Misery likes

Making people uncomfortable

It’s a gift, or maybe it’s a curse

The jury is still out on that one

Honesty is often not welcome

Concealing feelings is preferred by the vast majority

Misery may love company,

but company definitely do not want to hear, see, or feel misery

Misery reminds us of our fragile humanity

Or demands a response we are unwilling to give

To sit, holding the hand of one suffering misery

Is an endeavor many, if not most, choose to forego

And that’s okay

It only takes one

To comfort





And relieve
