There are times and occasions when I want to scream!!
One such time is when a person asks me for my opinion.
I am fine with giving an opinion. I will do it with tact, but I will tell the truth. I do not sugar coat my thoughts and opinions. They are what they are.
I, however, dislike giving my opinion when I know that the person asking for it does not want to hear the truth.
Everyone who knows me knows that I am not going to sugar coat or be dishonest. I am not sure why a person would ask me for an opinion if they do not want an honest answer.
But they do.
Question is posed.
I refuse to answer the question.
I am not sure why I answer it, but I eventually do.
And then they are mad because my answer is, as I knew it wouldn't be, the answer that they wanted to hear.
This drives me absolutely, 100% crazy!!!
Why do people ask questions when they know they might get upset if they do not receive the answer that they want?
Why do people get upset when they hear an honest answer over the desired answer - supposing that honest answer is not what they want to hear?
This is one of those human behavior issues that boggles my mind. Honesty, for me, is appreciated above and beyond most, if not all, other things. If I ask a question, I expect an honest answer whether it is the answer that I want to hear or not.
And right now... I want to scream!!!
