Good Morning My Friends
“Tact is the knack of making a point without making an enemy.” (Sir Isaac Newton)
When we’re right, we’re right-and we want everyone to know it. Funny how others roll their eyes and cough a little behind their hands when we tell them just what we think. Discouraging how they don’t agree with us right away.
There’s no problem with having strong opinions-it shows that we care about things. But if we wield our opinions like clubs, we will never convince anyone that our opinions are right.
NOTE TO SELF:
When I’m in a conversation with others, I can tell them clearly what I think without being pushy about it. (Linda Picone)
Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own unguarded thoughts. (Buddha)
I have many times felt , as some of you may have felt as well, that we were absolutely right about a situation. But reflecting on the words above, could our justification or portrayal of that circumstance been handled in a much better manner? If everyone could just take that extra minute to think before speaking others may be more receptive to listening and understanding our point of view or opinion. (SH)
I hope everyone had a good week so far, and hope the message above helps in ending the week on a positive note.
Take care everyone,
