Feel intense empowerment as you have the strength to remain silent when silence is the wisest course of action. Your silence will not be passive, but an active silence that comes from self-mastery. As you remain silent, hear an inner cheer. Your silence requires as much skill as any Olympic athlete. It is a victory that deserves a standing ovation. Hear an inner voice saying, "I'm proud of your self-mastery to remain silent." Your silence is the mark of a champion!
(see Rav Pliskin's "Anger: The Inner Teacher," 340)
