Someone please tell me why it's sooooo damn hard to not offend someone when you're trying to express your thoughts, concerns, and feelings on something you're a part of? I swear, I try so hard not to come across as intentionally rude but I always end up on the wrong side of the bat, unintentionally offending the other person. I try, but am I not trying hard enough? It's frustrating. I hate it. Behold my stupid, completely obvious question. Can adults be blunt and still unintentionally come across as offensive in another person's context in general, more prominently speaking, on the internet no matter how hard they try to not sound rude? I'm pretty sure the answer is yes, they definitely can be but I just want to make sure that I'm not the only one (as a teenager) who has this flaw that needs to be immensely improved upon. I tried my best to explain my concerns, feelings, and thoughts dealing with the introduction, but I ended up unintentionally stating thinly veiled insults to their writing style. I know I need to fix it, I know I need to be more careful with my words- I've admittedly gone through so much drama in a past website I used to be a part of and got shunned basically, because I had a blunt persona with a dash of belligerence. Those were the old days though, but as of now, I'm trying to be more... I don't know... Not so offensive sounding when chatting in general? P.S. When I explained my feelings regarding the introduction to the one x one roleplay, I wasn't being hostile, just unfortunately wording things wrong and accidentally offending the other person. I like to think that I really try to the best of my ability but god, it's so hard to be yourself when you're just plain blunt with everything and everyone. I still end up offending people and it's just... It's so frustrating for me.
