#12: “Talk less. In all spaces. At all times. At a lower volume.”
This spoke to me so much! Men continually speaking at all times and without value in a frenzied effort to distance themselves from the fear of other voices. They’ve lost nothing as the groups they marginalized and attacked climbed out of oppression but fear thy may be subject to their own horrors and so, they scream into the voids, terrified, and without introspection or substance. If they could befriend introspective silence, they would find worth and ability. If only they could shut up for five seconds.
