Have you ever thought what is worse: Saying something and wish you had not; or saying nothing and wish you had?
The answer is it does not matter. What does matter is that your words and your actions are done with sincere and good intentions. Don't ever be afraid to reach out to someone. They won't care "how" you reached out…They will just appreciate that you did!
Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.
