“Tell Me How You Really Feel” Doesn’t Exist In Many Other Languages

“Why don’t you tell me how you really feel”  – you know that expression we commonly use sarcastically when someone expresses a strong opinion?  – Well, it doesn’t exist in many, of not most, other languages. Why? Because expressing a strong opinion or a judgment is completely normal, acceptable and expected in other cultures. A judgment doesn’t shock anyone. And that’s how it should be, as that’s a sign of real freedom. Hence, this response simply wouldn’t make any sense to those other people who don’t mind judging or being judged.
