Tact Matters

While well-intentioned, our honesty can sting others. If I find myself in a situation where my truth-speaking has hurt an individual, then I have to resist my natural tendency to insist, “It was just the truth! I’m only being honest!” Tact does matter, and I care about the feelings of others. With this in mind, I try to pause, listen, and explain my honest words after the other person feels heard and less offended.
