Does it help to talk about your feelings? Sometimes it really doesn't. For example, if a "friend" hounds you for details on a subject that upsets you, you don't owe it to her to make yourself upset. But on the other hand, if talking to a true friend quickens the healing process, then it's a good thing.
I'm kind of chatty, so I pretty much never need to be told to "talk about it." But some people just aren't so loose with words. For these people, there's a card in the Magical Unicorn deck called "Talk about your feelings."
It's actually kind of a happy-looking card. (The picture makes me giggle.) The picture is of a brown unicorn (brown unicorn?) talking to a cat.
The cat is a white long-haired cat, who seems wise and interested. The brown unicorn is so much larger than the cat, but he seems to be a bit timid, almost emotionally withdrawn. The cat is motioning with her hand, as if to say, "Go on. It's safe. I care."
What a lovely message. Sometimes we can knock things around in our heads all we want, but we don't get what we need until we share it with someone else -- someone who is wise and safe.
In love and light,
