to Mumble or to Tumble out

If there is one line from Fight Club that I feel nails the philosophy of life, it is this.

All a gun does is focus an explosion in one direction.

We think, we think more...we overthink...
but more often than not, we don't talk...
we bottle it up...

All it takes is a trigger...
for it to all come tumbling out...
and then, we suddenly start saying things...... 
which...
we never would have..

leading to an impact and a recoil...
neither of which is desirable..

It's okay to count to 10 and backwards before you start talking... but there has to be a limit to which you keep swallowing your words.

  1. There absolutely has to be a limit to how much a person will stay quiet. I personally have *always* benefitted when I spoke after the limit got crossed over.

    1. But speaking after breaching a personal limit tends to lead to outbursts instead of meaningful discussions and healthy debates.
