When I get in a ‘mood’, I very often shut down. I am all too aware of the repercussions of opening my mouth. I KNOW what can happen if I speak. Even if I speak the truth, if I’m in a ‘mood’, others will invalidate it’s worth – because I am ‘in a mood’.
So for the past five days I have been quiet.
I’m exhausted from playing nice. But it’s over now. Everyone has moved on from my birthday and I can stop pretending to be happy and energetic.
