    SILENCE IS POWER

    By Ms. A.J. Mahari (aka soul)

    Silence is power. Honest silence, that is. Don't ever use
    silence as a weapon -- that's violence. Be aware of the
    difference.

    But, staying silent in the face of false accusations or
    someone else's poorly expressed outrage can be powerful.
    It can be self-care. Life is noisy. We don't have to answer
    everything. Sometimes it is our silence and our lack of
    response that can make our limits clear.

    When those close to us hurt us or disappoint us
    communication can be key. But the more distant someone
    is from your "inner circle" or intimate friends the less effort
    they truly deserve in response to accusations, gossip, or
    drama.

    People talk behind our backs. Gossip is best met with
    an indifferent silence. If you run your own race in life,
    there will be no need to defend yourself.

    Be strong. Be courageous. Stick to your plan no matter
    what.

    Remember what peace there is in appropriate silence.
