It has always been hard for me to tell people how I feel about them. I am a very honest and upfront person, however when it comes down to expressing my love to someone there has always been something that held me back. I know that there is many people out there that can relate. The closer I am to someone, like my mother, my husband or my sister the harder it is to speak my love out loud.
Why is that? Why do we hold back? Is it because
we are afraid of revealing too much of ourselves fearing vulnerability? Or is it that this love we feel is so strong and overwhelming that the mere thought of speaking it, letting it out, tears you up inside and makes you want to cry your eyes out? But what is wrong with that?! Why can’t we just let it go, let it stream forth, wash over us like a powerful waterfall of healing energy? We waste so much valuable time and energy hiding, when it could be so much easier to just be who we are instead. So many missed opportunities, so many hours wasted thinking what if, so many moments gone by when a simple hug could have opened the door to inner peace!
I tell you I am done with holding back! I have held back for too long, for too many lifes. I want to love with all my being even if it hurts. Tell your mums, tell your sisters and brothers, your boyfriends and husbands, friends and family how you feel. Don’t be afraid to show all of you. They deserve to see who you truly are – A beautiful person inside and out! YOU deserve to BE who you truly are! Allow them to love you and allow yourself to love them back with all you have.
Say it – Feel it – Show it – and most of all - Live it! Don’t miss your chance!
