We hate hearing them, especially about ourselves.
I have just had a conversation with someone who, when told one about themselves (The circs are unimportant. I was just sharing the honestly held remarks of another), rejoined with one to me, about me. It cut deep as I know it’s true.
However, I know what I am doing about it and the fact I have a cunning plan that I am reliant upon. So the cut healed very quickly.
The conversation went v frosty and was a short-lived affair from that point on.
My glass house affords excellent views of the weaknesses of mere mortals. Oh yeah, apart from being thin, the air on the high ground is just fine.
Telling the truth makes for odd feelings. Overall; better out than in.
