    1. Thanks! Yeah, this is something I’m pretty passionate about. This particular self-deception is really common and I think it’s deeply unhealthy. A lot of people will refuse to stand up for themselves and then name that refusal “kindness.” By mislabeling something negative with a positive term, the negative behavior get reinforced. Some people even end up feeling kind of self-righteous in that.

      Disagreement isn’t inherently unkind. Neither is rebuke. It’s really hard to grow without healthy conflict.

      1. I think it’s reinforced by society. Standing up comes with a lot of negative impacts on your life and that can sometimes be why people would prefer not to do so.
