You know not to post when.....

1) the frustration you feel might come off as extreme selfishness
2) it would do nothing to solve the problem
3) it would just add fuel to a fire that shouldn't be burning
4) you know everyone would try to figure out who you are talking about and they may just figure it out making all run-in situations slightly, if not intensely awkward

SO .......
-choosing to remain silent may be the best thing,
-choosing to love no matter what the circumstance or "feeling" may be the right thing,
-choosing silence over verbal diarrhea probably truly best......

So tell me then, why is doing the right thing sometimes so hard?! ah yes isn't there that saying somewhere that goes something like this "Speak in anger and it'll be the best speech you'll ever regret!!" So then it is DONE...I choose silence!!

DISCLAIMER: for all of you trying to figure this out don't bother you are all on the wrong track....remember I chose not to post about it ;)

brilliant post. thank you.

just what i needed to read. i HAVE ALWAYS made the choice to be tactfully silent. i MAKE a compassionate decision NOT to have verbal diarrhea and possibly hurt others with my tongue. i think it; i feel it; i have been taught and make the choice to be a lady; to be fiercely loyal to my self worth.

(i do roll my eyes when i think no one is looking but i need at least ONE OUTLET)

constantly misunderstood while taking my silent position, i sit back and listen, knowing it is 98% untrue, but knowing that it is not up to ME to point out the truths.

it is tough. it is hard.

i am sure i may be off base from where/what you are posting about but MAN THIS FELT GOOD!!

ahhhhh. bet you didn't know it would be therapeutic for others.

mmmmmm... Verbal Diarrhea...
Nice words. Good-on-ya for holding back. You would only sit there in regret.
You rock chick...
I have to say that I am in the same place, but I have kept my mouth shut and I guess I'll have to keep it shut forever. It would only cause harm to others.

I'm sorry you are feeling so frustrated. I hope everything works. Good for you choosing to remain silent even though it would probably feel better to vent. I feel like venting about stuff today and I too am choosing silence : ) (((hugs)))

Rose said...

Way to go Louise, showing grace that's not always easy to do and you are choosing to...that's very admirable I'm proud to call you my Sister! Love you and miss you!

Roo said...

mmmmm such a good post. the thing that i intensely dislike about WORDS is that people will always misinterpret what you are actually saying. everyone filters it through their own filter and no filter is the same.

hope your your heart is filled with peace today. xoxo thinking about you....

Roo said...
