Silence is powerful if you use it correctly at the right time.
When you find yourself invited to a new place, room, or gathering etc., the best thing you can do for yourself is be silent and learn your surroundings.
Learning your surrounding is key to knowing how to deliver or act in a new environment.
Resist the temptation to proof that you deserve to be there or that you belong there but keep silent long enough to know where you are.
Silence will help you understand how the people in that room function, what is appropriate and what is not.
Don’t put yourself in a position where you get disqualified from that room right before you even qualify to be there.
