“It’s ironic,” she said. “Because you’re afraid of losing the friendship, you don’t tell your friends how you really feel. But because of that, the friendship breaks up anyway.”
It is ironic. What’s scary is that people rarely if ever communicate honestly. We hide. We passively aggressively say things to “hint” at what we mean. Then we play games. Because we’re so afraid. That’s what dating is like (I am guessing), because fear touches all the communication and then people become paralyzed causing destruction anyway.
Then when the door opens, that’s where it pours out.
I admire those who are unafraid to be clear about how they stand with everybody. It’s not brutal. It’s just honest. I wish that some people could be that way with me. So that I can find that courage to be honest too.
