Talk is CHEAP
Updated: Apr 28
Talk is Cheap Until It’s Not
Have you ever found yourself having conversations with yourself?
I don’t mean an under your breath, mumbling. I’m talking full-blown heart-to-heart conversations?
For a long time, I thought I was doing this in my head, but then someone mentioned to me that they could hear me. Wow, how did that happen?
Had I lost my mind?
Perhaps, possibly, likely–hell no.
No, I haven’t lost my mind. I simply found someone who would listen to me without judgment. This person who was hearing me was my witness. She became my best friend.
I would tell her how scared I was, and how lonely and broken I felt. She would wrap her arms around me and say, “I am always here for you.”
When I was growing up, I often felt that my thoughts didn’t matter. My words had no impact. I stopped talking for a long time unless being asked pointed questions. Then, I would only respond with “I don’t care,” or “I don’t know.”
I had learned that words could be empty. They carried no guarantee. Talk was cheap and actions spoke louder than words.
So, I began talking to myself. I could count on her to stay present, surround me with love, and agree with me.
When we find someone who can sit with our thoughts, feelings, and hearts we receive a gift. It’s being seen as a human with pain, ideas, and goals.
So, if you find yourself starting in-depth conversations with yourself, then you know you’re in great company. It shows that you respect your opinion, you love yourself and you trust your inner voice.
Talk could be cheap if you weren’t talking to your truest self.
