It takes a lot of courage, honesty and clarity to be upfront and straight forward. Sometimes the battle between what we want to say and what we land up saying is so painful, it leaves your mentally wounded.
Today, be crystal clear.
Tell it like it is.
Specify exactly what you want.
Make sure the other person knows, in no uncertain terms what is in your mind.
Some people might be taken aback, some others might refuse whatever it is you wanted, but some others and just the right ones will admire you for it and maybe even reward you by doing/delivering/being exactly what you wanted.
