We, as a society, really have no idea how *suffocated* people are in their emotions. Most people have *nobody* to express themselves entirely to. Everyone is holding back their *vulnerabilities* to maintain the *social image* of a confident and happy person.
Heart-to-heart conversations have become *rare, artificial and shallow*. Most hearts are filled with *empty defences*.
Most people can’t even talk to their *life-partners openly* for the fear of being judged or rejected. Emotions await just a release. Social images make sure that weakness is not glorified.
Children have *bottled up* stress. Young people suffer from anxiety and depression.
It is just lack of social support. It is *lack of non-judgmental* friendships. It is a result of *fast and busy lives* where nobody has time to just sit and watch someone cry.
It is a result of *instant and impatient lifestyle* practices, that *emotions have started feeling like a waste of time*.
Our forefathers talked to each other. Because talking helps…..
The *face-to-face* type talking, the *just-listen-to-me* type talking, the *hold-my-hand-and-let-me-cry* type talking, the *sit-next-to-me-and-listen-to-my-silence* type talking… the talking where *persons can be themselves and say anything they feel without the fear of any judgement or loss or rejection*.
Today, we don’t like that type of talking! In fact we *avoid people*. Naturally, it has led to mental illnesses…. which are becoming an epidemic.
There is not much we can do but we can offer *listening* !
It is extremely important to have those heart-to-heart conversations where you can express yourself without being judged.
It can add years to your life and more importantly life to your years.
Let’s let people talk without any fear. Let’s create conversations.
*Let’s Start Talking Again*.
