I tell it like I see it!

No beating around the bush with me when I am asked a question I tell it like I see it! Always have always will! My mother in law is married to someone that talks all the time. He keeps trying to speak to us about nonsense I just plain told him that I don't care to hear gossip and that is all it is. He wants to talk about people we don't even know. So when asked a question do you tell it like you see it? Or do you tend to beat around the bush and say what you think they want to hear?

It really depends on who I am talking too. I know people who if I told I didn't want to gossip about somebody they would start a 45 minute conversation about how wrong I am for feeling that way. I don't have time or care for that. There are some people who I know that I don't express any opinion to at all because of that. I know I disagree with them and unless I feel up to a big long debate I just listen and don't say anything. There are some people though that I feel comfortable enough to say I would rather not discuss certain things or people. My mom talks about people that she knows that I don't know all the time. I let her do it for a couple of minutes because I know it gives her joy to talk about them, then I just kind of change the subject.

We have a tactic when someone starts to gossip we start looking at our watches and act like we have some place to go and then we say okay well we have to go. And leave unless they are at our home then we just plain tell who ever it is sorry but we don't go around carrying tells on others. And ask them to stop gossiping or please leave. One way or another we don't want to hear about others unless they are sick or in need of our help. God hates people that gossip!

If you beat around the bush then they will keep doing the same thing and that won't fix things it will only make things worse. Tell your mother in law just where to put her thoughts and don't let anyone change you. I think your doing the right thing. It makes me feel better when I just speak my peace instead of lying about something I don't like. Good for you
