There is plenty of stuff we keep in our minds as we stroll through life everyday. These subdued emotions have the power to untangle a lot of issues made complicated by our own selves, by not saying what we truly want to.
Women are usually grilled for this phenomena. To never tell what they honestly mean or want and somehow expect the other person to understand the labyrinth in their mind.
But I think this can be applied a little more widely. In some or the other way, aren’t we all the same at times? Feeling something we are too hesitant to voice out and wanting the other person to just know. Or saying something we really want to but allowing some other contrary emotion like pride or hesitation getting in the way, failing us to speak what we wished to.
I’m sure everyone has gone through it.
The funny part is, even after realizing that confessing it to the person right there would save both of them a whole lot of drama, we still choose to play the silent game. I don’t know, maybe we enjoy it?
We’ve had this conversation in our mind where we’re about to blurt everything out but then it usually ends with this, “You know what? Leave it. It doesn’t matter.”
News flash: IT DOES.
You probably think that that girl already got a lot of compliments on her sweater so you resist adding more to the list.
Word Of Advice: YOU SHOULD.
Because at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if someone else lauded her. You did and that made her happy.
You want that someone to text you?
Why play the ‘I’ll ignore you unless you text first’ game? Go ahead, say ‘Hi!’ It’ll save a lot of time wouldn’t it?
As it is people are more surprised by kindness than malice. Plus, if it makes someone’s day, why keep it inside? Tell her, her hair looks wonderful today. Tell him he makes surprisingly great coffee! Tell them their voice is brilliant and together they sound sublime.
Try it out, who knows, someday someone might pop a compliment for you too!
Have a great weekend! 🙂
