back then when i was Always Talking Too Much or Saying All The Wrong Things, Eldest Sis said this – “do all things need saying? Just because you have an opinion, must you make it such that others have to listen to you just because you have something to say?”
so over the next few years, i caved in. i conclude: not all things need to be said aloud, to be addressed.
similarly, the Outspoken need not always get his or her point across just because he or she is that: outspoken.
yet at the same time, i concur that ironically, in the process of realizing this – i lost my own voice.
how dare you say i am less than grateful about my life – grateful is what i genuinely feel, if nothing else.
