Being the INFJ that I am, my natural course is to be opinionated. I clearly define what I think, and then I yell it long and loud. I don’t always know how to explain it, but I spend a lot of time defending it. In my little world, everything would be so much better if we could all just speak from the heart and say what we really feel.

But I’ve acquired a useful gimmick from two people whose opinion I value a lot. It was put simply and clearly:

CB hun, you don’t always have to say what you think.

Life is so much easier once you learn to just shut up.

Yeah. Working on it 🙂

  1. I dont agree. What is correct though is that there is time for everything….but speaking up and being real with people, am with you on that

    I dunno dear. After recent events, I’m sticking with a time for silence, srsly!

  2. Either way, you cannot under stimate the power of words. They can make or break relationships.

    nodding vigorously**

  3. Sad, but true. In a perfect world, we should all be able to verbalize what we think, but others just can’t handle it.

    **still nodding vigorously**

  4. Guilty of always speaking my mind. Trust me it gets me into trouble more often than not, but that is me. Shutting up would not be true to myself.

    i feel that way too – about the not being true to self i mean – lakini ai, enough with the drama! i’ve found it’s easier on my blood pressure to rationalise silence than stress 🙂 so silence it is *wink*
