Silence is power . You’d realize that If you are in a relationship and more so just after an argument or the first date. The person who speaks first loses bargaining power. Silence is prudent. Someone at work often pulls me up for my eagerness to lay all the information out on the table for everyone’s consumption. He insists knowledge… Continue reading Politics of Silence – Part 2
