Foot Down

‘Stac you need to tell people how you feel, I can see that you just bury it inside…you are just hurting yourself in the end’ my sister says as we lay on the bed chatting.

I have this dilemma within myself to try and be positive all the time, but I struggle to find the line to be assertive in personal relationships.  I guess we are all trying to find a balance.  But if we are hurting ourselves by internalizing pain, it helps no one and is inefficient use of our energy.

After 30 years on this earth I have finally decided to put my foot down and allow my hurt feelings to be known.  In the end I am much better for it. I have cleaned under my rug, but I need to be alert enough to sweep away new dirt that surfaces in time.
