We don’t say the things that need to be said, so afraid of what we’ll hear in response, and instead choose to fill our lives with silence, or the oppressive sound of useless chatter. We neglect to do the things that need doing, so burdensome do we find responsibility, so we do the unnecessary, ironically taking consequence for foolish deeds instead. We speak from the urge to keep our deepest feelings suppressed and act based on the desperation to hide how much others mean to us. Yet we are never more expressive, in word and deed, when all the meaningless words and fruitless actions leave us misunderstood. And this is why so many people are so very deeply unhappy and will remain perpetually unfulfilled.
