Shut Your Mouth!
A rule that everyone should remember is to keep their mouth shut. I have learned this all too often the hard way… My trouble is that I am quick to form ignorant opinions on many topics and issues and unfortunately I am also too quick to speak about them. This is, of course, a downfall: My mouth condemns me to social purgatory.
The problem is easy to fix: Keep my mouth shut! Society really doesn’t want to hear all the sides of a discussion. No, society only wants to hear its side… To interject ideas of the contrary only produces a backlash of emotions none of which are kind. In the attempt to reduce the emotional distress of others, I have decided to withhold my opinions on all matters. Instead, I will smile and make comments only to myself. No one cares what I think or believe, anyways, so I will write my rubbish thoughts on paper and keep my mouth shut.
