Quote of the Day – and when at last you find…

And when at last you find someone to whom you feel you can pour out your soul, you stop in shock at the words you utter— they are so rusty, so ugly, so meaningless and feeble from being kept in the small cramped dark inside you so long.

― Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

This stirring quote was sent to me by Obscured Dreamer and I just love the vivid, provocative description.

  1. but as the relationship flourishes it becomes easier and more normal to say. you become better at sharing how you feel and about telling them what is going on.
    a beautiful post which is SO true it hurts
    hope that you are smiling, keep posting 🙂

    • This is such a splendid comment – thank you! It’s true, the first opening up of the heart and mind is always the hardest. After that, you can trust and it becomes so much easier. I hope you’re smiling also!
