Have you ever seen a kid who looks down? Who walks alone? Who never talks?
And you just stand there and watch. You don’t want to be dragged into his problems you say. But if you asked him and listen to him. Maybe just once.
Don’t you think that it would make him feel a bit better. Not needing to keep all pain and all sorrow to him self. But don’t expect him to open up right away cause believe me wounded people need longer time to open up. If you meet me I can could tell you a lot about myself. But it does not mean I trust you. I have few people I can say I would trust them with my life. Since betrayal sets it’s deepest scars and it’s those that you can’t see that last the longest.
