I grew up being afraid of expressing my feelings in words as no one around me in my cutlure encouraged it. I am still learning to open up and I find this to be incredibly challenging. It is a long-long journey. But I am committed to walk it as long as it takes.
I'm learning the same thing! Being vulnerable is not an easy feat! But it's so beneficial not only for us but those who are experiencing similar things. It's a way of saying, "It's okay, you're not alone."
Thank you for sharing this and for always being so caring, love! So glad I've found you here!
