Silence

If you ever met me in person you would probably say “man she is really quiet.” I love people, I’m just naturally reserved and an introvert.

Because I’m so quiet, I’m really good at listening and catering to other’s needs. I have learned so much from just sitting and letting people talk & “be themselves.”

May I suggest the challenge of silence for a bit. You might be surprised to find it is pretty powerful.

To be clear it’s ok to respectfully say something. Talking freely is good and needed sometimes. As the saying goes you were given 2 ears and 1 mouth for a reason. Listening and hearing your environment should balance out speaking.

The one who has knowledge restrains his words,
and one who keeps a cool head
is a person of understanding.

Even a fool is considered wise when he keeps silent—
discerning, when he seals his lips. Proverbs 17:27-28
