Sometimes, I just want to talk something out.
Because talking gives sense to words, and arranging words in sentences helps you process situations, people, ideas.
But apparently talking annoys people a lot. Maybe because they’d have to listen and it’s things they don’t want to hear.
Well, we’ve all got things we are uncomfortable about. But if we don’t say them… don’t try to let them fall out in broken sentences or imperfect words… then how will we resolve them?
It’s bothering me currently that often, many people I know prefer to sweep things under the carpet and let it fester for years and years instead of just bringing it up and talking about it.
Could it be that the simple solution lies in just having a conversation about it and just having the freedom to express whatever needs to be said?
But no. Far better to stick to only saying nice things, and to smooth out the rough edges, always berating the one who wants to discuss things.
That someone being me, of course.
I’ve always believed that there is a resolution for every difficult issue out there. But I’m coming to realise that this only true when all parties involved want to do something to make things better.
Anytime someone gives up or refuses to budge to change anything, then nothing will ever improve and you’ll have those circumstances where people come to terribly sad conclusions like “irreconcilable differences” and the like.
I think it’s really for a lack of determination to find a way, honestly. But it’s hard to change people. And people will always insist that you are the one who is wrong, though sometimes you might not actually be.
(That’s not to say I’m never wrong, just that it’s hard to put in a word if all others care about is pointing out who’s right/wrong rather than what was actually needed for the situation.)
I suppose it seems like I am speaking in riddles. Well, I can’t decide how much details I should write about on a public platform like this blog.
Oh, but this is my space. Perhaps I shouldn’t care as much.
What do you think, my dear reader? Should we bring out the closet skeletons? Might be fun for a bit, no?
