Silence takes on many forms
First was in the physical presence of noise
Second was the effort in speech
Third was the lack of social interactions
Fourth was in notifications
Fifth was in mortality
The despair in silence is so much louder. I suppose it’s because when you feel like people care, it distracts you from the reality of your problems. The false intimacy saves you from your darkest thoughts. The modern band-aid to your mentality.
Bandaids don’t last forever. The same can be said for interactions via social media. While your world falls apart, what silence are you experiencing?
