I read a blog entry the other day from blogging God Jerry Kennedy. Motivation 101 Blog (http://networkedblogs.com/gCm7q) It was the most honest thing I had read in years. It also made me think, what am I not saying?
We all run our mouths (some more than others). We have opinions on American idol singers, who lost a shoe on Dancing with the stars, how to fix the 17 Trillion dollar debt, but can’t tell our significant other that they look fat in that shirt. OK, they look fat and I don’t like that shirt. Why?
We tell ourselves we don’t tell them because we don’t want to hurt their feelings. If we do tell them, then we are just being honest. So we walk around as liars or a-holes. So while we say we don’t want to hurt their feelings, we really just don’t want to have a hassle.
So would you rather go through life with the people closest to you knowing how you feel (for real) or coasting through life with limited hassle?
