The Power of Tone
Tuesday, February 05, 2013
I consider this environment to be pretty positive for the most part but after a post last week, I got a response that I wasn't so happy with. I don't know how it was intended and I hope it was intended to be helpful but it just sort of sounded mean. The first time I read it I was thinking "I'd really like to just slap you in your face" and after the second read I was still irritated. It was enough for me to pretty much not attempt to do any of the extra point stuff on my page for a few days although I tracked food and work outs.
If nothing else, it was a reminder to me that EVERYONE here is trying to accomplish something and needs a little help or motivation. Even if you are just trying to get points, it should be in a positive manor and helpful. So check your tone in your responses and make sure you are conveying the message you intend to convey.
