We all need the space to communicate. To openly and healthily express ourselves.
There are many these days who feel as though they haven’t adequately been loved, celebrated or supported, and therefore to be so,
they work to make themselves lovable; often by suppressing their own needs and feelings.
Examples of this are always being nice and agreeable, and taking care of others needs at the expense of themselves.
When people don’t have support and don’t have the freedom express how they feel, they will suppress their feelings. This will have a grave impact on them emotionally and psychologically.
Do you ever think about the person who’s always there or available for you? Are you ever there for them when they need it? What about the person who goes out of their way to spread love for others?
Do you ever think about what they’re going through?
People these days have a nasty habit of only being willing to acknowledge positive emotions and expressions from others.
The complexities of human nature and nuanced discussion often alludes them, and they are left with a people they can’t or refuse to relate to.
And you cannot teach or truly care for a person you are unable or unwilling to relate to.
So I’m challenging everyone to go outside of their comfort zone and check in on someone you care for every once in a while.
It won’t kill you to pick up the phone and ask “how are you?” Stop quoting scripture, and assuming everything is alright and actually talk to them.
Ask them about their heart and listen to what they have to say. Imagine what could happen if we all gave people the space to honestly communicate.
