Turn up the silence.

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. 

Proverbs 17:28

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.
