There are things you don't ask a person about. Things that are in their minds and hearts that are there to keep them safe and sane in the situations that would kill other people. People who can find these places in themselves are able to take on things that others only dream of...or have nightmares about. You don't ask a person about these places inside of them. They are deep, personal, and powerful in ways that are all consuming. To talk about them, you have to have that place in you too. If you don't, you can never understand and you will leave the other person feeling more isolated than before. If you do, there is no need to speak of it.
