it’s hard but just talk to someone
‘Aaron why are you so closed off?’, ‘Just talk to me’, ‘Tell me what you’re thinking, what’s on your mind?’ Interestingly, I’m not one of the most open people and I find it really difficult to express my emotions and tell someone how I really feel. From past experiences, I’ve been hurt a lot by being so open that I learnt to keep things to myself. Whatever I was going through, all I wanted to do is scream aloud how much I needed help and guidance however I simply suffered alone. I think that; why do I need to depend on or need someone else to talk to, surely that makes me weak and I should be able to go through it by myself. Wrong.
Talking to someone about how you feel and what you’re going through is so alleviating and powerful. Deep conversations with the right people are priceless. I have only recently decided that I want to be able to talk to someone when I’m feeling low or need advice as well as when I want to generally catch up or have a laugh. I know it’s going to be hard, but this is a start. Do not only talk to someone when you need to however also be able to listen and be there for them; that is what makes you really special.
