Idiom : ‎”to HOLD MY TONGUE”

To ”hold my tongue”.

This means not to speak although you may feel like yelling or stating your opinion.


”My boss came into work this morning & started yelling at everyone in the office! I wanted to yell back at him, but I held my tongue because I didn’t want to be fired from my job. I need my paycheck.”

Or:  ”My mother yelled at me for coming home late last night. I held my tongue and didn’t yell back because I respect my mother.”

Have a nice day everybody, Cindy
