Silence

Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself.~ Harvey Fierstein

Silence is perhaps one of the most misunderstood states. I can be silent because I’m angry. I can be silent because I’m thinking. I can be silent because, well, I have no words.

Don’t mistake my silence for acquiescence. I’m thinking. I’m feeling. I’m trying to formulate a response. It may seem like I’m ignoring you. I might be 🙂

Silence is time. Time to come up with a response. Time to consider an appropriate response. Time to decide if I need to respond. Time I need to make sure I don’t blurt out something. Precious time.

Be patient. Give me time. I’ll let you know when I have something to say. Or, not.
