If you just read the title of my post and thought… “Who are you talking about?! Are you talking about me?” …then you are guilty of assuming.
With all of the technology in today’s society, some social aspects have deteriorated. I’m not saying that people don’t know how to amiably approach others. I’m saying that people misunderstand thoughts and ideas via technology.
When I say something similar to “so frustrating” as my Facebook status, more than likely, I’m not talking about you. I’m probably referring to the loud and annoying children in the neighborhood. …or if you catch something like “ARGH! so lame.” as my away message, it’s because I’m probably peeved at the lines at the post office. If I comment after you in a thread with my thoughts, I’m not counteracting what was previously stated (unless, of course, it’s something that needs to be addressed, haha).
In a nutshell, we should all stop assuming that everything is a personal attack. Seriously… it’s just a comment, simple text message, email, blog title, etc.
Don’t take things so seriously. Life is too short to waste your time with misunderstandings. 🙂
I’m curious to know what you think.
