Sharing emotions and troubling stories with family members or close friends can be difficult for many people. We are afraid of what others will think of us. Society tells us not to burden others with our troubles. That was my experience growing up.
Like many, I internalized them, ignored them when I needed to share them, and sometimes told them to inappropriate people. My moods, my outlook on day-to-day life, and my relationships were affected by this. Some swear they will take these feelings and stories to their grave. I almost did. Unfortunately, some do sooner than later.
People tell me their personal stories. I listen to them without judgment. In telling their stories, I use unique images. My Picture Tells A Story is about sharing your personal and emotional stories. Sharing feelings should be safe. These stories show they can.
I speak because I can, to anyone I trust enough to listen.
