To Tell Someone

“Whatever you are feeling right now, there is a mathematical certainty that someone else is feeling that exact thing” ~Neil Hilborn

To tell someone would mean to let someone in. It would mean letting someone see my true self… all of me. To tell someone would constitute vulnerability and transparency. Neither of those sound particularly appetizing. They cause the burn of bile in the back of my throat. It is the rising heat in mid-May coming up from my torso. I believe that this is a painful thing for a lot of people to experience. To tell someone would mean that they have the ability to understand me which, in turn, would give them the power to crush me.

To tell someone would mean giving them the knife and telling them where to cut.
