Over the past few weeks I have been having some really authentic conversations with the people closest to me. The feeling of connection and closeness generated from sharing intimate feelings really contributes to my well being. One thing that struck me while talking to some of these people was that they were sharing feelings they didn’t share with anyone – they felt that the feelings were so unpleasant and so negative they would rather have kept them to themselves and not expressed it. But by expressing them, we were able to uncover hidden meanings behind their feelings. I was surprised that they didn’t want to share these feelings but then it got me thinking – what negative feelings am I hiding – unafraid to share? And am I going to be brave enough to do something about them?
