How much time do you spend texting, tweeting or emailing when a phone call would have been more pleasant and appreciated? I believe we as a society have moved away from talking to one another in deference to scripting it into a not so well verse few words of text! Wassup wit dat? Help me understand - do we not like the convo anymore? Let me know ur thoughts! A bit curious.
In today's world of expanded tolerance and change - should a mediator be able to demonstrate empathy working with a same sex couple experiencing marital issues or relational problems to be effective? Looking for comments as I do this research. Where does one park their value system to be an effective facilitated neutral in this process. Besides same sex marriage and unions seem to be having more societal acceptance. What say you fellow bloggers????
We can often
obtain what we want most by conversely expressing what we like least.
This all started because I wanted to learn about the world
of twitter and what it meant to “tweet”.
How do I follow others? How
do I get others to follow me? My
daughter often encouraged me to be on regularly and just write or more
precisely “express myself”. But
what do I have to write that others want to read and then comment about. However, it occurred to me that I
like others simply wanted to be heard and have some attention. Now, mind you, this medium has proven
to be an excellent way to communicate in the moment and has changed peoples
lives around the globe – but ok what about me. Whose life will I change and to what end? It then occurred to me that there are
things I want to say to not only engage others, but to also provoke
thoughts. Therefore, this maiden
voyage of verbiage attempts to explain why and how this journey begins.
I have been exposed to a process called Polarity Management
– in this process if one can ultimate your greatest fears it can lead you to
your greatest opportunities understanding that there are polarities that co
exist and as a result can help us to understand how we function with the “highs
and lows” of each like taking in the good oxygen and letting out the not so
good nitrogen in order to breathe.
It happens and we just do it without even thinking about it. Makes sense in a simplistic kind of
way. So let me ask – are you able
to talk about what you really like least about your significant other? Your
boss? Yourself? In order to make better about what you
most want out of life; or better yet what life has to potentially offer you?
Haveyou ever noticed that what motivates us the most are
the things we want the least? Why
is it that we spend so much time acting the opposite of who we really are not
to accomplish/be what we really are?
I am not a social scientist or behaviorist - but I am someone who has spent a significant part of my
life doing just those things to only desire the converse results.
Thatis what has sparked me to write this narrative.
