Prepare for the fallout.
While growing up, many adults offered good advice like, “Do not wake up the sleeping bear." “Don’t poke a hornet’s nest.” Or “Let the sleeping dog lie.” "Don't shake a burdened tree." All for good reason.
Conversations on social media platforms create an opportunity to share information between one another, to catch up, to teach, to learn and grow. Relationship building comes from like-mindedness and healthy respect.
Some people see on-line conversations as an opportunity to angrily deflect, verbally purge, to be heard above everyone else, at any cost to those present. It is an intentional act and clear lack of respect to all!
Let's face it, there are those who:
- feel the need to pick apart another's words
- insert themselves just for argument's sake
- or attack those who share differing opinions
Opposing views are welcomed, clicking off and moving along works too. Showing superiority, incessantly ranting on-line is a good enough judge of character and not acceptable by any standard in my world.
Don't come around shaking my tree too hard, you just might get some fallout and I'm a pretty good aim!
