DANGER! SILENCE MAY PROVOKE THINKING, by Art Smukler, author & psychiatrist

I’m not kidding!

When was the last time you drove in your car without the radio, Sirius or a book on CD?  It can be dangerous driving without background noise, because it forces one to actually listen to the voice in his own head.

Is the voice saying you’re angry or unhappy or in love? When it finally registers what it’s saying, that’s when the fun or the trouble starts. Understanding your feelings is the beginning of potentially making decisions that can change your life. Improve your marriage? Start a new business? Have that long avoided heart-to-heart with a friend?

All is possible, and change, when understood and carefully examined, can be a wonderful experience — or not. Let the silence in. It will be filled with the words that come from a place you may have been avoiding.
