Name calling is like clutter in a home...it distracts from your message.
Calling someone a name is like clutter in a home when you’re trying to sell it. The distraction takes away from the message you’re trying to send.
All you have to do is listen to the news...doesn’t matter which channel...and you will hear a newsreader (I don’t think they make true journalists anymore) calling someone a name as they read the story.
This isn’t about politics but about what we’ve become. I was always taught that when you call someone a name you’re showing your ignorance and just grasping into thin air rather than saying what you mean.
Besides showing your own inadequacy, you also distract from any message that you’re trying to send.
The next time you want to discuss something and you’re a bit hot under the collar...count to 10 and think about what it is you’re trying to say. If you have to be silent for those 10 or 20 seconds, so be it. Gather your thoughts and deliver your message.
Don’t grab a name out of thin air. You’re better than that!
