Is it The Silent Treatment or Emotional Survival? Part 5, Post Script

Post Script: lastly, in this series on the difference between the harmful “silent treatment” and appropriate (emotional) “survival treatment,” this reminder and direction from the book of Ecclesiastes:

(There is) “a time to be silent and a time to speak,” (3:7).

When we face down enemy, we need to discern.

As one preacher noted, sometimes our words accomplish what needs to be done in a fray, but at other times it’s our silence that facilitates resolution. Image result for image with ecclesiastes chapter 3 public domain ***

    Thank you. The last year or so I have become much more “silent” and have greater peace. There truly is a time not to speak. God bless
