The Elephant in the room

The elephant in the room, reminds me of the time when controversial issues are present in conversations. They are there just waiting to pop out and make you realize that what you are about to say could have so much more meaning than what you’re thinking. Everybody knows how big an elephant is and often in today’s time controversy sells big.

To me the elephant in the room symbolizes something controversial. It’s there but nobody is willing to actually show their elephant. We are more worried about what people are going to think about us if we are for or against an issue. Sometimes it’s good to point out this elephant and hopefully this animal could help us think critically and provide us with a platform of mutual understanding. So unleash the elephant and tell me what the response was.
