Today's little Professor Gary's school of good communication I am going to take from the humor world. Have you ever told friends or family a funny experience with others you experienced, and there you are laughing or smiling, and they are sullen, totally NOT getting it, like you had felt it? The story or joke falls flat. They were not there but it indeed was great. So I want to talk about
Rolling In Life With Those Had To Be There Moments.
Instead of JUDGING what another did, try to understand the context of the setting. You were not there. Someone else was not where you were. Your silly parents at an older age wearing paper hats at a celebration. A riot. Well maybe to YOU ALONE.
CONTEXT is all important in all forms of communication. In that Democratic primary years ago Howard Dean yelled out that scream with some enthusiasm and it went viral like he was a lunatic. It was just joy at winning that individual primary and encouraging the voters to continue on to other states. Without context, it became a sound bite of craziness. The rule for ROLLING with what you may not understand about another is give things time, keep watching, building up a body of evidence, asking QUESTIONS. Why were your parents wearing party hats? Were they drinking excessively? NO DUFUS it was called massive silliness and sheer family joy, and if you don't get it, I am not explaining it further to you. WHY?
YOU HAD TO BE THERE.
Well we all can relate. Cut people slack. Will your possibly COMPLETELY WRONG thoughts matter a year from now? Are you just adding more negativity to the universe with your jumping to conclusions? Many people say if you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything. At least not for awhile. Be patient and above all kind with other people.
Remember if you get hurt, NEVER in retaliation hurt back. You might even surprise them when you DON'T hurt them back. It has a magical effect in the world. Think context of a setting, be easy with others, and above all love them like there is no end to your love for them!!!
