unsaid words

Feeling a bit overextended lately. Busy at work, busy with personal stuff (odds and ends: dentist appt, exchanging a dress, figuring out what Lehigh games we can go to this year, etc.), and whipping up a few guest posts (fun!!). It's a lot at once and I am so looking forward to the 3-day weekend to just take a big, deep breath. So for today, just a quote that I found and love, since I too have found there are important things that I can never find the words to say:

"The most important things are the hardest to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them--words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they're brought out. But it's more that that, isn't it? The most important things lie too close to wherever your secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you've said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it. That's the worst, I think. When the secret stays locked within not for want of a teller but for want of an understanding ear." - Stephen King

What words have you left unsaid lately?
