Keeping My Mouth Shut-2

I am proudest of the fact I have learned to keep my mouth shut. I don't feel the need to respond, or have an opinion about most things like I once did. Whether I know a lot about the subject or not, I am choosing to keep my shut.

I have come to this conclusion for several reasons: 1) My marriage has been much better since I have learned to choose my battles, 2) I have accepted that even though I may be right, folk just ain't ready to hear the truth, 3) It keeps others from seeking me out. I have found that when I speak out people want to take advantage of the fact and will actually bring subjects to me to try to get me to voice their opinions.

Keeping my mouth shut has become a practice I actually enjoy.
