Speak your mind or don’t. No, speak your mind. Please.
“I’m just saying” is either a passive aggressive ploy to say something direct without appearing to, or it’s a shirking of our responsibility to speak the truth in love, a timid denial of the permission we have to make a contribution.
“I’m just saying” is saying, only not well and not in a way that makes anyone want to follow you.
Don’t “Just” say. Say.
