The power in silence
Silence is not empty. Silence is energy, it can be communication, and it can be more meaningful than words. Oftentimes our minds are nervous, anxious about how to say something and how to express what we feel. Oftentimes our minds struggle to understand and let others know that we understand.
But instead of all this anxiety in the mind, we have silence, the power of silence, that we can certainly use to our advantage. The quiet evening at home with people we care about. Choosing to hug instead of arguing and trying to be right. Just making your mind quiet and giving all that mental energy to listen to somebody else.
Words can convey the wrong message
It’s not unusual to say the wrong word or the wrong sentence in sensitive or emotional communication. Sometimes we don’t mean to offend or hurt somebody else, but our words may sound insensitive, impulsive, or even harsh. I have found that silence can be much more effective in communications. Coupled with the right attitude, silence can better relationships.
