I still remember that as I was growing up I was completely a changed girl. From a happy, talkative, expressive person. I saw myself transform into a quiet person and someone who expressed less. And these changes were drastic! I never shared the incidents, never expressed gratitude like I used to. Why I suddenly transformed into such a person? Retrospecting now, I realize as we grow up and start to become independent we start getting sophisticated, and sadly less expressive. Of course there are people who are introvert but everyone should express to the extent they can.
With time I realized that as I started to share the school stories, my opinions, my complaints and problems. I could work things out like generation gap. I found myself back again and I never had that complaint in my life afterwards, " My parents don't understand me." Same I did with my friend, being on a little higher end ( more expressive than him) I expressed my gratitude for him as well. From time to time, with a small present or with my hug or with my writing I told everyone important that how precious they are to me.
As we grow up, we forget those little things we used to do when we were small. How we used to tell our parents and friends that we love them. Recollect all those lost memories and tell everyone around you how important and precious they are to you. This the most beautiful feeling and It will help you to regain your lost self. Expressing can be in any form but the emotion must be genuine.
