Published

on

Many times, people use the term “open.” Often, people hear the word as a child when someone makes us eat a spoonful of food. With time, the word which everyone hears is now- “open up.” Whether in discussing any work detail or speaking up with friends, many times, this word is heard.

Often, people wish to open up more in comparison with their present situation. No doubt, everyone feels happy when sharing their views, opinions, or feelings with someone else. Everyone is concerned about certain things in life, and it becomes good when you get someone to talk about it. It’s a good situation when you develop trust towards someone.

What do you understand by “opening up?”

When involved in a conversation with someone, do you feel shy or comfortable to open up with your thoughts? Do you feel like you can talk by opening up anonymously? Or don’t find any difference between anonymity and concealment. If it doesn’t bother you to open up whether being anonymous or concealed, then it is also about your bonding with the other person. There’s no problem in sharing ideas or opinions with others. This can be a great way of building trust, which makes communication smoother. Don’t let your complex soul feel afraid of expressing your feelings. When you feel like communicating with someone about your inner feelings, it is the first sign of being open up.

Do you like being a narrative about yourself?

Often, people use the word “narrative” in context with stories where you get the real narrative! Though, the narrative word itself holds a meaning which can apply in your personality traits too. Are you a person who feels shy about being a narrative for your thoughts? Without starting a conversation, it’s not possible to interact with anyone. If you start being open-up to others, it also invites them to talk about their thoughts too. It may sound difficult to be open-up, or it can be a feeling of getting naked psychologically in front of others. Though, when you wish to express your feelings to someone, being open-up and expressable personality can be helpful.

Opening-up is not an easy thing.

Do you feel anxious to explores your inner feelings? Does your confidence lack think whether your feelings will not be accepted by someone? Though being a “shut-up” personality is also not going to be a good thing. If you’re not able to let your inner opinions come out from your mind, you may get stuck in the thought of being an introvert. Also, it means that one doesn’t accept him or her fully.

Top five ways to become open-up in front of others

  1. Become the same from outside too

What’s inside your mind, you need to let it expressable through your outside personality also. Being an opaque object from outside is not going to let the person you’re talking with understand about your personality. Let your inner feelingsreflect on your outside personality. It can also be your behavior, which speaks up about your inner personality.

  1. Avoid being an unaware personality

Often, people end-up replying, “I’m not aware of it” when feeling uncomfortable to open up about a certain thing. Don’t decide your comfort level when trying to become open-up. If you’re not opening-up with others, it won’t be possible to interact with someone properly. Also, it may create trust issues with others.

  1. Don’t be afraid of speaking something

Not everyone is speaking everything, which is either true or being liked by everyone. The introvert personality people are afraid of speaking something just with the thought that someone won’t like it. Though, you need to think about yourself first whether you’re comfortable with speaking something. If you feel an urge to express your thought on a certain topic, don’t let anything stop you from speaking. It may be possible that your thoughts give a new dimension to a topic being discussed by your friends or relatives.

  1. Don’t start with questions only

      

When being open-up, it is crucial to understand that starting a conversation with a question is not going to be sound. For example, if you want to express your feelings of affection towards someone, you might be planning to confess it. Though, when you start proposing someone with a question like whether he or she loves you, it may not sound good.

  1. Express your feelings

Often, people face difficulties in expressing their feelings. Though, when it comes to thoughts, it may not be such a difficult task. Being open-up about your feelings is nothing to feel bad about.

In the end, one must know that the extent of someone being open-up with you depends upon your behavior with them. Many times, people experience that after a relationship grows, the level of openness increases, which boosts sound communication. Being open-up is not anything bad. Instead, it’s beneficial for developing good relationships with others.
