A friend told me recently that some of my words can be sharp. There are definitely times I can be too direct.
I would assume this is the crux of so many disagreements. Statements like, “That’s not what I meant or I hope you didn’t take it that way” are all too common.
Whether sarcasm feeds misinterpretation or a false perception of the truth; words can sting.
How do you work to make sure your words are understood?
