this one a bit more brutal.

Things we never say on an angry day when they’re only trying to help.

‘You know, you’re not the only one’

I say ‘True, true.’

Because it is.

I don’t say ‘Thanks, I feel much smaller now.’

and ‘I don’t care; this is happening to me.’

‘You know, there are others who are much worse off’

I say ‘True, true.’

Because it is.

I don’t say ‘Thanks, I feel much guiltier now.’

and ‘Do you think I don’t know that?’

‘You know that this attitude is selfish and self-pitying’

I say ‘True, true.’

Because it is.

I don’t say ‘Thanks, I feel so pitiful now.’

and ‘Do you think I want to feel like this?’

‘You know, any of us could be hit by a bus tomorrow’

I say ‘True, true.’

Because it is.

I don’t say ‘Thanks, I feel melodramatic now.’

Or ‘I look forward to that.’

‘You know, you should be positive’

I say ‘Perhaps, perhaps’

Because it’s probably true.

I don’t say ‘Thanks, I feel a failure now.’

and ‘How does that work exactly?? Wanna show me?’

‘You know, you need to fight it’

I say ‘True, true.’

Because it is.

I don’t say ‘Thanks, I feel much weaker now.’

and ‘Which weapons do you suggest I employ?’

‘You know, that miracles can happen’

I say ‘True, true.’

Because it is.

I don’t say ‘Thanks, I feel so faithless now.’

or ‘Yeah, but let’s face it; that’s not going to happen.’
