Feeling you need to walk on eggshells is:
a trauma response
a red flag
You don't have to walk on eggshells not to hurt others if you have no intention of hurting anyone, you're not responsible for how they perceive your words.
Are you walking on eggshells? this is a proof that you have no intention to harm anyone... So allow yourself to let go of that fear because from the moment you have a clean heart, you don't have to worry about how others will perceive your words, it then becomes their responsibility, their perception according to their own triggers.
