Say The Words That Choke You Up

Do you hold back the words that choke you up?

When my deepest feelings try to get out, I usually hold back from saying everything in my heart because I’m afraid I’ll lose my composure.  I fear rejection.  Misunderstanding.  Failure.

So I just wait and settle for cheaper, safer words.

I always regret it.

I regret the missed opportunity to form a deeper bond through an inspired toast, special thanks, or the deep words of appreciation that I’m feeling.

It’s even worse when that person then moves, changes, or passes away without hearing the words meant for them. There’s no recycling these thoughts. They need to be shared.

You don’t always get a second chance to tell someone how you truly feel.

Be brave.  Say meaningful things.

Start today.

Have a meaningful night,
