Honesty, Candor and Tact
truthfulness, sincerity, or frankness.
The quality of being open and honest in expression; frankness.
Adroitness and sensitivity in dealing with others or with difficult issues.
Three qualities that are important for anyone to have. I have 2. -.-
I’ll give you a hint, it’s not tact.
Under normal circumstances I have an acceptable level of tact. Talking to my Daddies, however, I lose all sense of tact. I say the most insensitive things at the most inappropriate times. A perfect example, last night my Daddy took the time out of his night to tell me a bed time story. Not even 10 minutes in I interrupt him saying that I’m falling asleep and he needs to hurry up! Yet another time, my Daddy and I were having an eyebrow raising competition and I told him that he’d won because of his large forehead. I then burst into giggles, telling him I was only kidding…it was his receding hair line! That one was particularly bad. I don’t know what came over me.
It isn’t out of malice. I’m not making fun of them…I don’t intend to hurt them…it just slips out!
I need some serious help in the tact department. 😛
