Sharing my feelings

As long as I can put words to the way I feel, it’s free and open to the public. Unfortunately, living that way can frustrating because so many people are scared to share their own feelings.

Why would I continue to be so honest and care free with my thoughts and feelings knowing it leaves me vulnerable?

First, I know that sharing my feelings will give others the strength to share their own. Or help others to know they’re not alone in their own experiences.

Second, it helps me to have and set realistic expectations because over time expressing myself helps me learn what things bother me and what things make me smile.

And last but not least, when I’m finally around groups people who share their thoughts and feelings without fear, it’s so liberating for me. Makes me want to provide that space for people as well.

Why do you share your feelings or why don’t you?

  1. I do share my feelings, but sometimes I wonder if I’m too frank. “Second, it helps me to have and set realistic expectations because over time expressing myself helps me learn what things bother me and what things make me smile.” – If only I had such insight. I think I do, but I never put it to practice lol.

    1. It’s not easy to share feelings freely and then grow from them. It takes mindfulness and self awareness and self love. I forget sometimes to analyze my own words or even my own art to see what’s going on deeper than the surface.
