The Beauty of Saying Nothing

Last time, I posted about the Il ber far niente - the beauty of doing nothing. Yes, it's beautiful to do nothing especially when you're feeling lazy. It is beautiful to just lay on your bed with your loved one, doing nothing at all, or maybe just talking about something, about anything under the sun. But then I also think that there's a beauty in SAYING NOTHING. Sometimes, some things are better left unsaid especially if you don't know exactly what to say. Words are confusing, words are misleading, and even though I am familiar with almost every word in the dictionary, words don't come that easy on me. It's the composition that actually sets the mood. If I don't get it right, I might ruin something.

BUT, saying nothing for a very long period of time is a NO. It's what you call silent treatment. Instead of treating something, you're making it worse because you don't face it. There's always something you've got to say about something.

What you have to do is to think - THINK! If  you don't have anything good to say, just shut up. If you don't think you're not ready to say anything, shut up. But don't be lazy, work on "being ready" to say something. Closure about a topic or scene is a must. Say what you need to say 'cause it's better to say too much than never to say what you need to say.

P.S. Tell your loved ones you love them. Tell it everyday. This is the most thing that shouldn't go in silence.
