People behaving cruelly often think this. And 9.9 times out of 10, it’s bullshit. It’s just cruelty. This especially happens with people “just being honest” as if honesty is a great justification for cruelty. 9.9 times out of ten, it isn’t honesty of any objective sort – it’s just an opinion. And honest or not, it’s cruel to share some opinions. There is a reason we don’t say every thing that comes into our heads.
