Silence is golden they say yet the very same silence becomes a danger, a torture method, a way to unleash your insanity you never knew even existed.
When silence is broken there is liberation, justice served, it unveils the perpetrator and frees the victim. It allows you to take back your life.
We know all wounds aren’t visible, but we need to learn to be in tune, notice when something has changed- enthusiasm, drama, silence, isolation. Anything. Open your eyes- look at these physical differences as well- whether it be your friend, family member, co-worker, colleague, boss or even your neighbour.
Why can’t we listen to the cry of SILENCE? Oh because we’re all deaf. Deaf because we are to caught up with our lives, we can’t hear the HELP ME! coming from our son who found out that his nether ends does strange things when he’s around a girl, that our daughter is having a hard time coping at school- this boy keeps staring at her, following her, victimises her. What about your neighbour who doesn’t fit her label “nosy parker”- have you seen her tear stained face, have you noticed her hair isn’t pulled back. No YOU CAN’T SEE this either.
BE SILENT AND LISTEN WITH BOTH YOUR EYES AND EARS. It’ll help and comfort your SON, your DAUGHTER and your NEIGHBOUR
