Your eyes can say things you refuse to utter. The things you keep sealed off in your silence. Those things that you slowly release with every sigh.
We can’t always comprehend what your soul is trying to say. That is why we need to speak. We need the voice to say what our heart fears to show.
Sometimes we need to shout, others to whisper; every form of communication, however, involves talking. There is often no other way of realizing what it is you feel, what thoughts you hide behind that veil of serenity. It is not easy to hear certain things. And often your fear overclouds what you utter. It is why it is said that you should not speak in panic or anger, for you do not know the (harmful) truths you risk saying.
But it is always best to say it. To look into the eyes you wish to address and truthfully pour out your heart’s concerns. It is the preferable and easiest way to avoid misunderstandings and lessen the path towards each other.
For the more you keep silent the more you push the other one away and the more your hearts drift apart.
The secret to any relationship is learning to speak to each other, even when we don’t want to.
