Thoughts on: Some Things Are Better Off Left Unsaid Or Unwritten
I think there are many things that we are all better off went unsaid. But there are times that people are too reluctant to speak.
I wrote about what happened after my father died on one of my blogs: I was constantly being told how thankful people were for how he treated them and what he did for them. This didn't happen for 1 or 2 months or even 1 or 2 years it went on for a long time.
It is true he was special but I also think many of those people didn't speak up directly to him (though some certainly did). We often are reluctant to directly tell people how thankfully we are for what they did. We would all benefit from people sharing those thoughts more readily.
