Deafening Silence

The things we never talk about have a deafening silence. ⁣

Addiction ⁣
Rape⁣
Incest ⁣
Abortion ⁣
Child abuse ⁣
Domestic violence ⁣
STI’s ⁣
Adultery ⁣
Self harm ⁣
Miscarriage⁣
Suicide ⁣
Emotional violence ⁣
SIDS⁣
Infertility ⁣
Mental health ⁣
PTSD ⁣
Bankruptcy ⁣


Yet every single person has been impacted by one or more of these. ⁣

Every. Single. Person. ⁣

No matter if you see yourself as a the victim or the villain in your life story, these are not the problems of others. They are the real and very common hardships of being human. Painful experiences and tough emotions – our inextricable contract with life. ⁣

We let shame and stigma hold our hearts hostage. We fear the rejection and judgment of neighbours who live in glass houses next door. Not sharing our pain or asking for help, omitting aspects of our lives to redact not only the truth but a critical part of our story. The wall built around us with bricks of humiliation and self hatred, secured with secrecy, does not just keep us hidden it keeps us isolated. We forget that we are not the experience or emotion that we link to the pain, we are far more than one aspect or point in time. But our silence shackles us to a lifetime sentence of fear. ⁣

Maybe you don’t need to talk about “it”. Maybe you just needed to know that no matter what your burden, you are not the only one. Look around you. You are not alone in this.
