Walking on eggshells

Feels an awful lot like glass,

Bloodied and broken

    You have wonderful way of making every word work for you, Sis. Love this powerful haiku!

    It's so odd that we have to walk on, or well, more around eggshells. Yet, when we let honesty do the trampling for us those shame shards of eggshells feel as if they're doing less damage, even if it does hurt us a little. It's as if the initial cuts and bruises become calluses (hope I'm using the right word) so that it's easier for us to deliver the truth to people that can't bear it.
