Emotional tweeting, posting, texting, emailing….we are all *mostly * humans, having a human experience, both online and in REAL time.
In my opinion, some of the best content comes from emotions that trigger passion. Passion has been the touchstone for inspiration for me from the beginning. Enthusiasm for music, that is contagious, is my signature. My love of Social Media, People, Music, Entertainment and the Broadcasting Industry is where the majority of my content originates.
All those deep seated feelings. Feelings, that make me, happy.
However, every rose has it’s thorns, and I have bad days too. It would be fair to say that we all do, and it is impossible to know where others are coming from.
Basically we have two emotions: fear and love. All others are the by product of one of the two: positive emotions come from love and negative emotions come from fear. Love makes us happy, peaceful, serene, joyful. Fear causes anger, hate, anxiety, guilt.
The way I see it we need both, but I prefer to be happy, although if I were happy all the time, I wouldn’t be human I’d be an alien game-show host or something.
This post was inspired from emotions. The other day started in a funk. My dog has had some health issues and this always strikes fear into me. AND my fear came out sideways. A dear friend of mine recommended I read something. Rather than be grateful that she thought highly enough of me to even bother suggesting this article, I came out of left field and pretty much insulted the person she thought highly enough to refer to me, to read.
Lord knows I am not perfect, and on a good day never as graceful as I would like to be. I was embarrassed by my actions, apologized promptly and started paying attention to what was REALLY going on with me: FEAR.
Fear of the unknown, and fear of the loss of something that means a lot to me.
That IS the emotional “tweeting” I am referring to.
When we are writing from a place of ”love” it usually inspires others although when said love was manufactured by chemicals it can go wrong, real quick, especially if we drunk text our boss and confess undying love while he/she is at home, in bed with their spouse.
A thought, followed by a feeling, followed by an action. Somewhere in here we are responsible for the outcome. My best friend used to always say “you need to pause when agitated or doubtful.” (I am a work, in progress.)
Fear can turn real ugly, real fast ie anger, resentment, hate…and when we start typing with our “middle finger” if you know what I mean, it can be mean, very hurtful and pretty unproductive, unless you want people to think you’re a jerk.
No one can tell you how to conduct yourself online or in correspondence, but from my experience, just take a second and think about what “finger” you are typing with when you respond, or engage.
Have you ever said something you regret? How did you deal with it?
