Sometimes it's better to keep silent than to tell others what you feel because it hurts badly when you come to know that they can hear you but can't understand.
“Sometimes” I personally feel you should never bottle your feelings inside. I mean never. However, take into full considering what the “others” are. I share my feelings with only whom I know I will be understood, but don’t risk sharing your feelings with people whom you may be misunderstood.
“It is better to remain silent at the risk of being thought a fool, than to talk and remove all doubt of it.” ~ Maurice Switzer
“Many times in life I've regretted the things I've said without thinking. But I've never regretted the things I said nearly as much as the words I left unspoken.” ~ Lisa Kleypas
It takes someone to go through the same thing you went through before they can understand. Telling your story is not asking for sympathy you just want to unload yourself of the burden you are carrying. Its not passing the burden to another human being but having a sounding board when you want someone to just have an ear, you are not asking for anything, sympathy,empathy or compassion. ~ Norma Powell
