    I Hate It When People Don't Say It Like It Is.

    I find it hard to read body language. To me it is easier when people tell it like it is. When people say something just to be kind it irratates me, I find it more hurtful that they can't say what they mean then if they say it. So what if I cry, I would be more upset if I...
