We humans are challenged when it comes to keeping our mouths both open and shut!
When is it right to speak out?
When is it correct to step back and let the other person go at their own pace and discover their own truth?
How do we set that boundary for ourselves?
Ask yourself what your own beliefs are about this:

DANCE WITH IT! EXPERIENTIAL APPS
An opportunity to experiment with some fun ideas…
To help you find your own position about mouth open, mouth shut try the following dialog:
Imagine a conversation with two parts of yourself. You can use your hands as 'puppets' to make it easy.
Part One: "But, but, but… Shouldn't I say something if I know better than they do?"
Part Two: "Who says you know better?"
Part One: "Well, what they are doing is clearly wrong so…"
Continue the dialog until you either start to laugh or get one of those great 'ah ha!' moments.
