The art of staying silent

It’s weird. For an introvert I like to talk. In the right situations and to the right people which is an immature way of looking at it I know.

As I get older I’m learning, as the Bible says, that there are times not to speak also. I’ll be honest. This does not come naturally to me. I often find myself listening to reply when other people are talking or planning what I’m going to say or the point I’m going to bring up.

This is just one of the many bad habits I’ve acquired over my lifetime that I’m attempting to shed. I am realising that people don’t always need to know my opinion on something. Sometimes my opinion is not kind and in that situation it’s better to say nothing. Still learning though. Still get it wrong. Still will. I am trying though to tame my tongue. !
