A Shared Silence

Silence and pauses in conversation can be unnerving and awkward, but what would happen if we chose to embrace the lulls more often with a loving heart?

Many of us were raised in homes where there was a constant influx of background noise, questions, bickering, nagging, commenting, reminding—and the list goes on.
This nostalgic soundtrack can leave an unsettling feeling into adulthood when nothing has been said for a few moments.
A tendency to fear silence may result in junk-food variety filler statements, noisy, fidgety sighs, and idle gossip. Try to savor a shared silence.
