STFU doesnt mean become a mute. It means dont say what you were going to say. However if your frame is lacking, to prevent that vomit of emotional puke from spilling all over her - shut your fucking mouth and say nothing.

  • You carefully measure how everyone will react.
  • You make sure nothing you say will cause anyone to think less of you.
