Good day fellow mylotters, Well, I just really don't know why there are some people who will just talk so tactless. As they are not rephrasing the line before throwing it out to their fellow. Just like what I have experienced. As one of my friend have talked to me, the words which comes from him is like a sword that hits me slowly. That he was not aware that he is using a hurtful words when we have had our conversation. Nonetheless, what to do, it was already said and done.

Hello, Its already done. So, you better forgive him because he actually didnt mean it. You tell him the truth that he hurt your feeling so he will be aware next time. If you didnt done anthing here a lot of people will got hurt. Alright??

good day! what makes it worse, sometimes, is these people are not tactful with their actions that they deserve harsh words, and yet people around them are careful. if you can get the opportunity to tell your friend how his words had affected you, then go try telling him without putting a strain to your relationship. after all, these people needs to learn, too.

That is why they say, "spoken word is much hurtful than physical injury" (not killing) I know someone who is also a very tactless and never consider others feelings. As if they are the only perfect person and knows everything and never did any mistake. They always speak as if they're perfect. They think that everyone is like them...and if you do not understand them..."they never care"

It is true that some people don't seem to engage their brain before opening their mouth and hence conversations are the worse for it. Words can be very hurtful particularly when the person speaking them has not thought about possible repercussions at all. Whenever I am engaging in conversation with someone else I always try and put myself in their shoes if I can and think about what I am saying.

Some people really doesn't mind what are the words just go out in their mouths not knowing that they have already hurt others. They don't know how to control theirselves. It is sad to note. Let us be the one who considers them because they don't know what they are doing.

I am sorry dear friend! But, in future I would suggest you become more vigilant when people talk to you. I find many people are very defensive while we talk to them but they do not care while they make tactless remarks.Protest immediately when you feel something is amiss. At times, it take a bit of time for things to register ; this is because , we assume everything to be simple. But this also emboldens people to shoot their mouths. It is better to protest and nip it in the bud than escalate matters.

Omg, I know what you mean. I think some people do not think before saying anything about the other person. They would say something that's very hurtful, and not think if it's painful or not. I guess that's how some people are, which isnt cool anyone. But whatever...Hope everything goes well for you!

Hi sheila ! One needs to show courtesy while talking with friends. Even when we are very close to our friends we could not cross certain limits of decency. You could ask your friend not to use demeaning phrases in conversation.

Yes, I know. There are people who are what we call brutally honest and they end up being tactless. Sometimes, honesty, when taken too far, can be bad for some people.
