It’s the quiet ones you should fear. Because they have a whirlwind of thoughts howling in their minds.
They won’t always tell you what they’re thinking, but you can see their emotions reflected in their eyes.
They are the ones who will look out for you no matter what. They’ll be there whenever you ask for help, and will go out of their way to please you. They’re the ones you want to have as friends because you take for granted that they’ll do their utmost for you. But they’re also the ones you fail to appreciate. Yet, they stay. Because that is the type of person they are. They don’t measure or count what they do for you, they do things because they feel them in their heart.
The quiet ones are the ones who also need others the most, regardless how much they say otherwise.
They would ideally like to have people around who care as much as they do. People who during a crisis will show up without having been asked to simply to check in on them. We all want friends around us who every once in a while ask if we’re OK, if we need anything, or simply to be there for a walk, a chat, and a hug. People who are present and make it all seem manageable because we don’t feel like we’re fighting against the world alone.
It’s the quiet rivers that lead to the loudest streams. But when they’re calm, they offer the most refreshing waters.
