My fear...

Its very difficult to express yourself when there is a fear. And mostly they are bound to happen together only.

I always wonder, why I am not able to fully express how I feel, even to my loved ones. There can be two possibilities, first, I love them and do not want to hurt then. Second, I think I am not strong enough to face rejection. But there might be another reasons. I don't feel safe. I am afraid of being misunderstood. I fear of getting ignored. And whatever the reason is, it hurts. But what hurts the most it keeping it all to myself. But it is not easy to let things go, is it??
