Silence. Quiet. These words identify what most are afraid of, the stillness. The silence can be deafening when you are not comfortable in it. When you are afraid of what your thoughts can manifest into, quietness doesn't seem pleasant. The stillness that comes about from silence can bring more than awkwardness and discomfort. Embracing the silence can be therapeutic and can bring peace in your daily life. Think about the many times you have filled the silence around you with music, conversations with friends, or even television. Now imagine if you took those quiet moments and relaxed, process emotions and work through any inner conflicts which can bring you peace.
