Silence is golden – they say. I would like to disagree.
Opposite of love is not hate, it is indifference. Silence is indifference.
Silence creates a void. Silence hurts. Silence creates a distance no bridges can cover. Silence can break hearts beyond repair. Silence from our loved ones can wage cold wars which can be so difficult to reconcile. I feel it is always better to communicate rather than being silent about how we feel.
I do understand the other perspective of silence. When without saying you can say it all. And at times words are not needed at all when love and connection is so deep.
