A gentle tongue can break a bone.
In my POV, the silent treatment is less effective than a mild tongue. To effectuate positive change(s)…is ignoring the person and/or the problem (indefinitely) a mature course of action/non-action?! Gentle speech even when under provocation can have better results.
A mild* gentle answer turns away rage,
But a harsh* painful word stirs up anger. Proverbs 15:1
(Sometimes, i analyze/wonder IF certain areas/aspects of my life/relationships would improve IF i was a better communicator?) Gentle and compassionate communication certainly contributes to PEACE!
We all contribute to (emotional) climate…may be the ultimate climate control is a mild tongue!:)
PEACE always Reader:)
i’ll contribute to the quiet/serenity and shut up now;)
