Tell It Like It Is

Daily Prompt:

When was the last time you really wanted (or needed) to say something, but kept quiet?

Write a post about what you should’ve said.

Truth be told, I think I leave very little unsaid. As I have grown older I have become more outspoken and have found it is better to “tell it like it is.” That doesn’t mean I need to share every thought in my head about someone or something, especially if those thoughts might be hurtful. There needs to be some filtering. But if I think someone is using poor judgement in making a decision about something, I will gently and kindly try to offer up other options. If I don’t like the way someone has spoken to me I will immediately let them know I’m not happy about it. It is freeing being open about how I feel, though for those on the receiving end they may not feel the same way  🙂

  1. Never saw the first one but the second one lives on my refrigerator as a daily reminder to listen to my customers as they usually tell me what they want. If only I would listen.
    Great post.

  2. I often open my mouth without thinking however I am leaving a job and nobody knows the real reasons except my family. I should speak out but I won’t.

    • sometimes you just can’t speak out given the circumstances. sometimes speaking out can end up in burning bridges that maybe shouldn’t be burned. There are a million reasons to stay quiet sometimes.
