Why is it when you open up your thoughts to people you feel ....vulnerable....stripped naked....insecure.
When I was a girl my mother used to tell me that if I kept it all inside that one day it would cause me ulcers or some other equally bad thing. I was that run-to-my-room-to-cry child. I would stand there and act like nothing bothered me until I could get to a safe place where no one would see me and then I would quietly cry. It was not for show.
My throat would hurt like a huge lump was there. And it would interfere with swallowing. The stronger the hurt the harder that lump in my throat felt.
What was that lump? I don't feel that anymore.
Who do you share your deepest hurts with?
Do you allow anyone to really know your deepest, most private hurts?
