No problems in paradise.......just some good, honest advice

Why is it that, in general as a human race, people have a problem with admitting that they have hurt someone else with their statements?

If someone is speaking from their heart, about their true feelings, why do they have to deny that they could have hurt someone ?

Why must they always make the statement that the other person misunderstood what was said?

I believe that if you try to deny the person's feelings (by making it look like they just took it the wrong way) that it is more hurtful than if you just affirm that something you've said or done caused bad feelings.

You may take this as my personal advice for the day.

    Hmmm... good advice. Humbling. I guess words are like bullets... if you were aiming for something, but unintentionally hit something else, it's still you who pulled the trigger.

    It seems to me, that in general, we americans don't take enough personal responsibility for our choices and actions. Thanks for the reminder to do better.
