Filtration of our words can be a great thing. Tact is an admirable trait in a person, to be sure. However, sometimes we take it too far. If you can’t communicate the things that matter, you’ll never have happy relationships. Next time you want to share something with someone that matters to you and you filter yourself out of fear of their possible negative reaction, consider giving them the benefit of a doubt. I have taken huge risks in sharing very personal things with others of late, and I’ve only found that it has enriched the relationships that matter most to me. Maybe it’s a fluke?
