Limiting communication is never the answer. Seriously. Yeah, it may be hard to say some things to some people.

But the thing is, when they find out that you kept something from them, or ignored them (they most likely WILL find out, don't kid yourself), they are going to be hurt even more than if you had just said it to their face in the first place.




And here's the deal, with me at least... I will NOT be offended... as long as it's completely honest and truthful, I will respect the way you feel about whatever it is.

The moment you hide it from me, or even go so far as ignoring me so as to not HAVE to say something, I immediately lose a LOT of respect for you. Because basically you're saying that I'm not even worth the time and effort that it takes to offend.

How the heck does that spare my feelings? It doesn't... Like I said, it hurts more so than the initial offense would have.




Think of it this way... Hate is not the opposite of Love! True, it is on the opposite side of the same coin; but it is still a part of the coin, without one, there is no place for the other. You can't have a 1 sided coin...

The "Coin" is passion. There is passion for (this is called Love), and there is passion against (that would be Hate). The true opposite would be the lack of a "Coin" all together.

The lack of the "Coin" (Passion) is "No Coin" (Indifference/Ignorance/apathy). So by ignoring the issue, or even the other person them self; by showing this indifference, you are exercising the very antithesis of Love itself!

And what's more is; this indifference, this apathy, this ignorance is the same thing the bible warns against when it says that if you are lukewarm God will spit you out!
