Brutally honest, blunt, arrogant, reckless have been some of the more genuine compliments I have received back in the day.
It has been a really long time since I have spoken my mind. I wont say it has been a strain on me to be the goody two-shoes, but I did miss the freedom of speech. I would like to believe that I was trying to be nice and less hurtful to other people by softening my tone; and that it wasn’t a ploy to fit in with other people be liked or any such human need that I might posses.
Of-late, I seem to have found my spirit back. I am surprised by my own honesty. I figure it is better to lay out the cards and then leave the other person to deal with them the way they want to. How he decides to play them should then be acceptable to me. A lot of times when I think I will never hear from them again; they have surprised me. I think we forget to give people credit for being mature rational beings.
I like knowing where I stand with people. I think others do too. Small peppy talk is for a party full of strangers, probably at a coffee shop. How ever and I quote Mr Bill Gates, “In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs”.
