It’s hard being someone who says what they thinks – especially to their nearest and dearest!
A person who is straight up and honest is usually the first person to be cut down.
I gave some friendly dentist advice tonight and because it was new to me I was excited to share, however the person I gave the advice to said…. and your point is (and F*YK you Blah Blah Blah ?)
But I think we all have moments when we are bursting at the seams to say something but we don’t because we are worried it will offend someone.
I reckon, if you don’t want to say something, walk away and hope that the person in question hears it from someone else (cop out ) or will realise it by themselves.
But if you do make the decision to stand up and say what you think, then go at it with a vengeance and back it up (but only if you truly believe in the cause).
For example, in the past few years I’ve decided that I will only step up to a cause that I truly believe in.
And if someone has some great announcement then I’d rather here it in person than in a group, so I tend to shy away from group pow wows.
This is not to say that I don’t care, but from my POV I’d much rather speak one-on-one.
Have I digressed?
Of course I bloody have, but that’s because I am busy with my own boring life that I tend to ignore others and wander off on a tangent.
This is not to say that I don’t care about my friends, because I do.
Anyway I’ve gone way off topic now so I’ll end with this.
If a tree falls in the woods and no one was there to see it, did it still make a noise?
Cos that’s how I roll, like a train wreck 🙂
