Silence

When you get to choose the first topic you’d like to talk about, your intro, and it’s silence. That’s how can feel the irony in the very beginning, right? Talking about silence in general is ironic because, can you really describe the unspoken? The things you really feel or hide? Can words express something that you left it or felt it, in silence?

I’ve always wondered why people are secretly in love with silence. Especially the emotional one. Sometimes we claim to hate it, we can’t stand it and others, we desperately need it, as if our lives depend on it. In a world with so much noise around, silence can be both a destructive or a blessed trait.

Let’s take things slow for a bit though. A few years ago, when we mentioned the word ‘’silence’’ it would mean ‘’ the void’’. Ever since, silence has evolved so much to the point where you can’t really tell if it’s a noise or not. It’s everywhere. Especially in a crowded place, in a loud conversation. Because sometimes, it’s not the things that we’re saying holding the key to who we are, but the things we choose not to say, and why. So we’re secretly praying for someone to actually read between the lines, to not only hear to what we say, but also to what we don’t say.

Why is it so hard to just be ourselves though? Would it still be as breathtaking if it was that easy? The human mind and soul are so beautifully complicated, like a mythical riddle, desperately trying to be solved…. Or loved. * poetry intensifies *

It’s like a funny game. We rarely say the things we feel and think openly, yet we wish to be solved, to be less lonely, or alas, to be happy. Maybe it’s our past experiences, people who didn’t appreciate our raw truth that made us so skeptical, so annoyingly cynical at times. But the more I think about it, the more I realize that this is a risk worth taking. Not everyone’s supposed to play a major role in our lives, but keep being who we are even if things were not ideal, is what makes us winners.

Choose silence wisely. To your advantage, not your desctruction. It’s way better being silent than abnormally loud for no reason, but when you feel something intense, don’t bury it in silence. It’s better to live our life with a state of mind that makes us feel free, rather than letting fear (or rejection) rule our entire existence. But then again, what do I know? I’m a mere secret huntress, trying to understand the beauty of the unknown.

    Amazing! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on a completely different topic but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Outstanding choice of
    colors!

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment
    is added I get three emails with the same comment. Is there any way you
    can remove people from that service? Thank you!

      Oh, really? So sorry to hear about that! I understand that it can be quite annoying indeed, I will look into it to see what I can do because I don’t know why this is happening! Sorry for the inconvenience!
