Reflect Out Loud

"The unexamined life is not worth living." – Socrates



Comfortable With Silence

It’s beautiful to stand here in this moment and simply exist with you. 
Why do we feel like we need to fill space with conversation all the time?
Quiet elevator rides aren’t awkward. They’re an opportunity for us to share a space and just exist without having to say anything.
Why can’t we just be in silence without feeling pressure to have a conversation?
Why can’t we just co-inhabit this space?
Silence isn’t awkward. It’s beautiful. And I don’t mind just sharing this space with you.


Silence is a response. You don’t always have to engage in further conversation. You don’t have to agree or deny. You don’t have to say anything at all.
