Telling it like it is……

This is just something that I’ve been thinking about today.  If you go through a very negative experience are you supposed to label it as positive to please others?  Surprisingly yes.  Many just don’t want to know about the bad times and prefer  just to hear about the good.  In fact, saying anything else could be considered detrimental.  That is not to say that I am a negative person.  In fact, my outlook is very optimistic and positive.  However, I do like to tell it as it is and that includes my own faults.

    Do you know when somebody is being pathological?

    Do you accept all behavior as being ‘acceptable’?

    People get duped all the time, ENRON, Bernie Madoff, GMC, Salli Mae…..not only does it happen in the corporate world, it also occurs in people’s everyday personal life.

    People that use shock tactics are usually only awed by shock. They’re behavior is extreme, therefore their perceptions are extreme.

    Is an artist’s goal to shock? Artists are taught to exaggerate and get an emotional response. Artist’s goals are not to tell the truth but to persuade.

    I may have gone on a tangent, but it seems to me you are talking about Stockholm syndrome:
    a psychological response sometimes seen in abducted hostages, in which the hostage shows signs of loyalty to the hostage-taker, regardless of the danger or risk in which they have been placed.
