What are the consequences of silence?

A passiveness that can speak volumes. Giving up your turn because the fear of not being understood rises up inside of you. Hours of regret, constrained to you like your shadow. And a lot of “what if’s?”

  1. Alessandro, I think that the phrase “A passiveness that can speak volumes” is very telling and poetic. It’s fascinating that you linked silence with passivity. Does this mean you equate noise with activeness or activity? Moreover, I can completely relate to being afraid of being judged when I speak. That is so often why I am silent. It’s definitely a fear and obstacle of mine that I would like to overcome. Thank you for your thoughtful words, Allesandro.
