A CLASSY ANSWER….
Often we can be put on the spot with someone who simply is looking for us to say something negative….Someone who simply wants us to join in the verbal “beating someone up….” People pull others into conversations that normally they would never enter into…but somehow they get caught off guard and fall right into the negativity that the other person is promoting….So how do we respond….?
I believe SNAP DECISIONS are often made based on what our natural responses to something would be….so we have to be aware of what we are thinking in the first place…..I love a CLASSY ANSWER….someone who avoids being pulled into that muck of a conversaton……Someone who simply comes up with a classy answer that leaves smelling like a rose and the other person smelling like they just returned from the garbage dump…Yes, I love a Class Act….
There are many ways to respond to an on the spot question or situation….Some of my favorites are “I will think on it and then get back to you….” “ Is that right?”…..” or sometimes I really turn the tables on someone who wants me to say something bad about someone else…..I simply say “Oh I think they are fantastic….” So in other words I threw a wrench into the conversation by saying something good about the person in mention….
Do not allow yourself to be pulled into the garbage dump with those who want to wallow around in the sewage…..Simply come up with your own class act answers so that you will not later get pie in your face for something you regret having said….
There are always going to be situations where we are put on the spot and others who will try to trick us into saying what they want to hear….Don’t even go there…..Simply have your own Class Act Answer…
DON’T OPEN THE DOOR……
Simply do not open the door to what you do not want….So often people know what they don’t want but get talked into opening the door to it anyways…..When we know something is not right for our lives we simply need to say “NO” to it….not a “Maybe…” Saying “Maybe” is like leaving the door open enough for them to get their foot in partway in the door…to the point one cannot shut it…..
Learning to not open the door or entertain things that we know are not good for our lives is simply what we must do when we know it is not right for who we are……Keep the door shut….unless it is for what you want…
KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT….WHEN TO SAY NOTHING….
There are times that we simply need to keep our mouth shut and say nothing. Especially at times that we have a whole lot to say….Sometimes the best thing we can say is NOTHING……Saying nothing does not put us in a position of weakness….It actually in many cases puts us in a position of strength….
Often we say things in a moment of emotion that we cannot take back….But if we have kept our lips sealed till later we often say exactly what we really want to say……I often write everything on paper first that I want to say, hold on to it for a day, and then decide if it is still exactly what I want to say. For me, if it is, then in the right ways I will put my point across….Sometimes a letter can be better than spoken words because we tend to say exactly what we mean. The disadvantage is that those words on paper or email are always out there to be read again long after the situation has cleared….
So think before you speak….and consider KEEPING YOUR MOUTH SHUT….
WHEN TO BEND AND WHEN NOT TO BEND…
There are times we should bend….some give and take in a situation while there are other times we should not budge an inch….Depending on the situation we have to determine if it is right for us to negotiate on certain things or agree….while other times when we know what we are standing for is absolutely right we should not budge an inch……Discernment is key to knowing which to do….
IS THE WORLD CRAZY….or am I simply watching a movie?
