Reality Check

The truth hurts

Dear Carolyn,

Why are you always so sarcastic? Don’t you worry about what people will think?

Dear Penelope,

I don’t worry too much about what people think since they don’t do it very often. Besides, as your wingman, I have to tell the truth. Sometimes that may seem harsh and sometimes the humor may sting. The reality is, most people who ask me what to do already know what to do. They need someone to confirm their choices but are too confused/depressed/overwhelmed to recognize the solutions.  It’s because I care about the letter writers that I am blunt. We all have way too many people in our lives who tell us what we want to hear. I am not one of them!

I’m just say’n,

Carolyn
