I am hyper-friendly at times and I come across as awkward when meeting people. Being a extrovert can get the best of me in social situations. I want to be liked, but in the process of being myself people aren’t sure what to think about me. When meeting new people confidence and self esteem are two things I could always use more of. Being nice is a good thing too.
We all want progress, but if you’re on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.
We all struggle with the proverbial foot-in-mouth thing that gets us into trouble. Everyone says something that they don’t mean at times. Its a part of that terminal condition of being human and making mistakes. A friend reminded me how everyone wishes they could turn back time and do things differently or say things differently at least. The best thing one can do is say you are sorry and try not to do it again. Then there are times when you shouldn’t say anything at all.
Being different or divergent isn’t easy.
One thing I like about the folks blogging here is that there is more actual blogging going on. I am a fan of a good original post and you can find it here. Can I say the platform is more mature and it fosters greater discussion and understanding.
Behind every blog, there is a human being. That person is someones child, spouse, partner and friend. Being kind and showing love can have a ripple effect. In our world today so many are going through so much. Love one another and extend grace when needed. Of course we have to call out those who are not blogging by the Golden Rule but do it in a way that they will eventually be kind to others. We are all in this world and life together, be good for goodness sake.
