Sometimes... silence nearly kills me. It is paralyzing. I don't know that others, especially the ones I love, realize that. Silence sends a message.
"Silence, they say, is the voice of complicity.
But silence is impossible.
Silence is a message, just as doing nothing is an act.
Let who you are ring out and resonate in every word and every deed.
Yes, become who you are.
There's no sidestepping your own being or your own responsibility.
What you do is who you are.
You are your own comeuppance.
You become your own message.
You are the message."
