Whats stopping u from expressing your love to your loved ones?
There’s a good reason for me to write this blog today, it’s because in many ways I do express a lot but when it comes to people I cannot express how I feel about them so it is not known to them, sometimes it leads to misunderstandings. It’s mostly because of our cultural backgrounds where we are not encouraged to express ourselves freely. I also noticed its difficult to many parents to express their love to their own children. This can sometimes lead to broken relations; those missing links in these relations are due to lack of communication and expression of their true feelings.
When my father fell ill a few years back, I was frightened of loosing him. The thought of not finding him around made me think about how important it is to let him know, how much he means to me, I told him he had done his best raising us and taking care of his family and how much I love him, he was so happy to hear that and by God’s grace he recovered fast, in a way it helped me learn not to take any loved one for granted, their love and presence is the most valuable gift.
A person who expresses oneself is truly blessed as he creates more space for contentment than regrets. With the satisfaction of expressing themselves without fear in a good way they become more relieved, confident, and reliant on how they feel.
Unexpressed and suppressed emotions get bottled up leading to many problems both physical as well as physiological issues. Out of fear and anxiety or ego, many people cannot express themselves well. They may think positively but cannot express the same in words or actions. Most people misunderstand their non- expression and silence as arrogance or ignorance.
Learning to understand your own feelings for others is the first step. Next is to express them right away because time doesn’t wait till you decide to express, it does it’s job finely chopping of your opportunities as it passes. Let every loved one know how much you love them, once you open that door they will also start expressing their love to you. There’s a great mutual benefit hidden in taking that first step. If some people didn’t receive your expression positively please don’t be discouraged to do so with others. Be happy that you expressed freely and got relieved, those who couldn’t receive you positively at first will slowly learn its importance too.
Open up now and start expressing before it’s too late. If any of you had similar realizations and are trying your best please comment below..
