it is. Most people, however, have a desire to be accepted and feel uncomfortable sticking out for fear of being the mole that gets whacked. In a culture of where sameness and sheeple behavior are the norm, it takes courage to raise questions. You can also expect a cold shoulder (even a boycott) from those who will be made uncomfortable by your question(s).

"Would anyone miss you if you weren't there?" These words reflect what many people think although their actions say otherwise. Not speaking up because you have a different opinion is a sad way to live. Just as putting up with the same ideas because you're comfortable with the people spewing them.

I suspect you don't have to worry about being honest. It is however good to ask the question from time to time. Maybe I'm too tough on myself. I like to keep sharp and challenged in my thinking.
