Am I the only one.....

Am I the only one who will click on a question, start to write an answer, then erase it because it sounds to nasty (although never meant like that). There are just sometimes I don't have the right words to express what I'm thinking.

  • I've done that lots..written words can be misconstrued and hard to write in a way that doesn't seem condescending sometimes. And other times it's hard just to know what to say.

  • I do that too!! I want to help, but I just can't make the words not sound judgmental or hateful.

  • I do that sometimes.

    Answer by febmom007 at 10:56 AM on Feb. 5, 2011

  • I do that. I am fairly straight forward and try to answer questions as I see them. But sometimes the topic or idea upsets me and I have to pull back so that I do not come across too strong and negative.

  • No youre not the only one. Sometimes youre just stating the 'hard to take' truth or reality and it sounds bad.
