These four walls.....or how ever many you have

We as people feel the need to guard our feelings. I understand this school of thought, but to me, it is much better to tell people how you feel, or to be yourself. Be yourself all seconds of every day.

That is why I write on this; because I know I am not the only one, and that maybe someone I care about can take away from this a little morsel of inspiration or information that they can use to make themselves better. But would I be able to get to know someone or help them if I didn't open up? No, I would not!!! If I care about someone, I want to get to know them, good or bad. I want to know their inner-feelings. Their hopes, dreams, hardships, likes, dislikes, whatever those may be. You cannot get to know someone or allow someone to know you by keeping your feelings guarded from them.

Now I am not saying that you should open up to everyone you meet. But if your friends, boyfriend/girlfriend or family have no idea of where you are coming from, you cannot expect them to understand and help you. Or you cannot expect to have a fulfilling relationship.

Lately, I have had a big-time slap in the face when it comes to feelings. I have learned that I don't have time for someone that doesn't want to at least trust me. I take pride in the fact that I can be trusted. Please, seek out those that you trust and confide in them. Who else can you trust?

One of the things I find so fascinating about people is their ability to pretend to be someone they aren't in order to have a relationship. I ask, why in the world would you want to have a relationship with someone who doesn't even know the real you? Say what you mean and mean what you say.

Happy to see you writing again! I mean that!
