Eschew Obfuscation

I have always hated New Year’s Resolutions. Nobody I know ever keeps them.

Over the past few months, however, I have been thinking about what people say, and how they say it.

It seems that more and more, people are afraid to say what they are really thinking; all too often, we say something else to “be nice”

Enough Already

My new year’s Resolution is to Speak Plainly. To be direct and to the point. I’m done with Safe Spaces. I’m done with tiptoeing around the faint of heart.

From here on out, I will call things what they are and say what I mean. This means saying “Ugly” whem I mean “Ugly”, and saying “Fat” when I mean “Fat”.

I know some people will get offended, but Confucius he say:

Now that’s a New Year’s Resolution I can keep.
