Often, people are either considered quiet or loud, outspoken or soft-spoken, outgoing or introverted. And there a few like me – a mix of both.
Why is being quiet so looked down upon? Rather than thinking they are too cowardly to speak, people should be respectful of their preference to stay silence. Those that choose to speak or want to will. Some people’s silence is what makes them most comfortable, and to look down on someone for that is pitiful.
You can’t criticize someone’s silence until you’ve heard their inner voice.
