Break the Silence- A Contrarian Friend

When was the last time you really wanted (or needed) to say something, but kept quiet? Write a post about what you should’ve said.

I have a friend, somebody who rarely agree with the community and always question almost everything other say. Not that it is bad, but are are times when it’s not appropriate to do so, or let’s say he/she could be more sensitive to the environment. Curiosity is a good thing, but knowing how to satisfy the curiosity is more important than having the curiosity itself. There are ways that are acceptable in finding the answer, and there are the unintelligent ways.

Let’s say you are not supposed to ‘test’ your teacher by asking question he/she seems not to understand or know the answer. That makes the teacher defensive and shameful. I have told about this ‘problem’ to him/her before, but he/she is not too responsive with it. In fact, he/she do it again and again even after we (me and other friends) told him/her.

But now I prefer to stay silent and hope that one day he/she will realized what he/she did.
