I Think So Much Goes Unsaid

    Dear Mr. Sylph

      I wake up and can not get over what I have dreamt the night before. Giving me a very disturbing sleep and the morning after only proves to be unsettling.   So many times I have attempted to say what I needed to say but has never ended saying what they all are...

    So Much

    There is still so much that I want to say, that I want to know, and that I want to ask. But I just can't, and it really sucks...so I'm just stuck here with myself and my mind to make up all of these possible answers to my questions that I have...and they aren't usually good..It's...

    Regrets

    I wish people we so scared of saying what is on their mind. There would be so many less regrets that way. I guess the most easily thing i learned in my life was to never be afraid to ask questions, no matter how silly the question. If it is a yes or no question, the worst...

    Body Language Can Say A Thousand Words.. I Wish Sometimes People Would Just Spit It Out.

    Some Things Shouldn't Be Said

    I remember talking with a friend before about family problems, and what was going on with my old man. The question came up about whether or not everything that could be said should be said. Is it necessary to tell someone how much you hate them, how disgusted with them you are...

    Even For Someone Who Talks So Much

    It's amusing that even for people like me, who probably say far too much, it pales in comparison to all that goes unsaid.  And maybe that's how it's meant to be.  Would any of us really be better off if we spoke everything we think and feel?  Instead, we know each others...

    7 And Counting

    I think what can cause the biggest issues in my relationship is what goes unsaid. Better yet, what goes unsaid and then gets blasted out in deafening screaming matches. My boyfriend has grown shy of me and tiptoes around me. I blame myself for this, as I can only ask why would a...

    On Saturday noon, this was what I wrote:   How do you grieve the loss of a grandmother that you never really knew?   All right; maybe the last part was a bit of an exaggeration. I did know my paternal grandmother, but I didn’t know her know her the way I know my maternal...

    Never An Empty Canvas

    Are words that important? Does a silence say everything we need to hear? Perhaps... Words are so good or so bad that it is impossible to live without them. The certainty that many of them can bring is better than silence any doubts that may leave. And by trying to figure out...

    Way Too Much

    I wonder, many times, what would have happened if I had done this or that differently. I agree that if something is going to hurt someone, and it can go unsaid, it's better that it does. Some things are better left unsaid, if they are not going to make a difference...

    Too Much For Too Long

    When the unsaid things go unspoken for so long, it builds and turns into an issue. So much in life does go unsaid and I think a lot hinges on pride. If we just buckled down and said what was on our minds half the time, life would be so much easier.I wish I had wisdom. Does anyone...

    Words Unsaid Can Become Actions Screamed Loudly.

    For me, I can't put my feelings into words and wish I could just scream at the top of my lungs, "This is what I'm feeling and I need you to just understand." I think every so often I wonder what would happen if I said the things I really meant. I refuse to express myself at times...

    Mostly Always

    Why give into the fear of the consequences of saying things that are better off not said? I mean, are they really better off clawing at your mind rather than floating through the atmosphere? Do not be afraid of society swallowing the words you've struggled to get out.

    I've never been very good at saying what I mean so instead I used to keep my mouth shut. I never saw a problem with it until all of these things I believed I couldn't say started to eat me inside. Each little thought, each little idea was like a knife in my head so I weren't to...

    I made the decision not to leave things unsaid.  Life is too short.  If you love someone - tell them.  Don't keep it to yourself.  Love is far too big to carry on your own ... Remind those you love that you love them ... what greater gift can we give...

    I think that some people don't want to say something, maybe because they forgot it and thought it wasn't important, when in fact it may have been.Or Afraid of how someone else is going to take it. I just think that a lot of times friendships and connections fail because of...
