You have something major going on in your life. People close to you can see that this is a difficult time for you. But you can tell that they are waiting. They are waiting for you to return to their sense of normal. To appease those folks, you put on your mask. Your, everything is better, and don’t worry about me, mask. You decide to make those around you feel comfortable instead of sharing your story.
Here is my question to you, is the return to normal real or false? Are your true feelings bottled up because you are upset, scared, angry or too tired to share? Or are you certain that if you did open up to reveal how you truly feel, the outcome would be isolation? The navigation of the ins and outs of sharing your feelings can feel tricky.
You are not alone with this dilemma. Sharing your experiences demands a leap of faith. While your circumstances are unique, I do know this, bottling up how you truly feel may lead to deeper suffering. By no means am I telling you to share your life story with the world, but I am asking you to talk to someone. If you feel that no one in your circle will listen or understand, then turn towards a group, or team, or association whose sole goal is to listen and to help.
I want you to find your peace, and I recognize that the path to reach your destination will be challenging. The number of hurdles, which are scattered along my path, are too numerous to mention. Give yourself the chance for a life filled with hope, it is worth the commitment.
