I Adore People Who Are Not Afraid to Share Their True Feelings

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,614 People

    I'm honest for the most part,

    but things/situations when I don't know how to say, I hide them, like if I have a crush on a girl, I avoid her. How do I let someone know I have a crush on someone, without them judging me and saying something like "get a life, creep!" or "get the **** away from me, you creep...

    We live in a society

    where people feel like they have to bottle up their feelings and it's not good. The lack of empathy is awful.

    It's really difficult thing to do,especially one-on-one.I realize that it's just as difficult for others as it is for me.It isn't that they aren't afraid to share their true feelings,I think everyone is afraid,it's that they do it even with the existence of that fear...  ...

    I wish more people would.

    So many people walk through life saying what they think they should, or what is pc, or what is acceptable. It is so much easier to deal with a person who says what they are really feeling. Even if it hurts. At least you know the truth. You can work with truth.

    The Few, the Proud - the Transparent

    It's impossible if not extremely difficult to not adore people who can't be anything short of their true emotional selves. I have such an admiration for that. I don't want someone who sees me as an optional friend or a possible lover, I want someone who feels me and feels for me...

    Well adoring is kind of the wrong word

    for me...because most of the time when I do share... people either take and twist what I say into something they may feel with the words I use is directed at their own life. This can cause me to have to explain myself even more, which never really ends very adorably..lol My son...

    so it's usually helpful to have people be candid and truthful about their feelings. Sarcasm is lost on me in these instances so ya either be up front and let me know what you are feeling or I'm gonna be clueless. I don't do hints. And don't even start with the "well, you ought...

    On a nice sunny day, You just wanna lay down

    with eyes closed on a field of green grass and flowers, the gentle breeze of the air, brushing all over your body. Hoping that someone will pass by, pick you up like you're a precious stone, keep you forever and take you anywhere they go.

    We are not emotionless rocks.

    We are meant to laugh, cry, talk, and express ourselves. It is perfectly acceptable to wear our hearts on our sleeves whenever we deem it necessary. Anyone you can't bare your soul to has no place in your life. If you can't be your most authentic self with anyone, send them...

    Most people live in a shell of their own

    Fighting My Own Demons The greatest enemy is

    !! I rather know how you really feel than what you think I want to hear. Honesty is fundamental to any relationship or friendship. If you don't want to hurt someone I understand, but I personally think the truth is better.
