I'mthisclose to withdrawing from everything, more so than I already have.

Is it a felony to be blunt and speak how you feel? I'm always open to listening to what others have to say, but apparently I alienate many people by just speaking my personal opinion. I've never thought "It's my way or the highway".

I don't know what to do anymore. Maybe that's why I'm still a nobody.

It really shouldn't be. I keep thinking immediately that it isn't wrong to speak what you feel. But ten I swing widly to the other way that we should be socareful about how what we say affects other people. It's very hard to find a balance with people, between acceptance, politeness, and holding onto yourself, being strong and defiant with who you are. And since all of that is my own thoughts, maybe it should be who "I" am...

I don't know. Idon't have any answers. *hugs* ♥

Okay let's try this again... my words kept getting eaten replying in my e-mail client...

I have more tact than people think, they don't realize how much I do hold back in saying.

But something has to be spoken from the thoughts in my head, and I am never purposely mean (ie: OMG YOU LOSER).

People say things to me that "offend" me... but I try so hard not to take it personally. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. People are just too sensitive these days.

I said what I think and it does hurt people's feelings at times. This puts me in an ackward position because I am a pastor's wife and everyone assumes that I am going to be sweet and silent. I try to spare feelings when I can and it largely depends on my mood, but I do have a bold personality at times and strong convictions to go with it. I've found that those that know me, know that I care about them and mean no ill towards them and that's what is important to me. I don't think that we should be responsible for personally catering our speech to suit those around us though. I think that would make us fake, don't you? Say what is on your mind. I've found that the tone of my voice has a lot to do with whether people get offended or not. You can still say what you want and not offend if you have the right tone of voice.
