Food for thought...  
Words only bring problems.
A life in silence? Would it be such a bad thing?
After all they always say that actions speak louder than words...

Silence
There is a silence where hath been no sound,
There is a silence where no sound may be,
In the cold grave--under the deep, deep, sea,
Or in wide desert where no life is found,
Which hath been mute, and still must sleep profound;
No voice is hushed--no life treads silently,
But clouds and cloudy shadows wander free,
That never spoke, over the idle ground:
But in green ruins, in the desolate walls
Of antique palaces, where Man hath been,
Though the dun fox, or wild hyena, calls,
And owls, that flit continually between,
Shriek to the echo, and the low winds moan,
There the true Silence is, self-conscious and alone.
-- Thomas Hood

a life in silence would be alright but not too good.
There are things which must be said, and can only be communicated by saying.
actions "speak" louder than words because they reinforce the words...but that doesn't mean it's not as important....

hope you'll feel better.
