The other day, when I was a bit stretched, tired and hurried, I told someone quite specifically how I was feeling in response to a question and it elicited the response, 'I don't think I've ever known you be so honest.'

I have no idea what's going on in the mind of most of the rest of the world most of the time. I think that many of the world's problems are caused by people trying to second guess rather than being content not to know that which they have not been told specifically. But can I just say, and, as I've said before, it's my blog so I can, that if you ask me how I am and I say I am OK, I am OK. Just because I occasionally say I am not doing that well it doesn't mean that all the previous times when I said everything was fine it was a lie.

People. Who can fathom them? Why try?

The world is divided into two camps. Those who say honestly what they are thinking or how they are feeling (being sensitive of course), and those who expect you to guess what they mean or how they are feeling when they don't tell you the whole story.
I have both sorts in my family and it makes life difficult at times.
