Folks, I am GUILTY…AS CHARGED!!!
I do believe MANY people commit this SAME “VIOLATION”…
OMG!!! I have got to “pause” RIGHT HERE!!! Folks, I have written fake citations (#7365921) as Sherriff Allen on the palm of one hand with a finger-tip from the other hand for ridiculous “violations”!!! So, so,true!!! And so, so funny!!!
Okay, back on point now…I will often present my opinions with such passion that I sound angry. And I sooooo, TOTALLY, used to mistake this passion for anger myself!!! But, I am living, folks. Living and learning…as I go. I now recognize this degree of passion…and… “IT IS WHAT IT IS”!!! PASSION!!! NOT ANGER!!!
Now, opinions and thoughts are very, let’s say…”intimate”… to each individual. We tend to hold them closely. Defend them righteously. Present them passionately!!! Praise God!!! ALLELUJAH!!! You know, like a passionate minister preaching The Word!!!
This is, yet, another word of caution regarding communication…try to calm yourself during or immediately following heightened discussions by reminding yourself that loud volume can simply be indicative of “PASSION,” not “ANGER”. Always attempt to clear the air, however. Any information interpreted incorrectly can have a negative impact on a team’s ability to work together successfully.
GO TEAM!!! WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!
