Out of Words

I’ve been looking, for days, maybe weeks, for the words to tell someone that their words, meant only to praise and shore up instead wounded and belittled me.

I’ve been looking, for weeks, maybe years, for the words to tell someone that their words, meant only to support and honor instead abandoned and ignored me.

I’ve been looking for words to say a lot of unsayable things.

The words aren’t coming.

  1. Wow! Great post. Sometimes I think I know the words, say them, and then regret them. Thank you for reminding me to actually search for the words instead of just spitting them out as I usually do!

  2. Thank you for this. It’s a reminder to choose our words carefully. I can feel your pain in this post and I want to thank you for the raw honesty you put into it. The words might not be there yet, but you have written some painfully beautiful ones today.

  3. This is so powerful. Sometimes, even when our head acknowledges intent, our hearts are stunned wordless. Maybe these few words, framing what happened to you will lead to others. Blessings.
