It's a strength, not a weakness.

This is one for those of you out there who often get frustrated by people who are more than willing to be outspoken, more than willing to be blunt and direct.

Because sometimes it's just worth reflecting that that may not actually be a sign of courage or strength. Sometimes, the harder choice, the more restrained choice, the thing that takes most courage, is to shut it and not express the opinion. I'm not suggesting that we allow ourselves to be rolled over, that we don't speak up when we need to.

Sometimes the perception is that the people who speak and shout the loudest, are the bluntest, the most direct, are the strong, brave, courageous people. And actually, they may lack the strength to keep it shut.
