In every communication, there is a moment where we decide whether to speak up or remain silent. Silence is power. It doesn’t mean we don’t have anything to say. It usually means the listener isn’t ready to hear our thoughts. Or there aren’t any words to describe how we feel so it’s best to pause. Or we know to stay silent when someone expects us to be ruffled. That is one of the most powerful ways to prove a point.
Sometimes it’s not worth our energy to waste words on others that don’t matter anyway.
Let us choose wisely in the words we speak today.
