On learning when to keep my mouth shut

From the blunders I've made this past 3 weeks, I've learned that sometimes it does not pay to be forthrightly honest with everything. Especially not with certain persons who have unrealistic expectations. 

Silence is safe. Silence does not confirm nor deny. Silence is an opportunity to ponder.

And hence I've learned to be silent. It feels dishonest sometimes but it has become incredibly clear to me that I will not survive this internship if I am too honest.

It's just a hard fact of life.
