From the beginning of time and from the first man ever created, there has existed a breed, a special creature with special talents and features to change man and the world, with their wisdom and silence; they are called “THE CONFESSORS”.
The Confessor has several amazing abilities ranging from multitasking, feeding insatiable creatures, giving life and other countless abilities. She also has the ability to make the guilty both great and small confess their sins whether they like it or not. If you doubt me, let us imagine this scenario together…
A man and his wife return home from work and are both tired, they shower, wife makes dinner and they eat and after dinner they decide to watch a movie. While the movie is on, the man realizes has wife has been quiet all through the evening, she usually would tell him about her day and all that happened and he would listen or pretend to whilst giving her inaudible responses to rhetorical questions like (that girl insulted me today, can you imagine?), not responding to her monologue would start a fight. He sees that not only has she been quiet, but she is peacefully watching the movie, he begins to steal glances at her whilst thinking in his mind “ what have I done now, did I forget our anniversary, did I forget her parents birthday, did I give her that money she asked for, did I forget something she told me?” Since he can’t remember anything he might have done wrong, he asks her;
“Baby, why are you quiet this evening, what’s on your mind?”
She says nothing is wrong and continues watching the movie but he doesn’t believe her, all sort of crazy thoughts start running through his mind. He asks again
“Are you sure nothing is wrong?”
She replies in the affirmative and this makes him more uncomfortable, then he starts apologizing for past, present and future sins, he also begins to ask forgiveness for unknown sins, the ones she wasn’t even aware of, for example;
“I am sorry for telling your sister, you are getting fat” or “I am sorry for lying to you about where I went on Sunday evening”.
Usually any of these confessions could result in a full blown argument, fight and other consequences because the man in a bid to fix what he thinks is wrong, begin to confess his unknown “sins”.
So this article is some supposed to give our husbands some consolation and let them know that a woman’s silence does not always mean something is wrong. She just might not feel like talking or she is thinking of other things that have nothing to do with you, I know it is hard for men to believe because they are fixers but it is true. A quiet woman is not always an angry woman but it is good to know that your silence can bring about confessions. Now what do you think, doesn’t this make a woman a confessor?
