validating our emotions,
recognizing them as they are,
where they came from,
what they represent
and how they make us feel
fills the spaces between us
with softspoken kinship .
how we feel is not who we are.
what we are feeling is not who we are.
sharing how we feel
validates our commonalities,
and allows us to seek a deeper understanding of who we are.
our emotions are not who we are,
but perhaps they are the language needed to unlock
the mysteries of the word of God.
confessions.....leading to the spaces between us.
perhaps pain and fear and anguish have an underlying reason for burdening our minds and hearts. Could it be that these deep wounds we carry may somehow direct us to unravelling a good mystery?
Can we take the risk to fill the empty spaces between us with how we really feel?
The biggest secrets we withhold are nestled in the folds of our emotions.
Perhaps that's why we hesitate to share them.
We have learned to keep secrets too well for fear of being rejected.
We have learned not to trust that we will be accepted unconditionally
despite how we feel.
just wondering about this tonight..............i guess you could say i'm feeling a wee bit curious and wary as to whether or not i should share some secrets?
