Say what feels right, no matter what the circumstance is. Remember, authenticity rocks. We’ve gotten used to the pause ‘n’ play way of interacting, online. We type, then stop, then backspace, delete and reword ad nauseum. How will what I’m trying to say be ‘heard’ once it comes across? Well it’ll never be heard just right unless your voice is attached. Too much time is WASTED editing, re-editing, worrying.
My point? Not really sure except that it may be time to re-evaluate where your time is actually spent when you’re communicating. Don’t worry so much about all the different ways to say one thing. Just state it, done. If you feel it may get misinterpreted, pick up the phone and let the other side hear your voice.
