when to say nothing or say nothing that will hurt a person is an art.
we all have the right to our own opinions it is not always beneficial to
voice those views.
people have the habit of trying to have the last word and occasionally
it is like this when a person lacks diplomacy.
They may feel strongly that they are right about something or
conversely that someone is wrong about something.
Regardless how intense the emotion stop and think about voicing
your thoughts. Do you
honestly believe you opinion is going to change the way a person is
thinking or will it result in them resenting your opposing view?
Is there some good that will come from your comment or will you
just end up hurting or angering someone with your lack of tact and
will hear people talk about everything from politics to sports to
religion and without a doubt there will be opposing views.
Most likely none of the opinions are based on one hundred percent
knowledge or fact but more on their own emotional view.
That is why challenging a point of view can be so dangerous,
because most of us make decisions based on a little fact, a little
knowledge and a good deal of emotion.
Once emotion becomes part of the factor there is a very good
chance that someone will be hurt by comments that show lack of
is in my opinion the better person who can say nothing when anything
more will result in an argument or misunderstanding. Believe what you want, act on your best instincts, and speak
when it will benefit the listener.
