Random Thoughts 21

The most important things are the hardest to say. They are the things you feel ashamed of because words diminish them. Words shrink things that seem limitless when they were in your heart, to no more than living size when they're brought out. But it's more than that isn't it? The most important things lie too close to wherever your secret heart is buried, and you make revelations that cost you dearly, only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you've said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it. That's the worst I think, when the secrets or feelings stay locked inside not for want of a teller, but for want of an understanding ear.
  It's hard to make strangers care about the good things in your life.
