quote-not talking September 5, 2012

“It’s better not talking about some things.”

“Not talking isn’t better.  Just easier”

~Monique Polak in The Middle of Everywhere. p. 148

I hate that ‘hide it under the rug’ thing that happens with some people.  No one ever discusses issues, so nothing changes.  People who are terrified of conflict, never discover the satisfaction of resolving an issue.  Ignoring it doesn’t make it go away.  A little healthy discourse can clear the air enough to bring people even closer.  Not talking keeps everyone in bubbles of isolation.

Talking is better.
