one experiences, hoping that the receiver may also experience a similar wave.
Perhaps it all ties in with the “giving” that hit me earlier, and I continue to do, just not record anymore.
On the flip side:
Maybe it’s really just the economy?
Like say for example: I may want to send a card expressing the feeling of “missing” a certain someone. The card costs $4:00, then there’s the postal charge and then the time spent in sending it out. See what I mean?
Economy somehow seems to fare in all the instances I thought of. That does make one a responsible citizen of the world at the very least. In times such as these, every action counts.
The only instance where this scenario ceases to make sense is when you are standing in the same physical space. Then we go back to our primary question:
Why express it at all in the first place?
