For every act of evil, there is an act of beauty. You Can't Change the World, Only Your Attitude Towards It.

Quiet Loud Mouth

One being quiet, the other so talkative. The talkative one feels uncomfortable in the presence of the quiet and begins to jibe.

"hey, shut up" he says sarcastically. "Less chat" he smirks.

The quiet one is likely to wish to react in a way of say this:

"Most of what comes from your mouth is pointless garbage, shut up"

but quietness remains and it passes.

Neither are wrong, both are being themselves. The quiet one more rooted and the loud one more attached and directed by the whims of a ceaseless mind.

Love it. I have co-created this situation over and over again, increasingly so, and consistently the less I say, the more is said.
