I imagine most people know what I'm talking about. Whether your spending time with someone you have known for years or just a short time, there will
always be either a comfortable silence or an uncomfortable silence.
When the silence between another person or people and yourself is so comfortable and you feel good just being in each others company... that is
precious to me.
When silence is between folks is uncomfortable, I feel anxious, then drained and slowly over time I feel like saying, ''can't you just shut up for
awhile!'' or call them a windbag.
Oh... how to say nicely... you talk to much. I mean the kind of anxious rambling that goes on and on where you start forgetting if there was even a
point or what the point is.
Detail in a story is good... don't get me wrong, but sometimes people just talk to fill the silence and or to hear themselves speak and I find it
very frustrating. I know many times some folks are going through tough times and their speaking becomes all frantic or chaotic as they try to grasp
onto a bit of happiness and share their thoughts, but it can be difficult when they don't realize what they are doing.
I always think of this scene ***with explicit language*** from Pulp Fiction when I have dealt with a needlessly talkative person,
This could very well be a rant but when I think of comfortable silence, I think of some of the best friends I've ever had and the good times we had
together just being around each other.
So, thank you for reading and would love to read anything you might like to add, agree with or disagree with.
