I’ve been following Heather’s very interesting blog for a while now, and am learning a lot. I have written about avoiding negative behaviour myself on this blog, but I’m aware that I don’t always do what I say. Sometimes my blog is angry in tone and I write negatively and offend people. With hindsight I realise that I could have approached the same topic positively, rather than seeming to react against things I disagree with.
Interestingly, Humans are Weird also blogged about negative behaviour just recently, so I feel a theme developing. It seems to me that we could all learn to get along much better together, but only if we approach the problem rationally like Heather and actually teach people how to do this. Just wanting to be nice isn’t enough.
Listening to some politicians arguing on the radio this morning, I know there’s a long way to go, so the sooner we get started the better.
