The silent ones

True misery doesn’t love company.

It decays the soul in silence.

When someone is complaining, it’s because they still have hope that someone cares enough to listen or respond.

Or even to empathise.

When they give up on these three things, they go silent because they have grown to accept that no one else cares, or understands the state that they’re in.

Too often we see their silence and assume it to be acceptance of their struggles or challenges, meanwhile it often symbolises the slow death of dreams, hopes, and ultimately, a life.

Silence is the silent killer, more than rage.

Listen with both ears and your heart.

Pay attention to the silent ones.

Your noise of ingratitude may just be drowning out their silence of pain.

Find the balance between living loud and loving sincerely.

The one without the other will smother people closest to you.
