Just last week I wanted to watch the sunset from my balcony and as I closed the sliding door a click followed, which was all I needed to hear before realizing that I was in crap. I had locked myself out.
Talks and negotiations later with the kids playing downstairs would release me from my predicament. I had luckily left the front door open so they walked in and saved me from myself but I had to part with some play station games and controllers for a few days.
Then I began to wonder how many times I had felt bad or just sorry for myself, and locked myself in thoughts, and a fowl mood.
Leaving my friends wondering what was wrong; just sulking and diving deeper into my self obsessed ways.
And over time I realized I could help myself by just talking to someone close like I did with the boys and in most cases the solutions come to you just by talking about issues (and knowing that there are many front doors willing to open for you). Other times you realize it was nothing and maybe you felt the way you did from something you read or saw which just got imprinted on your emotions.
Sometimes we just have to open up a little because there are really amazing people out there and let's hope that the time you spend being just a bit vulnerable will lead to better relationships and most especially a better version of yourself.
