Do they ever cross your mind? Words like should have, could have, would have?
Thoughts and prayers, xoxo, all my love; words that are so easily expressed whenever we think about a person or wish them all the best. On a postcard, in a text message or whenever Facebook reminds us of a memorable day. But are we aware of the real effect our words have on people? And does the person that receives them, truly understands what we meant to say?
Being sensitive and feeling your emotions is powerful and positive. But for centuries we’re thinking quite the opposite. We rather hide what we're feeling. We think feeling emotions makes us weak and vulnerable and that being sensitive is something only for women. We’ve been wrong all this time. By accepting and dealing with our difficult emotions we will found a solution to our problems.
More and more I see women and men opening up and talking about their feelings.

When you’re burned out or depressed you are broken on the inside. Then it hurts inside your body. It is an emotional pain and it needs the same amount of time to heal.
