I am an effective communicator. I talk to people for a living and I take great pride in being able to convey information clearly and simply so that anyone can understand. However, I have discovered a boundary; I have no problem with conversation unless deep emotions are involved.
If I am deeply saddened or anxious or angry or if I want to let someone know how they make me feel, it is a hard thing to do. I am not sure why that is. It makes you vulnerable for sure but I also think I overanalyze things at times. In short, I get in my own way.
That ends today. I reached out to someone who I really wanted to tell how much they mean to me. It was hard getting started but I felt so much better once I said what I needed to say. I am not sure what the next steps will be but life is too short to hold back expressing deep emotions. Live freely.
