"Never apologize for showing feeling. When you do so, you apologize for truth."

Benjamin Disraeli (1804 - 1881)

How timely a quote, for me.

Unfortunately this is not true for men in most of today's society.

I remember well going to court for my divorce - where if I showed anger at everything I had gone through, it just looked like I was violent. If I showed any sadness over not seeing my kids then I was a wimp. And any happiness meant I was an unfeeling bastard. It was a no win situation - no matter what I felt I could not show it.

I don't think that I agree with this.

My son just had this talk recently with his grandma.

Sometimes the truth (your feelings as it were) is just not necessary to be known in the moment.

Tact and silence can be more called for than truth and knowing when and where to use which one is quite the key to success in life.
