Gone are those days when people were more of introvert nature and they refrain themselves from expressing their feelings and emotions in open; ‘limits,’ was the word they follow.
Nowadays, being an introvert is undoubtedly treated as a symbol of one’s narrow-mindedness or in other words, ‘lacks confidence’. However, bygones are bygones and now if you are not extrovert and open-minded, you have to lose the piece of cake, the opportunities, they say.
No wonder, the freedom that we want to enjoy while expressing our notions, is breaching all limits and this openness is an imbalanced combination of both wonders and fears.
Let us first understand the literal meaning of frankness. In dictionary terms, frankness means openness or outspokenness. These days, when most of us believe our ears instead of eyes, frankness has a lot to do.
Being frank not only saves a relation from getting worse but also, fills the gap that is caused by rumors and gossips. Should you talk frankly with the person concerned; you can have a better view of his side of the grass, don’t you?
Orthodox beliefs or the rootless traditions like hiding women behind veils, education to females, female foeticide, believing in stones and trees, have changed now. Openness played a bigger role in it.
“We had a word about it, we made arguments and guess what, we are better now.” So much, this broad-mindedness has given us; nonetheless, not everything that glitters is gold. This openness has made our moral values plummet like a waterfall flowing out from the womb of a mountain.
The word ‘limits’ has disappeared somewhere and the curtains of shame are now no more. Sorry for mentioning, but we have noticed a deterioration in our character, moral values and ethics.
Undeniably, credence behind this frankness is fake because we still cannot accept it fully, can we? We need some solution here to cure this disease called bluntness such as we need to be told about limits.
