It’s really tempting to engage in the perceived oneupsmanship arguments that creep into our lives. Whether in a forum, a social media post, or within professional networks, such pursuits are frivolous at best and often bring out the worst in people while serving no greater purpose than to show who’s more stubborn. Over the years, I’ve had to learn the hard way that sometimes people will argue a point, then put blinders and earplugs in, acting like they won the day when they really only proved that they still believe that tantrums are a viable means of communication among adults.
If you can’t make your point in a calm, classy, coherent, and convincing fashion, maybe you should keep your mouth shut & your fingers still while putting more energy into opening your eyes & your heart. Time & energy are our most important personal resources. When people demonstrate their commitment to wasting yours, believe them at face value. Smile, nod, & move @realwesleysnipes with @get_repost
