Communication, or talking to other living beings and understanding what others say, is very important in your life. If people did not communicate we wouldn't be able to know what others wanted, or what to do, or where to go. If you are in class, and you do not understand something, you ask. Then you listen to the explanation and understand what you did not understand earlier.
Communication is also important if you have pent-up emotions. If the feelings are bad or sad and you do not express them, they can start to make you disagreeable and/or distraught, and if the feelings are happy, they might make you overly spunky or giddy. If you have pent-up feelings, talk to someone about them. (Or I suggest running laps for your friends' and parents' sake!)
During great disturbances in your life, say a move, school change or parents' divorce, it is a good idea to talk to people so you can express your feelings and move on, making the best of the situation. If you do not want to talk to your parents, try your friends or siblings, or else a counselor, therapist or doctor. The crucial thing is to express your feelings. Otherwise, these feelings can get stuck inside and never get out, which can lead to problems.
in the end, you will feel better.
