I looked at him and said there are tiny elephants in the room. He said they were only small and we should ignore them. 
Over time, the tiny elephants became large elephants as that is what happens to tiny elephants. The room slowly became asphyxiating and yet he could not bring himself to talk of the elephants. 
I stood up and said: ‘I want to talk about these elephants. They are big and scary, but please let us talk about them’. 
He opened his mouth to talk, but tiny elephants came out instead. I looked at him and realised he was the most scary elephant of all.

  1. This reminds me of Terry Kettering’s Elephant in the Room. Did you use that as inspiration. Somewhat curious how the same analogy applies to death and the end of relationships
