I disagree with this.

Yeah I’ve tried this and it’s a great way to get treated like a doormat by people who are confidently wrong.


MorbidandBack t1_j74hn0k wrote

I hold the same disagreeing opinion. Objective truth is what matters. No one should want to live in a delusional world.

With that being said, you can be correct and convey that in a kind manner. If the person is wrong and you are right, it will come out in due time. Some people just have to learn the hard way. The objective truth is always revealed… eventually.

Eh, there’s often a ‘to what purpose’ component to that objective truth bit. Some fights aren’t worth fighting, and there is plenty of benefit in harmless delusion for many a hard life. Any attempt to bring objective truth in some instances is inherently unkind. It’s when those delusions begin to have an negative impact that the conversation can start.

"Truth" Is not an object that you can see and define, what we percieve to be true changes with time as we evolve, we are limited by our counciousness and the tools that we use to interact with the world, some times the truth is that the world is flat untill a New tool allow us to understand our surroundings better so we reach a New truth, and some truths are only applicable in their realm of study.

This implies kindness and truth are mutually exclusive. They are not. You can kindly tell someone they're wrong, you can kindly tell someone they need to take better care of themselves, you can kindly tell someone that the law of gravity doesn't care if they think they can fly.

But you can't tell someone on the internet that the opinion they've been issued is wrong otherwise they'll attack you...
And your family if they're able.

There's a time to be supportive.

There's a time to be honest.

You can be kind and honest, but sometimes it's hard to be both.

I think it's about listening with the intent to understand. You don't need to get walked on to really listen to people. You would be surprised at the trust you can build up by listening with your eyes and heart.

Kindness matters. So does the truth. Equally. Find balance in that. It’s not easy.

Truth matters more than kindness.

Hey guys... The fascists are telling me to kill 'x' group but rather than telling them that its immorally wrong just be kind to a Nazi. Just keep being tolerate to the intolerant and listen. <3

I think I should quit school.

Oh honey I love that for you.

Finishing their fifth soda. Pass me another soda.

Sure thing.

Kindness can and does kill.

Kindness is an important quality as it helps build strong and positive relationships, creates a supportive and inclusive environment, and has a positive impact on the well-being of both the giver and the recipient.

I dunno. This may be an unpopular opinion, but a lot of the time, people need to hear that they’re an asshole. Most people go day in and day out being an asshole and don’t get called on it.

Sometimes what’s really motivating is speaking your mind to someone and letting them know the truth about how it is and then walking away and not giving a damn what they have to say in response.

No. Clearly no.

I think it's more important to be right. I mean if you're not right you're not right but kindness kills. Sometimes you just got to be rude and tell someone they're ducking up.
