Silent screams

Crying, or a show of emotion, is still a sign of hope that things can be different.

It’s a means to communicate our dissatisfaction because we believe that our dissatisfaction matters.

Our emotional expression is exactly that. An expression.

No one expresses unless there is an expectation of a response.

That response may be from others, or even from within yourself.

Expressing ourselves to others is driven by the belief that they may still care.

Expressing ourselves to ourselves is driven by the hope that we will find relief in exhaling that pain.

It’s when we lose hope of both, others caring about what vexes us, and finding relief through expression even in our private space, that silence seems like the only fitting tribute to the pain we have no hope of resolving.

Silence is the absence of expectation, and the absence of hope.

Don’t always look for signs of hopelessness, because the most intense form of hopelessness isn’t accompanied by a sign. It is accompanied by isolation and loneliness.

It is silence.
