The Loud Silence

Sometimes, silence can be so loud like a bomb.

Living in silence doesn't mean we're free from all the judgments that might be thrown to us. We can't stop other people's mind from thinking about why we are not saying a word, and that will lead them to conclude on such things that might not be true.

Others say that silence is powerful because that's when peace comes along. But, I think it can only be a peaceful one once we practice self-love or if we are with someone who can fully understand without us saying a word. However, it's rare for a people to know what we're thinking or why we are acting that way.

The problem with silence is that we can't control or stop someone from their judgments/interpretations towards us. They can easily fill our silence with such interpretations that are far from the truth.

SILENCE MEANS YES

We always hear this phrase, saying that if someone asked a yes or no question, being in silence means we are saying "yes" automatically. But, I beg to disagree with this one.

Being in silence doesn't mean we are agreeing to what has been said, because sometimes not saying a word means we are not in favor at all yet we are scared or shy to vocally express our thoughts.

I hope, this thing should be cleared upon and not be normalized since there are people who are just so ambiguous to understand without their words yet we can't fully blame them because what if they have their reasons why they aren't vocal with their feelings?

Silence means we are just being careful with our words. We don't want to throw such words that might be harmful to others, so we remain silent to protect ourselves and other people. But, it doesn't mean that we are allowing them to interpret it as a yes or something that means we're in favor.

SILENCE MEANS WE'RE SHY/INTROVERT

Although this can be partly true, but not all people remain in silence because they are shy or they possess an introvert personality. Some people choose to be quiet not because they are shy to say a word, but because they think they're in a wrong crowd where a word can be easily misinterpreted.

In addition, some remain quiet because they don't want to cause or expand such problems. If they think their words are not necessary and can show toxicity, they eventually shut themselves so they won't harm anyone, emotionally. And I think, that's something commendable.

There are many risks of being in silence, yet we don't have to worry about it if we start protecting our peace from others' own interpretation why we remain to be quiet. It doesn't matter if they think our silence means we are in favor, bored, depress, stuck up, and among others. No matter how loud their interpretations are towards our silence, the truth hold nothing but the truth and others don't have the power to change it. If we know to ourselves the real reason behind our silence, others point of view could be disregarded especially if those aren't necessary at all.

But still, these wrong interpretations shouldn't be normalized. We should always remain understanding and compassionate with everyone, whether they're in silence or not.


CLOSING THOUGHTS

Silence can be beautiful because for someone who fully love himself/herself, it is something that will bring him/her to the realm of peaceful living. We don't have to worry about what others might say. Silence means we choose to be at peace despite how loud other people's judgments.

True, amy. Silence doesn't always mean yes. Sometimes, silence is just a way of showing that we are not interested at all haha

Exactly po. Kaya we should be more understanding to the thoughts and feelings of others, hindi yung paladesisyon tayo lagi. hahaha

Totoo po minsan nami-misinterpret nila na agree tayo kapag hindi tayo sumasagot sa mga sinasabi nila pero sa totoo lang po ay hindi tayo sumasagot dahil hindi natin gusto o hindi tayo agree sa sinabi nila.

Kaya nga eh, ayaw lang natin sumagot minsan kasi baka makapagbitaw din tayo ng hindi maganda especially pag hindi tayo agree sakanila.

When I was super saya or medyo malungkot, mas prefer ko maging silence ate rather than voicing out my opinion about a certain matter baka po kase may masabe akong di maganda or may maipangako ako na something eh.

I can relate to that. Kaya mas maganda po talagang manahimik unless we're emotionally stable.

This. When I am overwhelmed by my emotion, I always choose to be silent. Panget kasi yung mangyayari kung magsasalita ka ng puno ng emosyon. Kaya agree ako sa article mo maam :))

Sabi nga nila, we should only express our thoughts if we're emotionally stable, so that we can't burst something negative. Anyway, thank you po.

Yes, especially when it is done in a classroom, a teacher may ask if his students understand and there's no response it means Yes..

One beautiful thing about silence is that you won't know the mind of the person. I'm a very silent person. I don't make noise, I let my skill make the noise for me. Silence is so beautiful❤
