Obvious To Some, Oblivious To Others

It's amazing how some can tell I'm hurting just by the look on my face, and others who look at the same face don't even have a clue. After sitting at the beach in tears almost all day, I cleaned myself up a bit and walked into a fellow dive shop to say hello to a couple of friends. One didn't even know where my heart was a moment ago, but the other one did. He took one look at me and knew that I was in tears. He took a break and pulled me into the office and just held me close as I cried again. I didn't even have to say anything. *Sigh* I can feel my heart aching with heaviness and sorrow. And my soul? Is she even there? I just don't know. I just don't know.

I get that too. Sometimes I notice that people who don't know me will give me a second, more intense look and I can tell they see the pain....

My relatives and family don't notice, or if they do, they just think I'm in one of my moods...they've never asked why I am so sad all the time.

Just had a doctor talk to me really gently and kindly in his consultation room (went to consult with him on my migraine), guess he saw that I was sad.

*hugs* it is painful when people around you don't seem to care nor notice, but that is how the world is...I'm glad you have a friend who notices and gives you comfort. That's most important :)

My sixteen year old son asks me why I am sad, and can he do anything to help! My husband of 22 years hasn't even noticed. Or if he has, could care less to even inquire as to why. Sad
