When I'm down.. (Not for the squeamish)

You want to know how I got these scars?
'Reach out' they say...
'Don't suffer in silence' they say...
'You're not alone' they say...

There's a stereotype that men don't talk because they themselves see it as 'weak'.
Maybe for some, thats true.. but not me.
None of my family knows, because quite simply they have their own lives, worries and burdens.
If I told them of my troubles I'd only be burdening them further.

And who am I to do that to them?
That would be selfish in my eyes.

I bet they'd rather listen to your troubles than your eulogy. I definitely would.
