The Art of Silence

Updated on February 25, 2012

Ever wonder why they say that: "Silence is Golden"

It is very difficult to be silent when someone is playing with your emotions. Our Ego's tend to clash with that person and we are urged to speak and argue over that particular matter which we feel could be different 'cause we want it that way. We tend to open our mouths and then starts the relentless argument over a matter which in the coming days will be so fruitless.

What do we get out of it?

Sure, sometimes, we succeed in getting it OUR way and that pride sure makes us feel so GOOD. Isn't it?

There are times, when we don't succeed in that argument and end up so sad and dejected. What for? Did that change the world IF we lost an argument?

In a relationship

The Art of Silence for a partner is Bliss especially when you see the other partner loud and cannot be grounded. Silence is the key to happiness. It sure will take away the floor under you and the decision will be made but, it won't be for long. Humans are Social Animals and eventually the loud and unreasonable partner will realize that it is no fun to be playing alone thus, will come to your level to discuss any issue.


The Art of Silence is applicable even with a child and an adult. Children are innocent and thus, when it gets into their system to get anything they go on and on about it. Adults are mature and should not lose their temper over it. Instead, make the child understand about that the pros and cons about the thing he is stubborn about and then just keep quiet when being discussed in the house about it. Eventually, the Art of Silence will be understood by the kid as a NO and what better way to make him understand the concept!!


The same concept applies for an employee and his boss. Argument between them can only cause friction thus, accepting the Art of being Quiet when any such situation arises is the key to maturity. However, when the situation has cooled down, one should definitely make an attempt to get your message across to the other person (Boss/Employee)

My hub, Social Animal---takes us into the insight of our relationship with Man.

Man is a Social Animal and we like to seek company of another Man. Let's try to be civil to be each other and try to love thy man since; there is no life with out each other!

Humans cannot live without Humans and if we learn this Art of Silence our relationship with Humans will be improvised and we will be at peace. Our Ego's will not be shield when communicating with Humans and this liberation will make us so happy and stress free.

Give it a Try!
