So I’ll Say Nothing

Sometimes the struggle isn’t in figuring out how to say something.

It’s in staying quiet

When there’s nothing to say.

  1. This is certainly the truth! I have been to therapy sessions when nothing was said for half of the appointment. Then, of course, I would get uncomfortable with the silence and say something. Always wanted to just be comfortable with the silence. LOL

    It also helps you not say something you’ll regret later! Especially when we deal with husbands and kids.

  3. Boy, that’s sure it for me. There are way too many times when my mouth has a mind of its own and I wished I had kept it shut. With aging, it is getting better but still… πŸ˜‰

    • Funny you say that about aging. My grandma, in her eighties, told me that she was at the age where she should be able to say whatever she wanted and NOT have to worry about it. πŸ˜‰

  4. Amen. I’ve learned to bite my tongue. A lot! πŸ™‚

  5. Oh yes, if only I took that advice more often!!

    So true. It’s not always easy to remain silent. It’s a wise person who knows when it’s time to speak and when it’s time to be quiet. πŸ™‚

    My jaw flaps on instinct, my buddy Colleen, so I know of what you speak. Restraint.

    I should learn how to say nothing when I have nothing to say. Lord, give me patience.

    Now that feels so good Colleen! Thank you for this space between thoughts and words πŸ™‚

  13. Doing nothing can be wise at times too.

  14. It’s maturity and knowledge, knowing when to say and not to say..oh and patience ..did I mention patience? ☺️

    Nothing can mean something to someone, since it may include listening…
