Open Your Mouth and Open Your Heart

13 Mar

I have always been one that believes in saying what’s on your mind, telling people how you feel, and doing it often. If someone’s doing something that makes you uncomfortable or hurts your feelings, let them know. If someone does or says something that makes you the happiest person on the planet, let them know. If someone makes your knees weak, makes your heart beat a little faster or makes you smile when you least feel like it, let them know. No matter how hard it is to do, how much your lips tremble saying it, and even if you’re the only one with those feelings, tell the other person. I’ve learned the hard way through the unexpected death of a good friend a few years ago that you never pass up the opportunity to tell those that are important to you how much they mean because truth, as hard as it can be to say, is better than not saying anything at all and wishing you had just swallowed your pride, your embarrassment and your fear of rejection and just said it. Don’t be an idiot, don’t be prideful, don’t be shallow and who cares if you’re the only one of you who feels that way, at least you had the balls to speak up, be honest and take a chance. It takes more strength to do that than it does to sit back and kick yourself later for not doing it (and it feels alot better too).
