Why do we do it? Communicate with each other, that is. Why do we send out words, in the hope that they will be recognized? Are we trying to convince ourselves that there is a third option; That our words could have a different effect than simply being agreed with or rejected by others?
Communication is breaking our skin.
It is so much more than words. It is because we are and we need others know that we are and what we are.
It is not words. But it is also actions, it is art, it is sighs and it is signs.
Do you need words that say "I am happy"? Or do you dance?
Words that say "I care"? Or a hug?
Words to say "I love you"? Or a kiss?
Does a painting not speak to you if it has no written words?
Or a songs melody if it has no lyrics?
If I sigh deeply, will you not understand my state? And if I shrug, will it not make sense?
Communication is coexistence. Words are only a tool for your mind.
