One of the tasks of true friendship is
to listen compassionately and creatively
to the hidden silences.
Often secrets are not revealed in words,
they lie concealed in the silence between
the words or in the depth of what is unsayable
between two people. –John O’Donohue

If you’re looking for a happy ending
and you couldn’t find one…
find a new beginning instead.
