About six weeks ago I found myself in a conversation that drifted into a topic that made me a bit uncomfortable.
I listened carefully and at one point thought I was going to have to respond, or more accurately, push back. But just as I was preparing to make my case, I had a strong gut feeling that I should remain quiet.
And that is what I did.
One day last week it became clear that staying quiet was exactly what I needed to do.
There is a time to speak out, no doubt; but there is also a time for silence.
I’m thankful I got it right, at least this time.
