This is something my mom has taught me. She emphasized the fact that if I have nothing nice to say, then I should just stay silent.
Now, I try to do this…but I’m opinionated and it doesn’t always work.
Well, her advice has come in handy, because she is a wise woman and becomes more and more wise the older I get. I think she always has been wise but I haven’t been wise enough to appreciate her wiseness. (Did I use wise, enough?)
So, silent…I shall be.
What advice have you gotten as a child?
