Right in the Feels

It is almost crazy how conversations about feelings almost always revolve around the fact that people are afraid of expressing them. About how we are so good at keeping them from everyone we should be sharing them with. 

What we are missing though is the fact that most of the time, it is not the fear of expressing that haunts us. We struggle in letting ourselves feel what we need to feel. It might be because we are never too sure if what makes our heart skip, our skin crawl, our heads pound are valid and real. And how do we express something we can’t wrap our understanding with?
