I think this can be one of the hardest things to do… to keep silent and say nothing. It is human nature to want to respond to something negative or to defend yourself, a friend or family member.
As I have grown older, I have found that my silence says more than words. In fact, it can be the most powerful thing we can do.
Next time you think you need to respond to something, think whether it would be more powerful to not say anything.
