Becoming Satisfied

So.. I don't usually blog about my life personally. I'm more of a... write poems and thoughts cryptically and hide the meaning deep down and maybe one day the person it was written for will realize that it was about them and honestly I don't know where it would go from there but that's typically the way I post things.

It's not exactly that way anymore.

More and more I feel like just writing what I'm thinking and feeling outright. A big thing that I've started to realize this year is that you have to say what you need to say, you can't hide it and hope that other people figure it out. How is life supposed to get any better if you bury everything deep down inside and don't say anything? Take this song by Jewel... It's called Satisfied and I prefer the acoustic mix but the first bit of lyrics are what I'm trying to live by:

If you love somebody
You better let it out
Don't hold it back
While you're trying to figure it out
Don't be timid
Don't be afraid to hurt
Run toward the flame
Run toward the fire
Hold on for all your worth
Cause the only real pain a heart can ever know
Is the sorrow of regret
When you don't let your feelings show
[Chorus]
So did you say it
Did you mean it
Did you lay it on the line
Did you make it count
Did you look 'em in the eye
Did they feel it
Did you say it in time
Did you say it out loud
'cause if you did hun
Then you lived some
That feeling inside
That's called satisfied

The lyrics explain what I've had the most problems with in my life.... I've never just said what I needed to say or if I did it was always too late. So I'm trying to be better now... because you never know when the last conversation will be.

  1. The lyrics to this song speak of the importance of saying what you feel, when you feel..something we should all do more often, myself included. This really makes me think, because you're right, we never know when the last conversation will be.
