Some incorrectly believe that honesty equals being nasty or confrontational.
Some believe they can only be honest (usually ugly and malicious) behind the security of their phones or electronic devices.
Some are intimidated by those who are honest, incorrectly believing them to be rude, unnecessary or too in-your-face.
While truth and honesty appears to be bad words to some, there are many of us who still believe both are necessary, in order to be a genuine family member and friend.
There is always room for the ‘time and place’ argument (discussion) and yet those who usually make that argument, are ‘arguably’ those who avoid making themselves available.
Therefore, there never seems to be the right time and place, to have those needed, good and open ‘honest-to-God’ conversations.
If a cohesive and real family unit matters to you, make some time to make it happen, communication is key.
