Whether we are speaking to people in person or in writing–over coffee, on the phone, by text, via email, or online–we are bound to encounter conflict. Because of the nature of my work and blogging, I spend a lot of time online. While this has a multitude of benefits, the downside is all the conflict.
Not only is it like a 24/7 news cycle, but people’s views on everything under the sun are splashed around. I contribute mine too, and it takes great restraint to to be wise in what I post publicly. (I am not always successful.) I see a lot of ugliness and ranting.
I usually ignore it, but a comment thread occasionally stops me and causes me to consider my own point of view.
Today, I am at God-sized Dream writing about one such thread. Will you join me there?
