Sometimes we have this strange idea that if we don’t acknowledge a problem out loud then it ceases to be a problem. But with ignoring the problem comes ignoring the solution, and the problem will always stay a problem. Do not bottle up those feelings because they’re hard to admit or deal with or because they are negative or distressing. Talk about it, let it out. It’s so simple yet so effective. Talking allows us to process our thoughts, to gain perspective, and to release toxic energy. It might be the only solution we need or it will be the best starting point. We do not need to battle everything alone.
