Do you ever write a blog post, even go as far as posting it to your site, and then decide someone may read it and get their feelings hurt so you take it down?
I just did that. I’ve been watching so many people around me unravel, and the post I wrote described some of the situations. Then I thought about who might be reading this blog. I have over 300 followers, but I have no idea who some of them are. They are just email addresses. So, I tucked that post into my private file, and may pull it out some time later.
The title of the post was “An audience of one,” meaning me. I’ve been watching so many people making such bad decisions, and yet as an audience of one, I cannot get anyone’s attention to change what they are doing. Writing about it was cathartic for me but not life-changing for those whose decisions bring them onto a stage fraught with bad outcomes.
Are you also watching people make bad decisions and yet unable to change them? How are you handling it? Maybe you can offer me some advice.
