Silence is golden. Really! It is wonderful, I love silence probably because I was an only child, raised by my grandparents. Our house was always quiet.
Then SURPRISE! I had three kids and it wasn’t silent ever, especially when they were babies. Actually, until they turned into teens/preteens it was loud all the time.
Now that they aren’t here much, or if they are here they are off in their own bubbles listening to music or playing games, maybe even occasionally doing homework it is quiet again.
I have no problem with silence, but I know there are some people who can’t stand silence. Riding in an elevator, standing in line, even working in a cubicle some people have to fill the silence with talk or music.
What is odd, is my mother, who is an only child too, always has the TV on. She isn’t a compulsive talker and certainly can sit in silence except when she is at home, then the TV is on all the time.
I can’t imagine that. I love the silence, even at work. Yes, sometimes I have the radio on, I do enjoy the boost music can give to your energy levels.
So do you prefer silence or do you like it noisy?
