Lets face it people, nobody likes to be called out, we don't take it well.
Bottling up what's eating you may nevertheless be a recipe for disaster, should the lid blow, that is a tsunami in the works
So how do you voice out a flaw_ Yes! Love me, love my dog, but seriously what if the dog is a little monster, do you tip toe around it, or take a jab at it. Even if you manage to find the blurry line in between and let it slip, you are 98% of the time bound to suffer the aftermath of an attack, or denial, the worst being_ the silent treatment.
Therefore, if i may ask, when does criticism become less constructive and more destructive? Can a person not speak their mind, without the other taking offense or a blow to the ego.
