Whether we mean to or not, we all make waves at some point in our lives. Whether it be at work, with friends, or in a relationship, someone always has to make an unpleasant decision (unless of course you’re just being a twit, then you deserve what you get). You may not always have the best point of view, best opinion, or best outlook, but as long as you are honest, believe in what you say and always mean what you to say, it is hard for me to find fault with someone.
I find most people have a problem with just saying what they think or feel. Or they don’t know how to say it. Or they are scared of the reaction. More often than not, I have the habit of saying what I think and feel. I believe in honesty and if you have something to say, say it. If you’re not sure if it’s necessary, then wait until you are sure or forget it.
Several people still operate under the mentality of their youth, when it was hard to be honest with their parents when they knew they were wrong. All that could be seen were consequences. Many adults I know still behave this way. They are more scared of your reaction or the issue that might arise than they are of being true to themselves. I try to ask them to let go of their fears and dive right in. You never know where honesty might take you. What’s the worst that can happen?
Unless there are sharks in the water.
