I say things sometimes that hurt people’s feelings. I don’t mean to, sometimes I think something and the words just come out. I realize when its too late and the words have already escaped, I watch them as they float through the air into the persons ears, I watch the upset and hurt in the persons eyes and then watch the persons body language change. I don’t do it often and only when I feel its justified.
I’m quite brash and opinionated. I don’t know how not to be. I say what’s on my mind and sometimes people don’t like that. Some people don’t mind, they know what they are getting with me. I’m not a nasty person, although it may appear that way at times. Is there a difference between being outspoken and just being rude?
Is it better to say what’s on your mind, even if it risks upsetting someone? Do we have to be selective with who we are honest with? I’ve asked this before and will again, is honesty the best policy?
I don’t know what this post is about, just something on my mind.
