Who doesn't experience the moments of holding back on a task, not calling the one friend we wanted to connect with for so long, or telling someone what we are really thinking. Every day we are exposed to moments of holding back.
If we ask ourselves why, we would quickly realize that it has more to do with what the other person is thinking than what our intention is. Or that we are afraid to fail and unable to follow through with what is in our heart.
One thing I noticed, if we stick to our guns and believe in ourselves, we will always succeed no matter the outcome. We cannot control the other person's views, beliefs, nor their connection to what is being said.
The only thing we can do is staying true to our intentions. If we know our intentions than we are able to do, say, and accomplish anything we desire to do. Even if it means to change a relationship.
