Silence can be...

Silence can be scary.
It makes us uncomfortable...
We rush to fill silence with conversation
Instead of simply paying attention to the present.
We think about the past and the future all in an instant.
 
Silence can be an opportunity.
An opportunity to connect with the moment,
An opportunity for gathering our thoughts and words.
An opportunity to acknowledge we’re unsure what to say.
An opportunity to show we want to be present.
An opportunity to listen.
 
Someone who is suffering may simply want
Someone to be with them
Someone to acknowledge their pain.
Someone to witness their experience.
Never underestimate the power of presence.
When you give someone your attention
You give them a precious gift.
