Breathing A Sigh of Relief

May 31, 2010 — 3 Comments

I have been going on for a couple of posts about my inability to talk about some stuff that has really been bothering me. Well, it is with a huge sigh of relief that I tell you that I was finally able to open up about these issues (the details of which I won’t bore you with). I should have done it sooner.

I still had to be dragged kicking and screaming into the conversation but once I was in it… I was so glad I was. Things are not magically fixed but I feel a hell of a lot better now that I’ve gotten a few things off my chest. Funny how that works huh?

So then this leads me back to the same question I have been having… “why do I find it so hard to talk about my feelings?”. I just don’t get it. Am I afraid of the reaction I will get? I don’t know. What I do know is that nothing but heartache comes from keeping your feelings in and that I absolutely need work in this area of myself. But who doesn’t need work right?

Today I have a sense of relief that I haven’t had in a long, long time. I need to remember this feeling the next time I think about stuffing my feelings. I’m grateful that I can spot these destructive habits in myself before they get way out of hand. I’m grateful for a lot of things these days.

  1. please share. what was the factor that made you open up?

    Please don’t say that bugger on TV Oprah or something you read. haha

  2. Hahahaha…NO. I don’t watch Oprah LOL.

    What made me open up? I’m dealing with some pretty serious martial problems and I was kind of forced into a conversation about it with my husband. Once I got going I just let everything out. So that’s that.

  3. You’re a real deep thnriek. Thanks for sharing.
