And the people who have helped me out most in life are the ones who have given it to me straight with no fluffy junk around the edges. And IMO, if someone thinks they have to use fluffy words to not "offend" me, then they don't really think too much of me-b/c it indicates to me that they don't think I have a strong enough mind to be able to emotionally deal with whatever they say. And that is what has really happened in society, it is an infantilization of society, so you can't ever have the hard conversations b/c we treat each other like emotional infants who can't handle certain words, thoughts, or emotions. It's ironic, 50 years ago people were much more courteous, but not as afraid to speak their mind (they said yes sir, no sir, opened doors etc.). Today people are less courteous and more afraid to speak their mind . . .ironic isn't it. Before I came home just now I was talking to a US Special Forces Vet. and we were talking about something similar. Funny two convos basically on the same topic. dellme 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
