Linda G Hill: One Liner Wednesday

It’s not that I was denying the grief I felt over the death of my cat by not discussing itwith some of my acquaintances. I just didn’t want to share that experience with individuals who for the most part are attention floozies and would just gossip about it.

Is that the same as denying my grief?

“Give sorrow words; the grief that does not speak knits up the o-er wrought heart and bids it break.”
― William Shakespeare, Macbeth
