At times there are things we feel we cannot talk about, and it can be for many reasons. Sometimes the pain or memory of events closely related to certain topics is just too raw, too sensitive to delve into. Sometimes we have not quite worked out the events and how best to deal with them. Perhaps the cause of the issue eludes us. Other times we just haven’t worked out a clear and coherent enough solution to feel we can speak, as of yet, without possibly just making matters worse. Perhaps it’s matters of political correctness that keep us from talking, and that too has its place and can serve to help sensitive areas be avoided and wounds more time to heal.
