      It’s perfectly fine to wait for years, to be alone with your words, but will you resent yourself if you wait forever? How can you expect anyone to care if no one even knows?

      Ava expresses this from the perspective of writing, though I feel that she’s describing a similar feeling that comes up when verbally sharing thoughts to others (especially those I don’t know that well). Of course the scale of the audience is completely different; yet, they both are forms of sharing, which in and of itself can make the sharer feel very exposed.

      And yet: sharing is sometimes the only way to illustrate your point.
