Was it really better left unsaid?

1 Comment


In all human relationships, we want to share what’s on our heart with others. Unfortunately, our own fears, uncertainties, etc., sometimes keep us from speaking our minds. Not necessarily to be mean to others. It can be at the bedside of a dying parent, with whom you want dearly to make peace about a certain situation. Or perhaps when a boss wants us to go in a direction we’d rather not go. Life is full of moments when we bite our tongues, only to later wish we had said what we were thinking at the time.

One thought on “Was it really better left unsaid?

  1. First I want to say that I am struggling Catholic, I have let myself be influenced by life in situations that have happened that has stopped me and my husband from going to mass and receiving communion for about 11 years now. I have been feeling the tug at my heart for the last month or so to get back in to God’s house, to where I feel depressed now because I don’t go to mass. And then this topic do you have today reminds me of struggles that I have with my mother and father Who basically gave me and my siblings up when we were children to live with her grandparents and they went off and did their own thing. My mother took me back when I was 13 and I’ve had a hard time since then because it’s been a very difficult relationship one without any love or support. My father has since been married three times now and went off to live in Montana now with his current wife he’s a God-fearing person, he goes to a Nazarene church and his wife is a convert from Catholic is him to his religion. To make a long story short I haven’t spoken to either one of them really in a very long time, my mother is dying from colon cancer she has stage four and I’m not sure how I feel about it. I want to sit with her in the hospital recently and there so many things I wanted to say to her but I ended up not saying anything at all I’m just sitting with her and holding her hand. She still alive she still battling the cancer which has been two more years now with it and many surgeries later. But I still don’t bring anything up even though I feel like sometimes I should. And the same thing with my dad. I guess it 51 years old but I am now I’m not really sure anymore how to think, feel, or say to them especially with me being so far away myself from the church. I feel like I would be a hypocrite . Not sure why am writing to tell you all this, I guess I’m asking for prayers from you that I make the right decisions and that I find my way home, because every day that goes by I feel more depressed and I feel like I’m letting everybody down and myself.

    Thank you for your show, and thank you for reading this.
    Blessings to you both, Lori Maynard-Carranza
