Dreams are abandoned in silence

No one celebrates their defeat, or their surrender.

When they appear to be doing so, they’re looking for empathy or assistance to overcome what they’re finding difficult to deal with.

Or they’re preemptively exposing their shame to deny others the opportunity to shame them.

Giving up loudly is a test or a plea to see if what we’re struggling with is important to those around us.

It’s a means to ask for help when asking for help feels like weakness, or vulnerability.

It’s a way of raising concern about something that we’re unhappy about in company from which we feel uncomfortable asking for assistance.

And we give up silently when we’re finally convinced that it really didn’t matter in the first place.

That’s when we go quietly, without a sound or a sign, but with resolve to leave it behind and move on.

Pay attention to what your loved ones are no longer complaining about, or not asking for help on.

Silence always holds more answers than shouting out loud.
