A quick note for communication
Posted on 21/07/21 09:21am
Are you consistent?
You're direct and honest on social media,
even a little caustic, when the time warrants it,
dare I say, a little cruel, on occasion.
But are you consistent?
Do you use the same language, epithets,
when face to face with your interlocuter?
If you don't... why don't you?
I don't think I've ever known a time where
people have relished snatching the chance to
be pissed off at someone who made the mistake
of thinking that our communication used the same language
as it did a couple of hours ago.
This will to snare a passer-by who's wearing high heels
on sneakers day, will implode.
At least be brave, and say what you'd say, online.
And then show real courage, and listen to the answer
without interruption, without screaming them into submission.
