Sounds of Silence #CompassionateSunday — 5 Comments

  1. I speak out much too often, I think. In fact, when you say “arrogant and controlling” it kind of reminds me of myself yesterday during a discussion with my boyfriend. We disagreed on whether Trump would be bad for foreign relations, and I totally told him that his news sources weren’t believable if the source had no chance of winning a Pulitzer. Lol. I still don’t trust his news sources, but I should hide my strong opinions and emotions a little. Is that the kind of thing you had in mind?

    • Yes. I hope we can figure out a way to say that it’s important where and how we get our news without sounding judgmental and elitist. Mostly because I’m afraid that people don’t hear me when I sound judgmental and elitist, so they discount my opinion even when it has a strong basis.

  2. I’m working on this myself. Up until a few months ago, I had a boss who was impetuous and controlling and bullying. Finally, after four years of this, I learned how to respond to her tantrums by saying, “Can I get back to you about this later?” It worked well for me this last year and things got much better.
