Be Tactful!

Saturday, January 28, 2012

The shepherd always tries to persuade the sheep that their interests and his own are the same.
- Stendhal, 19th century French writer

Tact is the ability to tell someone to go to Hell and have them looking forward to the trip.

    sounds like the Shepherd is a politician.

and as for the tact trip...I need to work on that. When I get angry at someone, I often find myself literally 'EATING' my words rather than confront the person, for fear of words I can't take back. But those unexpressed words can implode inside of you. I've got to start reading the 'ART OF SEDUCTION" By Robert Greene and his 48 RULES OF POWER

    We sometimes forget that true friends are more than people who cheer us on and comfort us....
They are also the ones who try to guide us when we lose ourselves to our INNER CHILD
