What ever happened to discretion?
Whether you are being circumspect with your speech, or in action, we now live in a world where private is public and where public is unlimited in the scope of social media. Freedom of speech, and the freedom to love whom ever you choose, and to just be, are wonderful things, however I find that in this race to be heard and seen, society has lost the ability to be in tune with others, and ourselves, unable to read social cues of what could be deemed to be inappropriate.
I tend to agree with Eloise James when she says that “ Discretion is a synonym for intelligence.” It’s the intelligence to know that not everything needs to be talked about, witnessed, or experienced publicly.
It is alright to know more then you say, think more then you speak, and notice more then others realize. Enough said. -tM
