“All cruel people describe themselves as paragons of frankness.”
Tennessee Williams’ point of view may be extreme, however, it serves as a reminder that directness can be used an unkind weapon disguised as honesty. Love-centered frankness is the act of open and sincere communication in a straightforward way. It is the genuine desire to disclose one’s thoughts freely and is often accompanied by the willingness to deal with difficulty or unpleasant issues. When lacking sensitivity it can come across as bluntness and deliver an outcome that is the antithesis to practicing the Presence. Love-centered frankness leads to intimacy, trust and appreciation.
