It is a fine talent that is fast disappearing. Holding your tongue.
The time honored question...say what you think or hold your tongue.
Do you put someone in their place or hold your tongue?
Do you call someone out or hold your tongue?
Do you tell someone off or hold your tongue?
What is at risk if you don't?
Family relations, employment. So much more.
I have been put to the test countless times. With my in-laws, my new job, buffet religous zelots.
My poor tongue. It hurts.
