Sounds of Silence Week

Have you subscribed to Communication FUNdamentals’ RSS Feed?  Don’t miss a post! x Last week I shared about speaking up to praise and support and lift others up.  This week, I'd like to share a bit on just the opposite: when to keep silent.  Today I'm going to talk about when it's best to keep silent and on Wednesday, I'll talk about just how we can accomplish this. The Lord tells us that there is a time to speak up and a time to keep silent: "A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;" -Ecclesiastes 3:7  When are those times? * When you should be listening * When you might hurt someone's feelings * When you might say something hurtful * When you don't have all the facts * When you haven't thought things through * When you don't really have anything to say * When you are angry * When you are hurt * When you're POSITIVE he meant that in the meanest possible way! Remember the saying I posted a long while back, "You have the right to remain silent. Otherwise your words will be misinterpreted and used against you!"   When are the times you've wished someone would have chosen to remain silent?  Can you recall a time when you should have?  Are you uncomfortable with pauses in a conversation? x *SUBSCRIBE HERE*: For Even More Communication Fun, FREE Gifts and Exclusive Offers! x
