Allow Silence for Reflection

Allow Silence for Reflection 

Not all communication is verbal, sometimes silence provides the space needed to process. 

"We’ve all experienced awkward silences. While it may seem counterintuitive to let moments of silence occur, sometimes it’s the best choice. It can give a person a chance to reflect on what’s happening, and how they need to proceed. Silence can be a powerful communication tool." -Crisis Prevention Institute
