Sometimes we're not as open as we would like to be. Fear of judgment. Fear of rejection.
For me, I realized I had the opportunity to be more open when I stopped worrying about how people around me might receive what I had to say. So many times we're afraid to speak with people. Tell them what's really happening, what's really going on.
As someone who is a blogger, shares online, I share quite a bit. Few people really know me though. Ever fewer are within the inner sanctuary of my life who know me better than I may know myself. They can anticipate things for me when I may not be able to do so for myself. It's a blessing to have those people close and within my reach.
But who can you open up to? Who can you be fully yourself with? Do you feel others can be fully themselves with you?
