Discretion: Choosing words and actions in a way that avoids offending others or revealing confidential information
Monitoring words and actions + considering the effects of your choices = discretion
People with discretion are careful and cautious, exercising tact and prudence. They are intentional and considerate in their communication and behavior.
Discretion requires caution, consideration, and contentment.
“Discretion is the perfection of reason, and a guide to us in all the duties of life.”– Walter Scott
