I am speaking from experience that by sharing our issues or problems always and all the ways makes us feel better; it also helps us in finding solutions as well as in healing.
I did lose many people by withdrawing during the tough times in my life because of pretending to be brave and happy- though I desperately needed help and a shoulder to lean on.
Now when I look back, I feel I should have trusted the positive response from my near ones. Bad experiences from couple of toxic relationships doesn’t mean that we put everybody in the same bracket.
I am sure there are many sweet souls who would love to help you and even if they can’t, at least they will try to console you and help you in finding solutions or resources.
Since the time, I started opening my heart to my soul connections; I have started experiencing a lot of love, care and strength. Your soul connections won’t ever make you feel small or make you feel that you are a burden. They will be the wind beneath your wings. ~Latika Teotia
