Misery Doesn't Always Love Company
Age Group: Adult
Misery doesn't always love company
Some of us hide ourselves away to avoid spreading our negativity.
People don't need to be exposed to and infected by our disdain
So we keep it ourselves
We allow it to fester and eat away at us and only us because we don't want to hurt others and thus have no outlet
This is a dangerous and lonely choice to make
We retreat to keep our friends and loved ones safe~ from us
But when we re-emerge from our self-imposed exile where is everyone?
Life moves on without those of us that get stuck spinning our wheels
Never is there a 'thank you' for putting someone else's welfare before our own
It's always "Where have you been?" or "Why haven't been there for me?"
Don't they know that by hiding ourselves away we ARE there for them and not ourselves?
Should we not hide then?
Should we be front and center and always present with our misery and negativity in tow?
OH NO! That would never do!
If we did that we would be like a plague~ infecting everyone around us.
People wouldn't be able to handle us and would turn their backs to protect themselves
So what do we do?
What are our choices?
Least of all the inflicted………
