A few years ago when I first started on my journey of personal growth and self development, one of the things I learnt was to become much more self expressive. I learnt to honestly express my feelings – you cannot imagine how closed I was just a few years ago.
I used to have great difficulty in saying much – would you believe me if I said I used to be shy?!
Anyway, one of these seminars was all about telling people in your life how much they meant to you. That evening I happened to call my 13 year old nephew and just as we were finishing the conversation and I was about to hang up, I managed to stammer – “You know I love you don’t you?!”
His reply simply stunned me.
“Yes, I know you do, but you never say it”
My whole life changed in that split second. Tears streamed down, and a whole new world of openness and self expression swallowed me. No more Mr Closed!
I have never again felt shy or foolish when expressing myself. If I can do it, anyone can!
So who can you call or tell someone today just how much they mean to you?
What is stopping you?
What will no longer stop you?
Come from the heart, be really open, and just say whatever you have to say.
