we say that we're just being ourselves and just saying whats the real truth. . But what about if what you are saying can hurt other feelings? Can you still be real and voice out what you think?

Being vocal is good but one should also have a high sensitivity especially to the people listening to what you have to say. In other words, take full responsibility for it. If you have to say something you have to back it up with facts or at least stand by for what you believe. People may argue with you but they will give their respect if they see that you reasons for what you believe in. There's a thin line between being frank and being impolite.

That's true. I noticed that too. Some people create discussions in a sarcastic manner.

Some persons may even call you "moron" if your opinions do not agree with theirs lol. Now that's what I call being truly vocal.

Yes, but one has to filter before talking. It's far too easy to hurt someone's feelings. One can say the truth, but say it in a way that isn't as hurful as it could be. Like the difference between, "You are so stupid!" and "Could you tell me why you thought the answer was ...." "What was your reasoning behind this answer?"

I think it can still be a good thing. Sometimes the truth may hurt. However, we should watch our words. If we use words that can hurt then we're accountable. But if you use the right words and they still get hurt, that means they can't face the music about themselves yet.
