Feelings..................................I wish there were
windows to my soul, so that you could see some of my feelings. Wouldn't it be
great if people could see our feelings? All we'd have to do is walk into a room
and someone could say, " I see you're feeling sad right now. Let me help
you." Many of us grew up expecting people to be mind readers. Without
voicing our feelings or asking for help, we believed people should be able to
see how we felt. When they didn't, we usually became angry, hurt, or depressed.
Until someone pointed this out to us, we never recognized how silent we were
and how great our expectations were of others.
Unless we voice our feelings, they will never be heard. And
unless we ask for help, we will never get assistance. The people in our lives
have ears to listen and arms to hold us- if we choose to open the windows to
our soul. I can tell someone how I feel. I can ask for help if I need it. If
those around me seem to be upset, I can be there for them but I will not try to
be mind reader
