Do we want it sugar coated, watered down or full flavored?
It seems like people say they want to hear the truth but they really just want a sugar coated, watered down version of it. What's the difference between the truth and a personal opinion? The truth can be sincere without being cruel but it also depends on the intent of the person delivering it. I've had people tell me that they are "telling me the truth for my own good" wtf is that because where and how I grew up wasn't like that. Being nasty to someone for their own good was just being mean. My problem is I tend to avoid saying anything (believe it or not) because I'm not good at sugar coating things but I don't want to hurt people's feelings. I think a lot of people feel that way. Communication isn't easy when we are all speaking a different language. It's sad because I have found myself even censoring what I say in this blog because I don't want to offend anyone or get into a confrontation with people who may take something I say personally. I started my blog as a kind of therapy. A way to express how I'm feeling. I've been asked to delete parts of my posts because it was too honest and someone didn't like how it made them look. I've gotten nasty emails when a blog hadn't been in reference to anyone in particular. So, if you read this and can't handle the truth, or my opinion on my blog, don't read it. If you want to disagree with me and my opinion, please keep it to yourself because this is my blog, not yours. Get your own blog where you can post your own sugar coated, watered down version of your truth. I promise not to comment or subscribe!
