DP Daily Prompt: Break the Silence

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

When was the last time you really wanted(or needed) to say something,but kept quiet? Write a post about what you should’ve  said.

There are times when silence is golden, but other times it is necessary to speak or write depending on circumstances. I am caught in this dilemma lately, I know it’s always important to use caution, but it can help others who may wonder if the reply presented by someone is right or wrong. When we don’t correct the know it all’s you are wrong in this case they will go home with the assumption, ” I know I’m right otherwise someone would have said, I am wrong.”

Let’s say such a person exists, how do we say you are wrong and some part of your writing is irrelevant too. This is the kind of thing that annoys me, sadly I pretend there is nothing to be afraid of, it’s only a mistake!

  1. Hmmmm interesting post.. We often keep quiet when others are hurting us or when they say something we don’t like. I recently stayed with family and they kept telling me that I’m too quiet, too nice etc. Etc. Kept making comments on what they thought was wrong with me. At times I felt like telling them that I didn’t like it, however I decided to stay quiet instead..

    Much love x

    • I hear you Shaidi, it’s not for family but something else. Since silence is golden I’ll observe it, even though I disagree this time.
      I miss hearing from you,you must be busy, nice to see you,your story of Laila Majnu is awesome. I love Halwa, it’s so delicious.

      • Awhh yeah I agree. Silence indeed is golden… And beautiful!!

        Awhh yeah I’m sorry, I have been busy. Recently moved to another country, so take a time to settle down. We should catch up one day 🙂 I am glad you like my story, that means alot to me! N halwa is indeed delicious haha, haven’t had it in a while. Could use some! ❤

  2. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this post.

    “Correcting” others can be quite challenging. Our Iqbal studies come to mind now, with the Aligarh principle. I think a deep and sincere empathy is necessary for all of this.

    All good wishes,
