I'm becoming beyond tired of the folks who love to proclaim to be professors of truths, lovers of having the truth told to them, doers of all things in the name of honesty. If you are going to profess the truth, tell the WHOLE truth. That includes the TRUE version of BOTH sides of the story so that when people offer to give you an honest opinion and advice they can give it based off of accurate information. And even better, when someone is hurt by your actions and tries to share that with you, don't distort their feelings to make yourself feel better. Playing the "I know you feel this way, but..." game gets tiresome. It constantly discounts another persons feelings as if they don't matter at all. Sometimes the truth includes admitting when you've done something wrong/hurtful to someone and trying to make it right even when it makes you feel like crap about yourself for a little while. And sometimes, the truth is something you just don't want to hear. And sometimes, that same truth hurts a little and can be a tough pill to swallow.
I will step off my soap box now.
