We have all been on the receiving end of texts, emails, calls, or fights where things were said to or about us, that no matter how the situation resolved, left an open wound of distrust. And we ourselves have delivered those blows to people, unjust, and without thinking, slaying them callously with our serpent tongues. For many of us, our tongues are the master and us its servant, slaves to what it speaks in our name, unable to stop it from wagging.
Just Because They’re Strong Doesn’t Mean They Don’t Need You.
Some of the most deeply hurt people try very hard to cover up their true feelings. They are masters at hiding their emotions from the world, so as not to show a perceived weakness, they've been conditioning themselves to believe they can never succumb to. And so in silence, they suffer as they hold your hand through your latest work-related drama, dry your tears over your latest break-up, and celebrate with you during your latest victory.
