Lost Connections and the Sanctity of Words.

I wrote to her and said ‘No more words from me.’ And that means there must be no more words from me because a promise is a promise. If you don’t keep your promises you have no right to speak them. Thus I am bound by my own self-imposed code of conduct to say what I mean, mean what I say, and live by my words come hell or high water.

But it rankles quite royally because there’s so much I want to say, so much I never said, so much she never understood, so much I want to get off my chest. But I asked myself: ‘Would my saying these things be of any value to her whatsoever?’ The answer came back: ‘No.’

And that’s why there will be no more words from me.
