I think the biggest regret one could have on their death bed is that they held back showing their love to others who are very important in their lives or that they realized the importance of those others too late. People do this all the time in all kinds of ways for all different reasons. Afraid of being truly committed to another, we hold back. Afraid of getting hurt, we hold back. Afraid of being taken advantage of, we hold back.  Afraid of speaking up or trying to negotiate what we want and need from our partner, we hold back. There are a zillion reasons we do it. But holding back means we never commit. Others notice that. So they hold back too. And so the cycle begins. 

Just something to think about.  Thanks for joining me.
