He is just ranting and raving. Isn't that normal? So why would anyone be upset by that? Does it demoralise the team? Which is louder? The one who rants and rave or the one who quietly tells you the truth? The one is louder on the outside but the other rings loud in the mind, maybe? Or is the lie more comforting?
Could the answer be that the one that rants and rave is destroying and the one who quietly tells you the truth is actually building!!! Can you tell the difference? Both seems loud right?
Or have we gotten so used to the ranting and raving, it is normal for us? And it is the quiet truth now that seems so loud.
