I'm the worst at being able to say, "I'm upset with you." Not because of any fear of confrontation, but because I always feel like maybe what I feel is unnecessary. *shrug*We'll both work on it. Lor
Amen......Damn the repression and politeness!
Very true! Particularly when I'm angry with a friend, but can't bring myself to broach the subject because of trying to avoid a confrontation...
HAHA the most awkward one is when someone wants to wear the same thing and look like twins! I think you need to know how to distinguish when being honest may hurt the other person's feelings, and when it may not be a big deal. It might not be a good idea to tell someone their partner isn't cute, but you could always tell them you're not in the mood for chili's or more of an insider than an outsider..
I have students that are the exact opposite of you. They'll say whatever they're thinking whenever they want, politeness or appropriateness be damned. I think it's good to be nice enough not to say everything you think.
Ah, I think we all need a lesson in speaking our minds. (And I love your new style of cartooning!)
Lorraine: I'm the same way...Hopefully we'll get it right.CrazyCris: It always seems to be the case :/Jnana: True true. It is awkward I had to tell one of my friends that...she understood lolBrent: I agree it's nice, but at the same time it has caused a lot of issues with people around me :/Barb: Thank you!
