Ho! Hum...

Sometimes I wonder if one can be simple and yet diplomatic in their approaches. I checked the meaing for diplomacy/diplomatic in the dictionary and to my surprise i find it really has a positive side to it. But to me being diplomatic has a very negative connotation. When people mask their true intentions and sugar-coat them arent they being cunning, sly , etc? Cant we simply say whats on our mind, of course in a way it wouldnt hurt others' sentiments, and not be thought of "oH! that one's a sure cat on the wall! I wouldnt trust her if i were you!"? There have been quite a few instances when I have come across people confiding in me about how they find someone/some issue annoying but when asked to voice their opinion silently back out or better still act in a completely nonchalant manner.

Ho! Hummm think its time I joined the bandwagon ....i mean if you cant beat 'em you might as well join 'em...right??

This whole blog is not to advocate against being diplomatic, in fact I truly think its one of the qualities that should be inculcated even at the school level.

Now ain't that all tact?? Aha!

Howdy neighbour! For those who come in late, I'm the neighbourly inspiration behind this blog! But I'm gonna start a blog way cooler than this...wait a minute, I'm too busy at work. Hahaha, but seriously well written. Waiting for an encore.
