Imagine it this way: if I make you a meal, and it tastes like crap, will you tell me or will you just smile at me and eat it? Will I be more irritated with you for calling me a bad cook or for not telling me the truth? And will you be more willing to speak sincerely and take the consequences or bottle it up in you and let it keep upsetting you by not talking about it?

This is what a relationship is about. It seems that it takes a lot of skill to pick out the times to be honest and the times to keep your mouth shut so that you don't hurt the other person's feelings. You might need to make compromises. Even if it sometimes means tucking your opinion under the doormat, before you step in. Honesty is important, we just need to be careful with the delivery.

I guess what I'm trying to say is: I'm sorry.
