Hello all 🙂
So I’ve been told by people very close to me that, sometimes, I can be pretty harsh. More often then not when they bring up example, they are pretty accurate in saying that I can be harsh. Honesty for the most part, I agree with them. I can be pretty harsh. But my problem is I dont want to be harsh. I dont want to hurt people with my words or tone unintentionally, that’s not my intention. I never even mean to intentionally hurt someone with my words or tone on purpose because its not right. Whenever somebody asks my intention behind my harshness, its always good. Not to have excuses for my actions on this, but, I’ve always been a pretty honest person and I think my really honest nature can contribute to my harshness. I’ll tell you how it is and I will continue to do so, I wont lie or overly sugar coat something. But I never intended to be straight up rude, mean or blunt, I mean to go about it he right way. That being said, not everything goes as planned. Sometimes I know I’m being too harsh, but other times, I dont. But still, how can be perceived as honest instead of harsh? How can I go about this stuff in the right way? How can I come off to others the way I intended?

I ever mean to hurt people with what I say or sound like, its just not my thing. How can I turn my harshness into something else?

I am also told that I am “too harsh” or that I “don’t care enough”. But the truth is, sometimes I don’t know how else to express my feelings or opinions. I’ve been working on my tone more recently though. Maybe try to respond to things in a way that makes the person realize you’re doing it out of love. Like if a situation arises to where someone needs your advice, start off by saying “Well, I see what your problem is…if this were me I would *blah blah blah*”. And try not to be snappy! I have a problem with that as well. 🙂 but I hope this helps

I think before you say your opinion just analyze the situation and the people you are with. Also, I know you’ve heard this, but make sure what you say is something you’d be okay with if someone else said it to you. Getting into the word, also, and finding out what God says. Always pray about it and ask for His help to know what to say and when to say it.
