i used to be afraid of saying what i wanted. of speaking my mind. of sharing my emotions and feelings. i was terrible at making decisions, terrified of potentially making the wrong call. the thought of somehow fucking up, displeasing others, the thought of possible regret was overwhelming. it was in these moments that i started to reflect on those feelings. what was the root cause? i’d pinpoint insecurity, fear of rejection (in all forms), and not knowing myself enough to speak to what i wanted or how i felt with confidence and self-respect. taking the time with myself and learning to do so has opened so many doors in so many aspects of my life. communication is everything.
so with that: don’t be afraid to ask for the things you want and need. don’t be afraid to speak your mind, to speak to your emotions. don’t overthink. know that if you speak from the heart, those who matter will hear you. you deserve to be listened to.
today set the intention to tell someone something from the heart. be it a friend, lover, or yourself 🥰 we all deserve a lil luv
