Why it’s Worth it to Hold Your Tongue

There you are again. You've found yourself in the same circle of female friends, and the conversation has turned to the same topic it always does when this particular group gets together: "He left the kids' bath towels on the floor again."

"Yep. Happens in my house all the time. I just can't get him to clean up after himself!"

"Well, at least your husband helps out with bath time! Mine would never dream of doing such a thing!"

You're at a crossroads. You know you have plenty of anecdotes to chip in to the complaint fest, but something is holding you back.

Does this sound familiar?
