ASK THE MUTTERERS

Do I value my opinion enough to be Honest with You?

I say things because I know they’ll make you feel better, not because I always mean them. I feel it’d hurt you to hear my honest opinion about you always. Does it mean I don’t care? Does it make me a terrible person?

How do I expect you to feel when you tell me you’re fed up with life and rather than encourage and give reasons to hold on strong I tell you “You know you can just die right now? Do you need options? Moreover, the world will have one less person to worry about.” ‎

I’d rather that I keep my opinion to myself because I don’t want anyone pointing fingers when things go wrong, cause things always go wrong either way. I love my peace of mind better. ‎

There’s always that one different opinion

Ever been involved in an argument or conversation about someone or something and you’re super convinced that everyone talking is saying things under the influence of “I don’t want anyone to think of me as a bad person”?? And maybe you’ve been there too. Does it mean you don’t value your opinion enough, to be honest with everyone, even if it’s dreadful?

Something you just have to tell people what they want to hear, not what they need to hear.

Sometimes I don’t tell people the truth because I don’t want to be the reason why they gave up on their dreams or the reason why they felt bad about themselves.

But sometimes, when things fall apart, I can be brutal with my candour.

Saying the wrong things to someone in times of distress may lead to depression, sometimes it’s just better to say what the person wants to hear or needs to hear at that timr

There’s something called emotional intelligence. It’s the ability to understand people’s emotions instantaneously, and be able to discern the most appropriate things to say to them. The truth is not always the most intelligent thing to say after all.

Well, considering 2 things…

1; People hear what they want to hear and call it the truth.

2; Same person you’re being careful not to offend with words might not have a second thought before hurting you.

So judging from this point of view, I say it as it is but using my head as not to make the damage too collateral or make you feel effect of the ‘venom’ immediately as the case may be… 😜
