Watch Your Words

 

Watch em

 

Been a few days since I jumped on the old blog here. Sorry for all my faithful readers, been a busy past few days. Concerts, birthdays, and Superbowls took over my writing ability. Now that I have escaped those factors, it’s time to get back down to business!

Starting off with this pretty important topic, let’s go to last Thursday night. This finds your writer here at a rock concert of a band that he really wanted to see, In This Moment. Truly a great experience I should say and thanks again to the band for performing at such a small venue.

Anyways, at this concert the four opening acts were okay at best, but one of them truly stuck out to myself and the group. This is not a good thing, this band was pretty offensive and truly didn’t deserve to share the stage with the headliners. Reason being is not just their music, but their message they wanted to make before their show even started.

Now I am not the most religious man in the world, but I will take offense if someone tries force a belief on me. This band, nicely decide to tell us what he felt about God and Jesus. Basically stating if you liked or believed in them, they hate you. Now, this already turned off about 95% of the venue to this band.

This brings me to my point of the day, watching your words. Now you can make a statement and express your beliefs, just be wary of how you deliver your message. Two things I was told never to speak about in a public setting growing up, religious views and politics, because you never truly know who you will offend.

Never deny what you believe, but never make blanket statements saying you’re going to hell because we don’t believe how you believe, or state that you hate someone because they believe in something you don’t. Just common courtesy and common sense.

Now if this band came out and gave the message a little better, then maybe people would have put the walls down. Sadly, this band didn’t have a chance the fans that were there didn’t care to see them in the first and after that statement many looked away.

In the end and how this deals with your everyday work life is don’t say something you will regret. You can’t tell your boss or customer that you hate them for any reason. If you want to portray a discomfort, share it by all means, but remember to think about how you want to say and how you are going to say.

Learning to speak correctly with common sense is key in this Savage World; that you are no longer living in, but beginning to own!
