Diplomacy

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.

  1. I agree this is not always easy, but necessary if people are to get along and not cause bad feelings amongst themselves.

    What you say cannot always be taken back regardless of how many times you say you are sorry. Sometimes when the damage is done it cannot be repaired.

  2. I agree with you. Once it’s out there, there is no taking it back.

    I try to think about what I’m saying before I say it even with family members.
