“When someone is crying, of course, the noble thing to do is to comfort them. But if someone is trying to hide their tears, it may also be noble to pretend you do not notice them.”

    I am learning many things . . and living life missing those we love is a grief that is not helpful to my health. It causes physical stress and tension. I cry in solitude mostly because when I cry in public I am told by others how stupid I am. I think I do not need anymore reinforcement that I am stupid. I was obviously stupid. My children hate me. Their father is not stupid and they love him dearly. My imagination is my worst enemy and my best friend.
