Oprah was spot on when she said speaking your truth is the most important thing you can do. While at my second hypnobirthing class, the teacher was discussing the importance of the mother having extra support during this time while reducing her load of things to do. After all, she is busy growing a person inside of her. As the teacher spoke, I felt the tears begin to well up in my eyes. I was in front of another couple and my husband beside me, so I tried to wipe the tears away to not create a situation and focus on the teacher. When I realized is that I had been keeping my fears and stressors inside of me, so as not to overwhelm my partner who I knew was already overloaded himself. I wanted to protect him and support him. But I needed support as well, and I couldn’t hold it in any longer. My husband could see it in my face. So when the class ended, I finally spoke up and discussed my fears. Immediately I felt relief and greater connection to my husband. Some we were able to tackle with tangible solutions and others were out of our control and needed to be released. But even discussing them resulted in relief and the feeling that I wasn’t alone. So speak your truth. It CHANGES EVERYTHING!
