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 🙂
