Practice Sarcasm Distancing.
Sarcasm has always been a thing. Some using in only joking manners while others use to bully, to insult and too attack. As communication has become more and more toxic in recent years and with this compounding quarantine fatigue and COVID19, as well as a divide in the country, it feels like it has amplified a great deal.
From the news, to social media and everywhere else, the tone and temperature in some ways, has become more toxic than the virus it self. It’s almost as if for some people, it is easier to be brutal than it is be beautiful.
Consider #sarcasmdistancing today
So while there is no overarching way to make people nice.
And, we clearly can’t tell someone to be nice, perhaps, the middle road is to ask for people to consider sarcasm distancing even before we find out when the social distancing will end. And, Social media is not toxic, when you consider thinking about it a little deeper. Could it be that you are connected, following or reading toxic content from those that you have allowed to make it toxic for you.
Practice Sarcasm Distancing
So the ask or the approach to consider in this blog, and some intelligence to consider as well…
Practice Sarcasm distancing.
Consider moving away from the toxic tones, the sarcastic responses and the hate .
Try keeping communication, interactions and responses healthier, even if others aren’t.
Amplified authentic opinions can be driven with passion while still anchored in respect for those that have a different view.
Honor, patience and understanding can amplify debates and disagreements into better conversations to find better resolve.
It is great to be ignited and excited about your opinion, but when you shut down, insult, attack or choose to judge someone for a differing opinion, how does that allow for healthy conversations or better understanding?
