Time to straighten up the world as it really is all over the place and we all got a job to do – so LET’S GET ON WITH IT !
This short blog is saying it is time we just Say It as It Is.
We no longer need to hold back and squirm or pull away.
Just go for it and tell ‘em straight.
There is no point diluting what you know needs to be said and no point watering it down, as you don’t want to tell ‘em straight – that benefits none of us.
Tell ‘em straight means no matter who or what is in front of you, if you feel there is something to say and it is no nonsense straight forward talking – JUST SAY IT.
It could be a partner, the kids, the neighbour, the shop keeper, the supermarket security guard, the boss, the friend, the colleague at work, the board room CEO or the prisoner in the next cell – tell ‘em straight.
What is the point of not saying what needs to be said and choosing to say nothing?
What would be the purpose of calculating or trying to strategise what to say and how to say it and when?
What if there is now an immediacy needed when we engage and talk to others, so we all get what is needed to move on?
What if we actually are supporting others when we tell ‘em straight, as they know where we are coming from?
What if our tell ‘em straight talking offers a new standard in our relationships and work places?
What if the very thing you have got to say would make a Real difference?
What if your tell ‘em straight talking was super important and exactly what the other needed to hear?
What if you are simply a messenger for others when you just tell ‘em straight?
What if our whole outlook on life would be very different if we just tell ‘em straight?
What if we made the commitment to tell ‘em straight at every opportunity?
What if others would respect us if the dilly dallying nicey nice was replaced with the tell ‘em straight style?
What if we actually started liking ourselves more and respecting ourselves for doing the tell ‘em straight talking?
What if our new tell ‘em straight style made us more Real and we started feeling more confident about speaking up?
What if we practice this “tell ‘em straight”?
In other words, we would just say what we mean and not worry or get bothered about their reactions.
What if our tell ‘em straight helped us to not create so much tension in our body, which comes from holding back?
What if we posted online with our tell ‘em straight writing instead of the fluff and puff of past days?
What if we started writing Emails with our tell ‘em straight costume on?
In other words, we take small steps and do straight talking, no nonsense with those close to us and allow this to develop and expand into other areas of life which includes work and our Neighbourhood and Community.
What if others do appreciate those that tell ‘em straight, as they know exactly where they stand and it ain’t such a bad thing?
What if we have the power to touch others deeply if we tell ‘em straight?
It is important to be aware that tell ‘em straight is not venting or using our underlying tone to sound like it’s straight talk but it is not. No No.
Tell ‘em straight is not coming with any agenda or intention other than to be as open and HONEST as we can in that given moment.
A great example here are young children before they start getting into observing their parents and older siblings and going into pleasing or rebelling.
The kids that just Say It as It Is – they are not affected in anyway about the outcome or what may happen. They just tell us all straight. There are no narrow ways about them – just full on open-ness and a natural-ness that lights us up, as we feel where they are coming from.
This little 3 minute read is not to be underestimated.
If we stopped the Gossip and circulating chitta chatta that goes around and is pointless and has no purpose and replaced it with tell ‘em straight style talking, we would no doubt see much needed Change in our world.
This blog is written by a tell ‘em straight woman that is not here to get likes or followers. Just here to Say It as It Is with a no nonsense approach, because our world is starved of this type of Communication.
The key is to not be coming from a place of hurt, reaction or lashing out. Tell ‘em straight is – you know what is needed in that moment, you got the answer or the message – so say it straight.
Nothing more and nothing less is needed.
