Should we tell people what we REALLY think? (47)

Jun 27, 2020 3:01 PM CST Should we tell people what we REALLY think?
I'm torn between speaking my mind to a person and just say nothing.
Not sure how it could be taken by that person.
Do you think one should speak with total honesty even when the consecuence of that would be the end of all communication with that person?

Serious replies only, thank you. handshake

That surely would depend on whether it would bother you to lose contact with said person. It would also depend on the content of the conversation and if it is to their advantage or disadvantage .

Sometimes it's good to clear the air between people.handshake

Unless it involves your feelings, If the person can live without knowing what you feel reserved about mentioning to them and you value your relationship with them, why say anything?

It all depends on the importance of the subject both to you and the other party. Is it important enough to you to chance ending the communication/friendship? Only you can make that judgement.

From my recent own experience, speak your mind
I'll be kicking myself for the rest of my living days because I didn't or waited to do so.

For me definitely..I prefer verbal rather than typed words..I can't stand a bull shit artist who will agree with everything or be nice all the time then when that person does get all shitty that person will spill it's shit.

I'm allergic to pretenders.

Do whatever you wish - so long as you are willing to accept the consequences of your own actions.

What that means is that YOU must accept the responsibility for the outcome and DO NOT TRY TO BLAME the other person if they respond harshly towards you !

It's not exactly rocket science ~

In all kinds of relationships good communication is needed if you fear loosing someone over speaking honestly maybe they are not the right person for you. I always try to be honest with someone and if they don’t like it or listen to what you are saying then it’s time to walk away.

Recently, in a moment of anger, someone told me what was on their mind. It wasn't pleasant for me and I was hurt by their words. I haven't heard from that person since that day. I have tried to contact them but to no avail. I don't think they gave any thought to how badly their words would have an affect on me.

Someone in my family never filters anything she says and has said some hurtful things to me. I always let it go. Mainly because I don't like to argue with anyone but more so because if I said what I was thinking the consequence would be worse than what they said. So I pay the price and live with it.

Retaliation is only good for the moment. When you think about what you did you might be regretful.

In the forums when someone goes out of their way to insult me I take it with a grain of salt. It doesn't bother me because I don't know the poster personally.

I don't think you always need to say what you are thinking. Put those thoughts in a file cabinet in the back of your brain and let it stay there until the desire to speak up fades away.

They say that a truth told with bad intentions is worse, than a lie told with good intentions. I agree with it.

Ask yourself about your intentions. If they are good, you'll find the right way and the right words to tell your mind without hurting the counterpart.
