With the exception of speaking to a counselor, a nurse, or a doctor, speaking about my feelings to anyone else can be really hard. And for my friends reading this, who I have spoken to on either a verbal, or written level, although we may have talked about some sensitive stuff, that may seem as though I find it easy. It isn’t.
I have written about how I have felt here at times in posts. The most revealing and only deep revealing was when I first started writing my blog I think and more so when I shared my last two counseling sessions when I went in with one thing and, then came out with another and it was agreed that talking about that was needed, but not rushed, that was everything from my childhood. Some of which I did not even realise how it was affecting my present.
Since then, I have shared other emotions, but only scratching the surface type level.
I read another blogger’s post about how he was feeling and I could relate to what he was saying, even though our situations are different. So I left a comment there, which was gratefully appreciated, knowing it wasn’t just him. He wrote the post to raise awareness and I have been thinking since reading his post that it’s about time I write about my own and air it soon.
Also with how I currently feel after this weekend, or more Sunday’s event with my mum, means I need to write a separate post on how I feel about that. So look out for two separate posts.
In the meantime, do you find it a struggle to express your feels? Whether it being finding the right words and writing a blog post, or verbally talking about it?
Do you find counselor’s, nurse, doctors, etc more easier, than friends, or family?
Are there a couple of friends you feel you can share your feelings, more than others?
