Words and Where They Go
Looks like we are heading into some rain here and it will be great to soak in before the farmers get started. The ground is still on the cool side but there is word some of the farmers have been out.
We have fire bands on right now in our county due to the extreme fire hazard so I do hope everyone is careful. A careless cigarette tossed out of a vehicle can cause a great deal of loss to people. Please be careful and thoughtful of what you can create.
Welcome again as always to the Fireside... sorry no fire today but the welcome is here so please come in and sit awhile and join us as we look at something in regards to what we write i emails. blogging and other social media sites.
I think I would be safe in saying we have all experienced receiving or sending a message that has gone sideways.You know the ones that have been misinterpreted. Yes even the ones we have sent.
They can be caused simply by taking the meaning wrong on both parts. Maybe even something as silly as what we intended to be funny can go the wrong direction o us or the person sending them. I suppose the question then is how can we avoid this. What is the key to not offending or being offended.
I think the best way is to think before we speak, just the same as we do in real life. Should an issue arrise I think we ned to address it rather than allow it to create a riff in friendship and others in Social Media.
I have belonged to many groups and I see it happen far to often where people like to take control or maybe appear to force their opinions to strongly on the group or individual and chaos breaks out and you have splinter groups started and before long they are pitted against one another. Sad to think that can happen but it happens daily i our lives.
Wearing a mask is not the answer. Be real and honest with yourself first then approach the other and resolve the issue. Take the time even in the online community to search out peace and direct all your efforts towards making things right rather than living in turmoil.
We are all in community, all entitled to make mistakes and yes all should be willing to offer and ask for forgiveness. Seek it today and hopefully everyone can move past their indifferences. Life is far to short to carry anger and bitterness here where so many can find love and understanding.
It is time to put aside the petty differences and come and enjoy all the benefits that can be found reaching out to people all over the world with our words.
