I was lucky enough to have lunch with my hubby today. He finished work early and I, as usual, was hard at work in my home office.
He brought us home a lunch of chicken and salad, and we sat at the table and ate lunch together.
Awwww…. I hear you all say, or maybe you just threw up in your mouth.
But as we ate, I asked him – ‘What should I write about today?’
His response was, ‘What about having lunch with your husband? You know, the little things.’
And that got me thinking.
Do you talk to anyone?
Have you told anyone how you are feeling? Have you just let it all out? Have you unloaded yet?
My hubby is lucky enough to listen to everything from me. Yes that’s right – L.U.C.K.Y.
(Sorry, that was just in case he reads this post today…)
Honestly though, if you don’t talk about how you are feeling, your troubles will continue to fester in your mind, and with every moment you spend thinking about it, the problem gets bigger and bigger.
Speaking up about your worries and anxieties helps alleviate the pain. Having someone listen to you can help you release some of your anxiety. They can be a sounding board or even the reality check you need to help you see a different perspective.
Our monsters in our head can really get the better of us. Especially, if we don’t let them out.
I wasn’t always so good at talking about me. It is genuinely one of the harder things to admit. Though I know it isn’t a weakness in me. It is a part of me. My Anxiety. We have learnt to live together.
And I have given it a voice. So now it doesn’t shout as loud, well at least not all the time.
