"Communication"...the meaning of this word has been taught to us in more ways than one right since we were born perhaps... haha ! ironically so, it is one of the most difficult and complicated things..or not ??
Why is it that we hesitate to communicate?.. Why is it so difficult to tell someone or show someone what we feel?.. Why is it such a ginormous task? Why does it take the life out of us ? Why is it easier to suppress than to explain, illustrate, show?
Perhaps, we think too hard about the consequences, we are presumptuous of reactions, we are judgmental, inflexible and rigid, we are afraid about how we may feel after..
But, its just the above-mentioned things we need to get over..once we overcome our fear of what reaction we may get and the bigger fear of how we may feel and deal after the said reaction, we will be successful in being able to set ourselves free...
Communication is therapeutic and I am not even exaggerating :) .. get over the barriers and communicate !.. Go talk, express, emote !! ..talk to the friend you are having "cold vibes" with, tell that person what you really, actually think and have been keeping inside you just because you are scared, express your appreciation, likewise express your grief and sometimes you don't even need to talk, that one hug or just holding of a hand can communicate more than words would ever..
It is not important what the reaction will be, communication merely from your end will make you feel like a burden has been lifted from your shoulders, that light feeling where at least you have done your bit..you are at peace with your inner self !
A major cause of broken or damaged relationships which could have been beautiful, cause for many of us being emotionally bogged down, unhappy, depressed, is, lack of communication;
If you feel you can't talk; then write, mail, scribble, cry, sob, hug..just get it out of your system and feel that feeling of being light, releasing your emotions and letting go..the idea is that if you communicate, there will never be regret !!
Do try this..speak your heart out, express, show your emotions, your feelings..feel light and feel alive !!
