I read a lot of dumbness
on loops, chats,
and in emails.

I KNOW these opinions can’t be changed.
I KNOW that responding to them
will only bring me trouble.
But I HAVE to respond.
I simply HAVE to.

So what I do
is I press reply to the email,
I delete the email address
(a VERY important step),
and I draft up my response.
I put as much care and research
into that response
as I would into any of my replies.

And then,
instead of pressing send,
I press delete.

I feel the same validation
and sense of relief,
yet I suffer from
none of the nasty side effects.

Allow yourself to respond to dumbness.
It’ll make you feel better.
Simply don’t send that response.

    Makes me think of this…
    Wisdom has 2 parts:
    1. Having a lot to say
    2. Not saying it.

    Thanks for a great blog,
