We are prisoners of that which goes unsaid. For anything but the truth, is a lie. You must find the strength within yourself, to be honest with, and for, yourself.
Alas, A sharp tongue may cut. Tis better to be their ear than your cheek.
Speak your truth or live a lie. The choice is ultimately yours. But know this, a burden which is set free will no longer shackle you.
Just my 3rd cents.
