How To Talk About Feelings

Holding onto certain fears can prevent you from talking about how you feel.
Fears such as: getting hurt, being ‘discovered’, or thought of as sick or weird. I had all of those.

One of the scariest feelings I hid at all costs during my teenage years were fantasies of extreme violence.

Who would tell their friends, teachers, or family such things? You’d be quarantined socially, right?

Here’s the thing about your fears: You can’t listen to them, you have to listen to yourself.

They feel like warning signals, except, they’re really more like ‘getting warmer’ in hot & cold.

The stronger the fear, the more you must move towards it.

That’s the path you must take towards growth.

If you’re afraid to talk about something, that’s exactly what you need to do to make it go away.
