Dealing with feelings, tears and all.

In my most difficult times, I remember writing and writing and stopping for a moment to re-read what I had just written. I would slowly feel my eyes filling up and tears would start flowing.

My heart would be telling me what I was feeling through the words in my Journal. Having written my thoughts I now faced the truth. My words would reflect my feelings to me like if I was watching my heart’s expressions in a mirror.  And my tears… they were my way of starting to deal with my truth…

“Tears are words the heart can’t express.”

I am very happy to have picked up enough courage to dig deep and face my feelings, over several difficult periods of my life.

It may not be easy at times, I don’t pretend it is. But it is really worth it when you know you can finally start dealing with feelings, to work them out and find the path to happiness.

    Hey there
    Thank you so much for this post. I truly believe it will help and encourage many people.
    I can really relate to writing things down in order to get stuff out of my system. A good cry brings healing, and sometimes I have even howled like a baby because the grief and pain had been pushed down and buried for so long.
    Sometimes I type it all out on my computer, have a good cry, and press the delete button. The feeling of relief is amazing.
    So thanks again. I really enjoy reading your posts.
    Kind regards

      Sa, you have once again impressed me. Your honesty and depth is refreshing.
      I thank you for sharing your thoughts and story with me (and readers).
      I think what you have done and still do with writing, whether physically or through typing is indeed healing. Your words and mine will hopefully inspire others to try the same without being afraid of their feelings, without being ashamed to let the tears run for years of hiding those feelings deep inside.
      Thank you Sa. Continue on your path! We’ll keep in touch as our Journeys cross, over and over again…
