I am the one who has to fill the silence. Without meaning to be, I fell into the roll of The Communicator. I guess I am a natural at communication. So much so that, while it is never something I set out to be true, it became what has defined me.
Sometimes, we have to end things for self preservation. Sometimes, it takes time to realize a relationship is toxic.
I have been going through a rough time lately and I have not been silent about it. Since I lost my cat, I haven’t been silent about my pain. I WILL tell you when I am “not ok” – as I have said before, I will not just say I am ok for the sake of an other person’s harmony when they post the obligatory are you ok? question. So, if I am not, I will say so. And recently, I have not been.
