There is nothing I hate more

than to watch people suffer

with problems they could easily solve,

all because they're too afraid to say something.

Everyone has that thing they can't say

to anyone else

or that thing they can't even admit to themselves,

and everyone has sentences

that always seem to be on their mind

on

the

tip

of

their

tongue,

but fear often envelops us before confidence can,

and more words go unsaid,

more feelings supressed.

It's ludicrous

for me to ask for your trust

when you hardly know me,

but trust me,

I

have

been

there,

and I know

that sometimes

the hardest thing to say

makes your life so much easier

once it's been said.

Please

do not put yourself

through

stress

and

misery

all because of a conversation you're too scared to have.

Because when it comes down to it,

even the hardest words to say

are nothing to be scared of.

They're just words.

Letters

and syllables

and apostrophes

and spaces.

Nothing more.

Trust me,

I'm a writer.

I know words better than anybody.

And I also know

that when chosen carefully

and uttered respectfully

words can change your life

for

the

better.

I know some things are hard to say,

hard to admit,

hard to even think about,

but if you just use your voice

even if it's cracking and almost silent,

you can lift weight from your chest

that you never even knew was there,

and isn't that worth the risk?
