~ When fear keeps you locked up, what tends to happen next is resentment. With resentment comes sickness and the truth sinks deeper. When you hold it in you only hurt yourself and the buried truth turns into depression (which creates more damage than any punishing judgment from the outside). I implore you to speak your heart gently without fear of judgment or repercussions.
Know this: Heart truth cannot be denied, and if someone claims differently, it is only because you have hit a nerve in their own buried pain that rekindled the fire with-in.
Say what you mean and mean what you say. This is the highest form of self-love when it is directed from the eye of the heart. In the Truth, you are always protected.
