Have you ever felt like the truth was burning inside of you? like you just want to get something out of your system?
She kept talking on and on and all I wanted to do was scream my true thoughts at her but all I really did was nod. I visualized how I’ll do it, how I’ll tell her what she doesn’t want to hear but every time my mind calculated the next move it just flashed away, I really did try. I thought so hard and the truth burnt through me, it felt like my opinions were snakes trying to climb up my throat but I kept them inside. I didn’t want to hurt her. She was so upset and sad, all I wanted to do was make her feel better so I listened to what she has to say and nodded. For years I have been listening and nodding, agreeing with her silently. I am older now, smarter, I am supposed to know better than open my mouth but I don’t. I still want to do the same as before, I still want to spill it all out.

  1. My parents always fight with each other and they bring me into the fight, both of them try to bring me into their side so they just tell me their side of the fight and each of them always tells me a different story. I kinda understand what’s going on most of the time but I just hate being inside the fight so in the last few years I have stopped saying my opinion which is very frustrating because I just think that both of them are so wrong. Yesterday my mother told me of another fight and I just wanted to tell her how wrong she is but I kept my mouth shut and I am not that kind of person, I am a person with strong opinions and it’s hard to shut up. So what are you talking about?
