You can listen a lot better when you’re silent. Not everything deserves your time and attention and not everything requires your voice. I remember as a child my mother taught me that if you don’t have anything good to say, then don’t say anything at all.
Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues.
Don’t allow how you feel to dictate how you speak. You can take back a lot of things but once you speak, you cannot take those words back. Choose your words carefully or turn up the silence.
