Seems to me a lot of us have learned to put everyone else’s feeling before our own. We’re so afraid to “offend” anyone that we take more than we should. Often, it just results in suppressing until we explode, either verbally or when our health implodes.

We don’t have to be rude, but being honest doesn’t have to be done rudely. Just firmly.

Nice read — thanks!
