I Am Leaving Some Things Unsaid

    I try never to lie except

    when I think it may hurt or crush another persons feelings unnecessarily, then I attempt to do it through omission, rather then by misleading. Truisms become what they are after time testing and recorded outcomes, and this one I think is the kindest of all back handed gifts...

    What Are Words?

    What are words? The moment we commit to speak we step away from the truth of silence. We can’t say what we really mean and there is no way to insure what we say is received in the way we first meant it. Yet we try and try again.

    It's Best to Choose Carefully What We Reveal Here

    I'm so scared to be involved with anyone

    because I know that nothing lasts forever an it hurts so much when they go. I can't get close anyone. I don't talk about real problems. Avoid. Avoid. Avoid. It's so easy to avoid feelings. I just need to be numb. Always. Nothing feels right anymore. So just stay numb.

    Somethings are better left unsaid.

    But if your me you say them anyways and regret it later. I'm trying to keep my mouth shut but it eats me up if I don't speak my mind. I'm a proud person and can be out spoken at times. But I find if I bottle things up it just gets worse and eats at me until I explode. Maybe I...

    I tend to be an open book with those I know and trust but times like tonight, when I have so much to say, I'm choosing to say nothing.  Maybe it is because of "self preservation", fear or maybe as part of "growing up". Tonight I'm choosing to be quiet and...

    I don't know when and how I became this way, nor can I decide whether such a person as I am is acceptable or not, especially to oneself. There are plenty of things I don't tell anyone. What I think, how I feel, and I can't decide whether it's good for me to suppress my emotions...
