The purse being referred to is one that carries the concealed emotions of silent cries, quiet hurts, and loud pains. Men and women, the young and the old, carry this particular item. Our lives are like purses in so many ways, even without physically carrying one. So many people have personal stories too hurtful and shameful to disclose.

People may keep their feelings concealed and shielded from others, while carrying heavy burdens that could have a lasting effect not only on the victim, but also on their loved ones. Some accessories that can be found in peoples’ invisible purses are loneliness, depression, low self-esteem, abuse, rape, or even fear.
