I’ve becoming increasingly aware how uncomfortable most people are with silence.
I remember being told to “count to ten” before reacting to something important. I’ve employed this more and more of late. What I’ve learned is that people start to panic by the time I get to four. My “thinking” face must look very similar to my “disapproving” face because when I wear it I hear a lot of backtracking and argument. I’m going to work on that.
