Why complain about something if you aren't willing to try and resolve… - Elena's Journal
Why complain about something if you aren't willing to try and resolve whatever problem you are having? Yes, there's always "Arrgh what a crappy day," and things beyond your control, like other people in a work environment, but when you are unhappy about your life or with someone who knows you well enough to be open with? Is it really better to whine about it and do nothing?

I guess social ramifications are an issue, as much as I get sad about feeling left out sometimes I get very awkward around people I feel like I can't be myself around.

I think I'd be honest with what I think before I worry about how people will react, but trust me if I don't start getting paranoid...

I think I learned from my less than healthy relationship with my family is that you can say how you feel or what you mean about something, maybe get offended or mad, but get over it and still care for each other. The fact that I feel like most people don't feel that way (or, selfishly, about me) makes being how I've learned to care a very sensitive series of tiptoeing and regret and moments of complete unabashed bluntness.

All I can do is continue to tell people to be honest with me as I wish to be them, I think. If people were just more honest with each other, so much conflict and tension could be dissipated... but people you have conflicts with beyond petty things would probably become more apparent. To me, a good trade off. I feel much better knowing exactly where I stand with somebody.

OK, I'll start

I hate the fact that he ruined his MacGuyver image by acting in the Stargate TV series. The man was a goddamn hero to me.

I invite someone to several events, they assume I mean "date" and say no, I assume "I'm busy" means "I'm busy" and keep asking for other events, I finally find out later that she thought I was being creepy for asking her out repeatedly when that was never the intention.
