You never cover up or keep it all inside.

It is possible to find joy in sorrow. It is possible to find sorrow in joy. Sometimes, happiness incites memories of pain; right reminds us of wrong. It is during these times that I find myself unable to speak. I don’t know what to say. Where do I draw the line between explaining where I’ve been and influencing where I’m going?

I share. Sometimes too much. I want a person to walk in my shoes, to empathize. But I wonder if that isn’t too much to ask. Or if that wouldn’t do more damage than good. So I bite my tongue. And when people ask me why, I’m forced to shrug. Would you want to know? To really know?
