Misery Doesn't Always Love Company

by QueenMommy

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?
Nobody wins.

Least of all the inflicted………
