"He that would live in peace and at ease must not speak all he knows or all he sees."

Benjamin Franklin


All I know for sure is that this is so true. We have to know when our own silence is golden. Maybe in a way it could be construed as a form of tact. There have been many times when I've wanted to reach out to someone, tell them about SP to help them, but then thought better of it and said nothing. What if they were already on Weight Watchers or Nutra System or some other plan?? They would really feel awful then, if I brought SP up to them. I never know where another person is on their journey, so I consider it 'unsolicited advice' and will wait to see if or when THEY bring it up. Then.....the time would be right!

    It is always hard to know how to approach someone without sounding judgmental or superior. You seem to handle it just right.
