Tiptoeing around someone’s explosive temper or passive fear of reality does not make a healthy environment. –Marala Scott
I spend a lot of time talking to people and responding to questions in general about life. One characteristic that most people have in common is their ability to ignore reality or the truth when it’s convenient. Many people are afraid to upset or disappoint other people by telling them the truth. I’ve found that the majority already have the answer to their question or know a viable solution. What they’re soliciting is an opinion in hope that they hear something they can manage to do within their comfort level. That’s not reality; it’s denial, which won’t resolve issues. No one can help you if you refuse to look at a situation from an unbiased perspective for what it really is. Tiptoeing around someone’s explosive temper or passive fear of reality doesn’t make a healthy environment or emotional state. Make decisions based on reality not the way you’d like it to be.

I heard somebody talking about this on the radio yesterday, but I can’t remember what station it was. Anyways, this is great.
I just like the helpful information you supply on your articles. I’ll definitely return here frequently. I’m rather sure I will learn many new stuff from here! Best of luck!
This is great Marala! I always try to be blunt and honest. If my friends can’t accept me for that then they can’t except me overall and we need to reconsider that friendship because a true FRIEND keeps it REAL. Great blog!
Thank you Allison. xo
I love that and you put it so well:-)
I agree. That’s all you need is one that’s willing to be a true friend when you need it. Thank you for sharing! xo
Yes, I think you are absolutely right. Thanks! xo
Great words of advice, I think that’s why we always treasure that one friend who always tells us the truth no matter if we like it or not.
