With all the talk about the need for open communication to solve all interpersonal problems, I actually do know why open communication doesn’t work all the time.
I’m in one such situation now.
And, do you know what is one of the most pathetic situations to be in?
It’s when you have something to say so badly, your heart is burning hot to say it, your mind can’t focus on anything but saying it, and you are just dying to let it all out, but you can’t say it.
Why not, you might ask. Why don’t you just let it all out to feel better?
Because, relationships matter, that’s why.
And, that’s why people have secrets.
