The unspoken word is sometimes more powerful than the spoken word. Silence can send a person back into the depths of their soul. A place that might have been visited in the past. It's a struggle to come up from that depth, back into the light, not a place to be sent back to; but sometimes it happens. In that depth, depression can be found and it will envelop and surround your being.
"Be true to yourself." There are but two ways up, back into the light. Only one can be made by thyself, the other by the sender.
