“My feelings are too loud for words and too shy for the world.” – Dejan Stojanovic
I saw an Instagram post the other day that said ‘Stop letting someone gaslight you into not having feelings.’ and dang. So I want to let you know that your feelings are okay. They are not something that you should have to apologize for or pretend that you do not have. If you have someone in your life that someone isn’t able to handle then you need to figure something out there because that is not okay.
Your feeling are valid and if you have to tiptoe around them in order to not disturb the peace that you believe is around you, or hide them so you don’t seem like too much you are compromising your well-being.
You are not unloveable they were just unable to love you.
If your feelings are being belittled or dismissed by people remember that they probably belittle and dismiss their own. It is important to surround yourself with people who do not shame or minimize you and your feelings into not having your own voice. The voice is yours and you should be free to speak it.
The best connections bring out your true self, they don’t hide it.
