I'm quoting that just so I can remember exactly what I want to say.
They don't, Sweetheart. They don't. People that throw other people away don't understand your entry no matter what they say to the contrary. [And oh they will say they understand. Don't let your ears get ahead of what your heart is warning you about.]
It's two different forms of communication. I can use sign language to speak to a person that can hear, but part of my message is lost in translation. The sheer frustration of not being to articulate myself in someone else's terms when I want nothing more than is maddening. It will drive you to the brink of sanity and sometimes you'll cross that line drawn in sand and leap for the sake of making contact. Real contact.
I can move my hands faster, hit my hands together harder, and feel the stress in each joint as I desperately try to convey my message... but it means -nothing- if they do not look at me, do not see me, and do perceive me.
Do as I say and not as I do. Never as I do.
I will tell you right now that when they throw you away... They don't realize anything. There are no revelations and there is no magical, fairy tale ending waiting for you at the end of the rainbow with that person.
I know what you are feeling more than you might believe. We're in this together.
