What does it take to be tough on the Issue and kind on the person


Having the courage to be a voice for things that matter to you can be liberating .

Finding a safe space to find your tribe and have the confidence to have conversations with people who have diverse views can be scary.

Its also an opportunity to learn how to have polite discourse.  We are the product of our life experiences and learning to acknowledge the emotion, be curious and invite joint problem solving is a rewarding journey.

I am still a work in progress.

“Freedom of speech does not give you libellous freedom. Trolls, stalkers, haters, and bullies all need to check themselves — social media is not and never has been a place to threaten or libel — and if people are using it that way (and have no doubt, they are), they need to do some serious reflection as to why they are behaving that way.” Source
