    Not Afraid to Speak Up

    Most times, I am not at all afraid about speaking my mind. I do realise there is a time and a place. I wouldn't for instance, go up to a boss and tell them they're a fat arsehole or something. I am very blunt, and some people call me a *****, but they just can't handle the truth...

    BUT I Don't Like to Speak

    I HAVE FOUND THAT IT'S BETTER TO SAY NOTHING EXCEPT WHEN ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY. MOST PEOPLE PRATTLE ON WITH OUT THOUGHT, AMUSED BY THE SOUND OF THEIR OWN VOICE, AND NEEDING THE ACCEPTANCE AND APPROVAL OF OTHERS. OBSERVATION IS KEY FOR ME. I CAN GET TO KNOW WAY MORE ABOUT A PERSON...

    Not Always Without Consequence!

    I may have a tendency to get emotional about certain things. I am just basically trying to reel it in so I don't cause controversy with my over zealous mouth sometimes!

    No Satisfaction Guranteed...?

    So, I work at this convince store on the south side of town in a major city, and don't really expect the people there to be quite polite nor too bright sometimes. But today I had had a customer which really didn't make sense to me. Normally when people come in and then decide...

    And When I Do Speak My Mind

    people take it the wrong way and if they dont they blow me off or patronize me. Especially my ex. He complains about what im saying, makes excuses and then over dramatizes EVERYTHING I say. For example I told him that it would help him financially  to take the bus more...

    Sorry, If I Offend!

    From age 7 until age 21... I had no voice. I hardly spoke on things. I had no beliefs that were mine, but what others told me I should have. I had no original thought, just expressing what the people around me thought and felt... And this is where I might have stayed for many...

    Others Don't Like It

    I speak my mind all the time. And, as Monk would say, "it's a gift and a curse". Because I tell it like it is, this is not always considered one of my most popular traits.  I am a firm believer that everyone has a right to their own opinion and I welcome...

    Stops Misunderstandings

    If something needs to be said I think it is always the best thing to come right out and say it this way you let people know what you think and it can also clear the air and stop any bad feeling. Then at least people know were they stand with you it has always been my way of doing...

    It's Fun

    If someone says something I disagree with, I'll sometimes start up a debate with them.  Not to be hostile, just because I like to debate things with people, as long as it stays logical and doesn't devolve into a screaming fight. ha.

    I finally spoke out! I've been holding in

    so much pain for a month now and I finally let it out and told someone how I've been feeling. That's my issue. I hold my pain in and never let it go, but this time I did and it made my life a whole let better :) I feel free and amazing.
