The Power of Silence, Part 2.

Not quite an extension of my previous blog, more of a different angle.

I have learnt through my life, that silence can sometimes be an answer.

It’s a fact.

You don’t always have to get the last word in, although there is some satisfaction to that. Every once in a while, if you don’t agree with someone, or if answering is going to cause an argument, just keep your mouth shut. Easy.

For instance: “Sweetie, I’ve been thinking… I think my mother must come and live with us.”

Silence.

Or: “I’ve been thinking… Don’t you think we need to get a new car Angel?”

Silence.

See, easy!! It’s a bit like ‘do what you want’, or ‘whatever’, only better.

Also, you don’t have to ‘win’ every argument – winning an argument is sometimes actually losing an argument. So, if you think about it, sometimes by avoiding an argument, you win. Does that make any sense to you?

But anyway, I have learnt there is power in silence, and it is wise to use it every now and then.

Try it sometime. 😉

oh yes…
