I could still remember that time when I posted a quote here in my blog about SILENCE. I strongly believe that silence is the most powerful scream and these days, it is killing me softly – in my personal life and even at work. I always encounter people who’d rather stay muted than to speak their minds to me. I am a confrontational type of person, so I believe. Silent treatment or neglect is like a knife twisting inside my whole being and the pain is unbearable, I could hardly breathe. I’d rather have you tell me bad things straight on my face than hearing it from someone else or notice some changes with your treatment without having any idea at all. I really hate it when I am left hanging on when I am very much involved and someone refused to keep me in the loop. I am perceptive, alright. But I don’t want to assume. I always give people the benefit of the doubt. I am always open to the idea that maybe I misunderstood the gestures of others. Besides, it is really hard to read people’s minds let alone figure out what and how they feel inside.
Communication is a two-way street. And while I don’t underestimate the power of body language I’d be more convinced if someone will be honest enough to tell me the real score straight on my face. The truth is definitely a two-edged sword but I’d rather be hurt by it than be happy with a lie. At the end of the day, the truth will be revealed, so why should prolong the agony?
How about you? How do you confront the truth? Are you the type that ignores it and let it be? I’d be glad to read your comments.
