True.............................?

Post by Mad Dilys »

I have heard it said that if you can't say something good about someone, then say nothing.

Is this desirable, commendable or just too much trouble?

I do feel that sometimes Warnings may be of use, ONLY if you have had a bad experience with someone and you see a friend about to do the same thing you did.

Don't pass on negative gossip though ! :stp

An interesting topic worthy of debate, but in the "Visting Luxor section"? :?

Or am I just being a male bully to ask this?

Depends.

I wouldn't go out of my way to bad mouth anyone for no reason.

But anyone bad mouthing me can expect to get both barrels in return :vs

It is desirable, commendable - but sometimes just too much trouble. :|

Desirable - Yes, because it generally creates greater harmony and tolerance.

Commendable - Yes, although I really feel it shouldn't need to be because I think it should ideally be a normal way to behave.

Too much trouble - For many yes, although cases vary - for some it seems all the time and others occasionally.

I am blessed to have one true friend and I cannot think of one occasion in the more than 30 years that I have known her that she has said anything bad about anyone. She has an amazing ability to witness the bad but focus on the good.

:gb: Me? I hope I find some balance, but how that is perceived by others is a different matter.

If we all adopted that saying, there would be utter silence on this forum. :lol: I always give as good as I get, but do not go out of my way to bad mouth a person, I really have to justify using my breath, and it usually ends up being a waste of said breath on some.

I really appreciate the exchange of idea with people who are able to put forward their ideas and to suggest reasons/resources/options and I usually endeavor to do the same without lowering the tone and content of the subject matter at hand.
