I believe that communication is very important between family members as well as friends. However, the problem in my case is that my family members mostly do not share what's in their hearts readily and I sometimes will not share something because I don't want to invite criticisms from them or if I know it will get someone else into unnecessary trouble.

we think we are protecting them if we dont tell how we feel then when hurts multiply we have the memory of each one because we didnt release them

Communication is the heart of relationships and feelings are at the heart of effective communication. When we are able to communicate at the feeling level, we can eliminate much of the misunderstandings that occur in most relationships. Quality of life can be greatly improved through the experience and expression of feelings. Sharinf feelings of warmth is a powerful tool in building and maintaining friendship. However, many people have trouble verbalizing their feelings. They should learn to express.

For my personal point of view, It is very vital to express our feelings to all our loved ones and to our dear friends. We are not the one holding our time in this world, there are things in life we sometimes regret because we was not able to say it and in was too late. Being transparent and honest with our love ones and with our very own self makes us a better individual and enjoy a healthy relationship.

It is very important to express our feelings to our loved ones, friends and family. Each of us is born with distinct tastes and sensitivity. Each of us reacts to the same situation in multiple ways. Each of us have our own expectations of other people and our loved ones. If we will not express our feelings or our opinion then there will be a big communication gap and the people whom we want to understand our feelings will never be able to unnderstand us. How can they if we dont express.Moreover it is essential that there is clarity on common issues that concern our circle of relations.

You have to tell them. It is always healthy in a relationship to express what you are feeling, your wants and dont's. It'll strengthen up a relationship. But if you always keep it in your heart, your whole personality is a mess, you won't look sexy anymore, everythings just go sagged. EVerything you want, SAY IT. Let them know that things hurts when they do bad. And they will understand you.

It always best to be honest and to tell of hurts before they grow large
