  • Meh, the truth doesn't always have to hurt. It's all about delivery.

    Some people really just have absolutely zero skill when it comes to the intricate artistry and mastery of maneuvering words. In a way, it's similar to children and their limited vocabulary: some people have limited ways to distribute the truth. Therefore, sincerely making them come off as rude, disrespectful, insensitive, inconsiderate, or even mean-spirited in some cases. So yes, some people who may be dealing with a very sensitive situation cannot handle any additional layers of nastiness. Some people don't have that fire in their spirit to banter or give a clever retort towards someone who has just been inappropriate in their form of delivering the truth.

    It all depends. However, THE TRUTH DOES NOT HAVE TO HURT. There are so many ways you can tell someone the truth in a way that softens the blow.

  • It doesn't hurt; what hurts is your ego and your habits. So are you going to identify yourself with your ego and habits if it hurts then?
