If You Can Talk About It, You Can Manage It.

Have you lied to someone you love? Is it hard to talk about things that bother you or things that you left in your past?

Communication is so big when your dealing with other people. It can make or break any kind of relationship because, it is a key role.

The biggest thing in relationships is being able to manage whatever is thrown your way. It doesn’t matter what type of relationship it is whether it’s between parent and child, a couple, or even a friendship. But, to be able to coexist and manage communication correctly with each other allows comprehension and trust to be gained.

You can’t go through a relationship thinking “oh it was just a little white lie” or “It was in my past so it doesn’t matter now” you have to think of how your words and choices will affect the other person in the relationship. For example if you lie to your sister because you don’t want her to know something. If she were to find out she would be hurt, mad, and even lose trust in you all because you didn’t tell the truth. Or if you had multiple sexual partners in the past but didn’t tell your current partner Because “It was in your past”. That could affect them negatively.

To just be honest and talk and communicate what’s going on in that moment is huge. It can be discussed and taken into consideration for your decisions and help others understand who you are. If you can bring it up you can manage the situation. no matter the situation.

Someone who Understands

Sometimes I just go through the most annoying periods of my life where I’m just depressed and I know I’m depressed.

Right now I’m going through postpartum depression and I never even realized I was depressed until I had a full mental break down. But, it definitely helps because my best friend is going through it too. Don’t get me wrong I wouldn’t want to wish any kind of depression on anyone, but my best friend and I had babies a month apart so she does understand mentally and physically right here and now what I’m going through.

I may not know what everyone is going through individually but I do know that having someone who doesn’t judge, doesn’t make the situation about them, and can still sympathize with what your going through can really be a wonderful thing.

I guess this is just kind of like an appreciation post for all those people out there who understand and support their loved ones whether they are blood relation or not. So thank you to the people out there who are our support systems.
