A passing thought:
Always try and be diplomatic. Speak with compassion and diligence. Be thoughtful and wise. Be careful not to tread on other people’s feelings or toes.
Play back in your mind what you feel you want to say. Will what you want to say, hurt the other person? Being diplomatic isn’t easy as we think, it’s easy to get it wrong, but it’s achievable. Diplomacy is an art form.
It starts with each of us. Being diplomatic encourages tolerance and healing, particularly amongst families.
