Never pass by the opportunity to SHUT UP

I only meant it to either keep quiet or silence oneself. If you notice, everything around you is noisy: The TV is never quite, the computer has this almost unnoticeable noise inside it, the air-con never stops its blowing noise until I press the off button on my cute remote, the people are always opening their mouths from answering phones to yawning so loud I wanna throw my shoe down their throat to arguing with spouses or scolding kids. In other words, yeah, I am living in the city and maybe the country side would be the only place to give me the quiet that I needed. But that is not what I want to talk about too. lol. I guess you really read those things I placed there. Well, sadly that's still the introduction... Well, seriously, the things mentioned below is what I really mean... Sometimes, opening ones mouth can hurt other people, so before one does that it's better to shut the offending thing first and think of the consequences. Be sensitive to the one who'll be receiving your message and maybe you'll end up understanding each other more than the other option of letting your tongue free with it's knives and bullets and spit it like a machine gun. Most of the time its words that hurts more than mortal wounds because it hurts not only our way of thinking but our emotions and beliefs as well. Take note, a human's emotions are found in the brain as well. Words have the tendency to embed itself in ones memory compared to scars received on the skin. So it's people's words, especially from the loved ones, that can really drive a person to take ones life more than the other problems even if you pile them all up together. Words are very powerful tools. It can be a weapon used to destroy or protect. It can also be healing but at the same time damaging. It's a double edged sword that knows no master and it's up to the wielder how to use it to prevent it from hurting oneself more than what's necessary. In the Philippine history, the Filipinos rebellion against the Spaniards started with Dr. Jose Rizal's used of words(though according to Filipinos, his weapons are pen and paper, but I know its his words that he held in his hands with the intention of NOT making a rebellion that most misunderstood). Happy MyLotting!

There is a time to speak and there is a time where it is for the best that you keep your mouth firmly shut. I think that a lot of people engage their mouths before they engage their brains. Sometimes, that little filter in our brain that tells us whether or not this is a good or bad idea to say, is sometimes mostly busted to say the least. A few words can stir up a storm. It can lead to a breach that cannot be healed in any way whatsoever. It is just something that is a huge problem to say the very least. There are times where words are the most powerful weapon. Sometimes its just best to remain mute, if there is even the smallest doubt in your mind that what you're saying might not be a good idea at all.
