BLOG | Quiet, Please

Would you agree that sometimes we talk too much? I've been thinking about this a great deal. I mean, it's natural for us to want to relay our point of view, right?. After all, that's what life is about, an exchanging of information, a give and take. That's how relationship is built.

But why do we feel the need to share our opinion on everything under the sun? Would you agree that sometimes we just need to sit back and listen, absorb what is going on around us? Social media, for all its benefits, has turned us into self absorbed people who wear our emotions on our sleeves. Let's be better.

 

From one of my favorite films, Vivre sa vie,

Why must one talk? Often one shouldn’t talk, but live in silence. The more one talks, the less the words mean.”

-Anna Karina

 

James 1;19

“My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak.”
