Happy Families

HAPPY FAMILIES

The silence spoke volumes
Passive aggression
She didn’t know the term
But then she had no need

She had no real desire
To continue living
And so was quite grateful
For his contribution

He had no real desire
To continue living
And so was quite grateful
For her contribution

Passive aggression
The silence spoke volumes
He didn’t know the term
But then he had no need

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.

  1. This so true of many couples, the things people do for a quiet life 💜

  2. Passive aggression – one of the most harmful corrosives in any relationship. Alas….

  3. During my days in the Special Constabulary, I attended to domestic violence cases.

    Usually, the man had hit the wife and she called the cops. Careful questioning revealed that some times the woman had resorted to passive aggression over a length of time. Passive violence was not recognized by the law courts back then and even now I reckon.

    Just saying…

    But to be clear, I never condoned physical violence. It is overt, ugly, leaves scars seen and unseen, and tugs at our heart strings.
