Feelings are the language of the heart.
The feelings you share determine the quality of your relationship.
If you cannot tell your feelings, your relationship is empty, distant, a figment of your hope, too fragile to trust in dark times.
It is your love that motivates you to be together.
It is your pain that obliges you to share.
And it is the remembrance of your joy together that gives you the courage to risk being open.
A loving heart cannot bear isolation.
When you share your feelings, you are least alone.
The feelings you withhold also limit the love you can express.
If you conceal your hurt, you forget your love.
If you lie about your anger, you cannot tell if your love is real.
Your feelings have to be heard in order for them to be fully expressed.
Ask to be heard and speak plainly.
Share your painful feelings and be free to love once more.
I admit my pain and sorrow in order to know joy.
I believe in my strength in order to find it.
