Social media and positive comments (post 1 of 2)


A comparison of two articles follows;

Article A
I often find that sharing my approach with others allows them to decide what might be appropriate for them. 

Article B
I often see posts where people bash others and then tell them how they should act or behave. The more appropriate thing to do is to give your opinions and thoughts about the topic.


------------------------------------------

Ask yourself...

 "Which of these two articles best reflects the way I want to treat people?"

My personal approach has evolved to ask myself;

- "Will suggesting people are incorrect as the starting point add value to what I am trying to say?"

- "Will telling people they are wrong open them up to listen?"

- "Can I share my approach in a positive way and still add value?"

Personally, I prefer to learn from those who don't start by telling me I'm (insert your negative word or comments here).

I seriously considered simply removing everything in this article and posting as...
"I often find that sharing my approach with others allows them to decide what might be appropriate for them."

The post you are reading in it's entirety and the fact that it could have added value with just the one paragraph is for your consideration. 

My aim is to help some of you out there struggling to let yourselves be heard.

What you have to add or share
might be awesome on it's own.
