Expressing how I feel is one of the sweetest thing I like about myself because truth be told, if I do not tell the other person they might not know how I feel. I did a poll on my WhatsApp status and I asked ‘If you like a person, do you tell them ? The answers I got was 50-50 because some people said they would tell the person and others said they would not tell them until the person figures out. Read below what I think.
It’s crazy that when we express how we feel towards others, they take us for granted. It’s one thing to feel something for someone and want to be with them (relationship-wise) and it is another thing to feel for them and not want to also be with them either ways, do not mix both. If you like a person and you want to be with them , it is okay to tell them rather than harbor your feelings. Nobody knows what is in your mind only if you speak about it. I understand that rejection hurts and as much as you try to shy away from it, you have to face the reality and Conquer your fear. It is easier said than done but you need the courage to do it. Sometimes we do not express how we feel because of the fear and when we find them with someone else it hurts and you regret why you did not express yourself. One of the verses in the Quran that scares me the most is Surah Al-Baqarah 2:216 ‘Perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah knows, while you know not. So if you express yourself and they do not feel the same way ? Do not feel bad as you are only human and you have feelings. it is okay to express it. Do not let anybody make you feel weak for expressing yourself.
Lastly, it is okay to tell your friends, family and loved ones how they mean to you. It is not until when they are dead, you start writing everything they mean to you and how much you love them. Remember that it is only when they are alive, they can read all of these things and it would put a smile on their face. Show them you love, care and cherish them.
We all have only one life to live, express yourself and stay true to your feelings. ❤️
