Am I mean?

I recently got an email from someone saying how mean I am. It kinda got to me. I don't like mean people!!! Ahh! I didn't think I WAS one.

  • Some people confuse honesty with rudeness. I think you are a rather blunt person but I do not get a tone of malice in your answers so maybe they just need a thicker skin. Some of the questions on this site leave me struggling to keep a civil tounge in my head I must admit. But I have not seen anything as of yet that would make me think that you are bashing or being overly rude. Ah life...cant please all the people all the time!

  • It happens. Its the internet. I have other things going on during the day like college, work, kids, shopping, cleaning LOL. Im tied to this dumb computer most of the day for work and college otherwise Id be out doing other things. I just try and take things in stride and consider the source.

  • It's just someone disagreeing with something you said. Some times people just can't handle honesty or someone not agreeing with them.

  • Some people feel just because what they are going to say is honest makes it okay. "honesty' hurts sometimes. I have a sister who thinks just because something is true it is okay to say it. She often hurts other peoples feelings. There is a way to get your point across without being mean..honest or not.
