The unknowing. When you are led into a guessing game, that you allow yourself to be in. It’s exhausting, as the constant firing of a piston without sparking.
On the hook. Wriggling.
We all have the things that unsettle us. The questions that have no answers, or maybe not the answers we want.
I find that this wriggling is a low level of stress that we all share. These unsure micro-moments are what lead to macro-moments, mountains out of molehills.
To ask a question sometimes is to get in return a vague sentence of pronouns without specifics. Or one word. The omission of facts and information is still not the truth.
Directness can sometimes be seen as being pushy or bossy. But I think the envelope needs to be opened; our boundaries pushed some.
Truth is so important to be happy. Wasting time, energy and stress on the unknown is unhealthy. There are so many unknowns in this world, what can be known, should be. Be a giver of information, not a holder. No one likes being an interrogator.
When you share and communicate it is magic and what every relationship needs whether its eat, pray, love, work, play, gov.
Tis everyday work, when we share, we find we are not alone.
Why is vulnerability and honesty so very hard?
Give the answers.
If you like this share it with your friends and hold that clap button down — hard.
