True Colours

True Colours

I don’t have a filter for my thoughts, I have a committee. I don’t just blurt out my brain farts. I think about what I’m saying. Some say I over think. I say more people should think more before they share their ‘pearls’ of wisdom’. I’m sick of people using the excuse of ‘I have no filter’ to be rude. Be honest sure, but being rude and nasty under the banner of ‘I just say what I think’ is well, rude. That might work for an eight year old but not for an adult. What happened to ‘if you can’t say something nice, say nothing at all’?

  1. Great post! In the end, it all boils down to how much speakers (or writers) care about the heart of their listeners, (or readers). No filter, is no excuse.

      No way! Can’t imagine you being rude to anyone!!

      1. Not rude, just blunt. An officer asked my opinion, I answered honestly. He wanted a gentle lie, not the harsh truth… but war is harsh and mistakes cost lives so I have no regrets. Maybe next time he thinks of that, makes a better judgement call.

          See, not rude, I knew it! Sounds like you made the right decision and it had nothing to do with filters.

          1. If I was more,…. PC I would have kept my early promotion. And I could’ve avoid suggesting what I did.

            In a nut shell, he asked my position on a policy so I bluntly told him it sucked. Had to have been made by a person who never stepped into the field, rather than a true warrior. I suggested said officer should be castrated, before he killed more good troops. I had respected the officer in question, and thought he was a great field commander. Never occurred to me was his policy! Oops! LOL

              That’s a big oops! Politics is obviously not for you, lucky you’re a writer instead πŸ˜€
