Are you struggling with expressing your feelings?
Are you in a relationship where you feel so much, but for as keenly as you feel, you cannot find the courage to say, “I love you”?
Do you keep going around in circles implying things, inquiring of the other person, trying to first understand what he or she feels before being honest?
Put a stop to that!
This is not the way to solve anything and you’re probably not only hurting yourself but the other person as well. In the world of feelings, there is no place for ego, love is all about giving unconditionally, and that doesn’t mean accepting any kind of behaviour, but just putting yourself out there with everything you are and everything you have to give, being the example the other person needs.
We live in a very wounded world and very often on the path of life we attract people that mirror our wounds, this is one of the ways the universe chooses to show us what we need to work on in this lifetime: the burdens that we shouldn’t carry around anymore.
But then again, we have free will, so it is always our choice if to listen to our inner voice, defeating our demons and expressing our feelings: trusting that the universe will bring us the best outcome or keep on hiding who we really are and what we really want suffering in silence.
Can everything go wrong the moment we accept, to be honest, and vulnerable?
Can the other person react in a hurtful manner?
Yes, it most definitely can because we are very different beings and most of the time the people we meet on our healing path are at different stages of their journey and they might not be ready for what we have to offer.
So, they might run, or they might laugh, or they might even humiliate us but whenever this happens, we must understand that it doesn’t have anything to do with us, but rather with their own inner wounds or with where they are at on their own life path.
A person that is already on the path of love and acceptance could never intentionally hurt anyone so if you end up being mistreated, you will know for sure either that this specific person is not ready for a journey together at this moment, either that it's just not the right person for you, therefore you will finally be free to move on with your life.
But do you have the courage to choose the freeing power of the truth to the deceiving illusion of the unknown?
Does he/she really love me? Does what I really feel matter? Does he/she feel the same way I do?
Most of the time finding out the answer is as easy as asking a question, but do you really want to know?
Are you ready to find out the truth?
Are you strong enough to prefer a harsh reality to a pink coloured illusion?
These are the real questions that you need to ask yourself.
I used to talk a lot about love, about how I’ve seen it, about how I felt it, about how I thought it should be, but never until the moment I’ve started saying "I love you" I have understood what those words really mean and how really embracing them could wash over all the parts of your life that need healing, transforming them completely.
