“I didn’t like what I heard, but I didn’t say anything.”
“I wasn’t sure I agreed, but I thought it was best to keep quiet.”
“Everyone in the group was already on board; I didn’t want to be the only one to disagree.”
When you roll with it, go with the flow, or think you’ve disagreed by saying nothing, think again. People often read, hear, and see only what they want. Their efforts to build acceptance, gain a following, and discover evidence that supports their plan, goal, or ideology often develops from those who say nothing.
When you say nothing, you most likely convey agreement or acceptance.
Maybe it is time—say something.
