   The most important things are the hardest thing to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them- words shrinks things that seemed limitless when they were in your head 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 close to wherever your secret heart is buried, like landmark to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not undrestanding what you've said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cry while you were saying it. That's the worst I think. When the secrets stays locked within not for want of a teller but for want of an understanding ear...

   This really holds true to me.... It's difficult to talk to someone about what's really on your mind or how you really feel. You want to talk to them about your **** up life and the pain you've been carrying, but you just can't! You are afraid that they might think you are crazy or weird or you just made it up. Or the worst thing that could happen, they shun away from you. Now that sucks!!!

Hi Karlo,
I agree to a point about the words, but really words are powerless unless there is an emotion attached to them, and it is perhaps the failing of language to adequately contain enough right words to express every feeling truthfully, within you these same words make up what you feel, some words make you cringe, some make you smile, some make you cry, so really it is the feeling behind these words that you are trying to express and having difficulty doing, and don't we all,

I use to think that the internet was a cold environment to express your feelings and to listen to others, then i came here, and after a while i found that i was smiling, crying, cringing and really feeling rather near to these people, perhaps even more so than some of my friends,

I doubt anyone here would think you are crazy, we've all probably thought we were at some point, how many of those **** up lives are here, many, and many who have turned it into something wonderful too and more because many do their best to help and support the others here when they need that support

if theres something you need to talk about, then think life is a risk, everything, but at least here you are in one of the safest environments you could have, and afterwards you may find that it wasn't so hard after all, i did it, as many others here have, bared their soul, i did it to strangers, and i'd hardly say that i am brave, but after a while i just felt more at ease so now, i don't care whether anyone understands or if they reject me, i say what i need to say, because in the end it makes me feel better,
