Hello: Its been a while since I posted some new thoughts, I have been busy lately, but here is one and hopefully I will keep updating and sharing my thoughts from time to time 🙂
People think that it is OK to speak your mind even when what comes out is not always appropriate to the situation. They see it as a sense of honor, pride or some sort of courage that they have in themselves to be “brave” enough to have their heart on their tongue (the way I see it personally can be described with one word: RUDE).
Yes, it is good to speak your mind, but to a certain extent. Example: When you tell one of your casual friends that they have bad fingers: Do you realize that when you said such a simple 3 lettered word as small as “bad”, you have just ruined that friend’s day by adding negative weight on their shoulders. They will go through their day knowing and telling themselves that they have bad fingers.
There is weight in the words we say. Not everything should be said out loud, some things are meant to be kept to yourself.
If you have nothing good to say, then don’t say anything.
