I did a survey, one day ago. A post I saw on Twitter.
‘I need help’ and ‘I love you’ were the most replies. ‘I’m hurting’ came really close too and ‘I apologize’ had the least.
But it all comes down to our feelings I guess.
We hide our true feelings behind masks and now behind the screens of our devices.
I guess what we fear the most is the reply to whatever we say.
We fear the scrutiny that society and now social media that comes with admitting what we feel.
I am human so I feel.
I personally, might be among the people who hardly admit when they need help.
I’d rather get lost and wander in a new town for hours for what was meant to be a 10 minute errand. (Trust me it happened)
I’d rather retreat in my shell and put a cap on anything negative that I feel than talking about it.
I’d rather drag myself to the hospital alone than worry anybody when I’m sick.
I realize it’s wrong.
We have friends and family for this reason and many more.
When we’re down, talk to somebody.
When you love, admit it
When you hurt, seek help
When we wrong, ask for forgiveness.
When we’re lost, ask for directions
We are not lonely islands drifting in the sea
Nor are we lone cacti in the desert
We are humans and so we feel
And others have felt what we feel
They can help
I realize admitting one’s feelings on something may go wrong
But what if goes right?
What if it does work out?
What if it all falls into place?
From today onwards, I look forward to saying what I feel in hopes it helps one admit theirs.
Love, care and kindness are too precious for one to just hold on to alone. Spread the feelings.
You are not a pre-programmed robot trained to eat, work, sleep and wake.
Love in the moment with joy and happiness.
Trust in a Higher Power looking after you and paving the way for you.
I feel relieved as I type this out.
I love you. ❤
