It takes a lot of courage to put myself out there. It’s just not my natural instinct to tell the world, “Hey! This is how I feel.”
As a result, I’ve definitely suppressed a lot of feelings.
I’ve questioned myself countless times…
Why didn’t I just I say how I feel?
Why did I hold back?
No matter how well you know a person, you’ll never truly know how they feel, unless they communicate it.
Whether it may be feelings of heartbreak, a sudden loss, a major life change, there’s strength in acknowledging your feelings as they arise.
Especially at the state of the world now, I’d be lying If I hadn’t experienced bouts of anxiety, loneliness, and fear in these last 6 months.
With that being said, I recently signed up for counseling. I walked away from the session feeling relieved. There is a definitely a sense of vulnerability, but to me it provided guidance in a way that I didn’t think I needed.
