On Second Thought...

Well folks, it's almost 4:30 and I am officially feeling like a normal human being again. In emerging from my weekend coma saturated with too much alcohol, too much hot weather and too many difficult conversations (okay, just one, but one is always too much), I ask you: Is it better to have a relationship with somebody where

1.) Both parties politely hold back their feelings, yet share intimate life details and generally torment one another with the weight of unsaid thoughts constantly dangling over one another's heads

or

2.) Both parties divulge all sorts of otherwise unsaid things--many of them good but many ugly as well?

Kindness vs. Honesty. Discuss.

Actually, the whole relationship sounds toxic. I think the better option would be "C. Cut that person out of your life. Chalk the loss up to wrong person, wrong time."

Option 2 is the better of the two, but it ain't the best of all possible worlds. The policy I favor is: "Be honest and share your thoughts, but know when to shut up."

Anon--Toxic. Interesting. You could be right. I was so busy being caught up in the drama of it that this hadn't occured to me. Suggestion under consideration.
