Be polite. Of course.
But I think if everyone said what they actually thought, the world would be a better place.
Ok, maybe I’m generalizing here, but hear me out.
When we don’t say what we think and instead opt to say something that’s maybe easier to hear or fits some sort of neutral safe zone we can’t have we can’t make meaningful progress.
How many times in your life have you changed something only to hear (from those closest to you) ‘I’m so glad you did that, I wish you would have done that ages ago.’
I’m not saying that we should solicit advice without being asked. But if we are asked, providing our truth helps everyone.
It also doesn’t mean we need to accept any of the advice given to us, it’s just simply better to hear what people actually think on our journey to the truth.
