When I first began posting blogs, I made a spelling error that spellcheck missed. A reader sent me a message correcting my error, which I am grateful for but the way it was communicated was sarcastic and rude.
I wonder why the individual felt that approach was needed? What would have been much more effective was a simple, clear compassionate message. Usually when a person is sarcastic and rude with others, they treat themselves the same way.
Mistakes happen to us all. It is an opportunity to learn and grow, rather than get stuck in the downward spiral of negativity.
When input is communicated in a positive, solution based manner we are much more receptive. The practice of kindness when you or someone else makes a mistake will go a long way.
Let me know in the comments below how you react to mistakes. Can you make a shift to kindness and compassion?
