I've never had a hard time telling people how I feel. I feel the emotion, and I relay the information. I know the moment the emotion happens, I know WHY and I know HOW it's affected me. What happens to people that they completely tune out those feelings?
Feel. Think. Speak. Connect. Four actions that can either make a relationship/friendship/any damn ship, flourish or wilt, rapidly.
When we're children the platform unto which we're allowed to communicate it a VITAL one, if there isn't one, you're basically fucked. And so are your children. Were your parents the kind that didn't approve of "extreme" emotion, either good or bad? Was communicating such a "non-option" that you just STOPPED?
I don't understand when we people don't feel SAFE to feel differently, to argue opinions, to have moments of irrationality. To be EVEN. STEADY. Calculated. PASSIVE. Are all emotions that frankly, aren't HUMAN, they aren't feeling in "real time."
When we interact with people we have to ALLOW them to feel. and to feel DIFFERENTLY. To feel the highs, the lows, the frustration, anxiety- and allow them to vocalize it, so they can worth through, rather than bottle the emotion so deep that by the time they blow, they don't even know the reason.
I don't do passive aggressive. I think it makes you look like a pansy bitch child. Own your emotions, own your thoughts and don't be fucking afraid to express them. The people that love you will respect your more for it.
We're people, with the most incredible rainbow of feeling-and an innumerable amount of words that we can use to EXPRESS them. Take people for where they are, it's ok if you are feeling frustrated, neglected, shitty, or lost- but speak up...don't wreak more havoc on your life by letting emotions that would pass normally, become an issue because you can't allow the progression to happen.
SAY WHAT YOU MEAN. If you haven't done it EVER BEFORE, start now.
DO YOU SAY WHAT YOU MEAN?
