SILENCE IS NOT AN ANSWER.
Silence is NOT kind; it is a coward’s way out of facing up to a difficult discussion because he doesn’t want to look bad.
To most women, silence is a torturous place where hope and doubt wage a very destructive war in her mind.
A real man will never walk away in silence and leave a woman alone in the dark with the nightmares of her past and deep seeded fears wondering what happened; because he knows - what she imagines is a thousand times worse than anything he could ever say.
PLEASE - Do not offer a woman a safe place to be vulnerable and open with you unless you are man enough to be there to help to guide her back to the light before you walk away. Anything less is destructive and honestly quite cruel.”
