The fear of silence

Endless chatter. TV playing in the background.

Is there really something so scary about silence that people feel the need to avoid it at all costs?

Are we so afraid to actually think that we have to do something (anything) to avoid the opportunity of real thought?

When having a discussion are we afraid that if there is silence the other person will think we aren’t interested or possibly aren’t smart enough to participate?

Silence can be relaxing, soothing, calming and enjoyable. Don’t be so afraid of it

Have a great day!
