Writing frees my soul and my heart. My words flow freely when I write as opposed to when I speak sometimes. It’s easier for me to tell you how I feel through a letter or blog post then to actually speak aloud for I often feel I am misunderstood when I speak, especially when it’s a hard subject or a disagreement.
Sometimes when we are in a conversation, we have a hard time listening to the other person entirely. A thought may jump into our heads while they are speaking and we may concentrate on what we are planning on saying about that to them, instead of listening to everything the other person is saying. I know it’s happened to me before and I guess it’s a natural reaction at times.
Here, I feel like I can be me. The true me. The one who doesn’t always have to watch where she’s walking on the path of conversation for sometimes in conversations we walk a mine field, carefully, hoping not to detonate a land mind that will start a disagreement. Do you feel that way sometimes?
