I am so tired of people who claim things like “I tell it like it is” or “I don’t sugarcoat the truth” and “if you can’t handle the truth that’s not MY problem”. Even Emily Dickenson stated “tell all truths, but tell it with slant” meaning speak always in truth however, speak it with compassion and…

laugh-i-nearly—died Im not exactly sure what you are trying to say in your note. I dont think I hear truth any different than any one else would. I just feel, and this is my opinion, some truths should be done so with compassion…

What I´m trying to say is that you cant control how other people act, you can only control how you react to what they have to say. Also the truth was never meant to be comforting or nice, thats why Jack Nicholson said “YOU CANT HANDLE THE TRUTH” in “A few good men” because the truth is a bitch. Dont matter how you sugar coat it. And it builds character how you handle yourself. Makes you stronger or it breaks you, its all up to you how you wanna handle it. 

Yes I understand now but I can’t say I completely agree..I believe some situations warrant a straight out no sugar coating truth, “ahh yea girl you got something hanging from your nose” vs “I’m sorry to tell you this but I saw your man out with some chick” vs “oh you just poured your heart out to me? I just fuckin can’t!” Sorry but the last one? to me that’s a bit harsh, you couldn’t have said “hey I’m sorry you’re dealing with so much, but I have a lot on my plate right now, can we talk about this later?”
Idk maybe I AM too nice, too much of a wuss, maybe I’m not strong..
