Did I Offend You???
Have you ever discovered or realized you offended someone and it was days, weeks, or months later. Surprised that you “offended” or hurt them by something you DID or something you said, either in person, through a text, or email like this one?
And YOU HAD NO IDEA you had done that?
I don’t know about you but it’s happened to me quite a few times during my lifetime, and it hurts every single time. I have an email list of over 10,000 people that I’ve built organically, and I still feel extremely hurt and take it personally when someone unsubscribes.
When I find out I OFFENDED someone, especially someone I really care about, it breaks my heart. I immediately try to fix it and sometimes we can screw it up even worse with impulsivity. I’ve never, ever, ever done it intentionally and depending on the person and the severity, I have broken down and cried when I discover I’ve offended someone.
What about you?
Unfortunately, this type of stuff can damage your relationships and even affect your CASH FLOW in your business and career.
Has someone ever told you that you “HAVE NO FILTER!”? (my son tells me this ALL THE TIME)
Whether you are totally ADHD or ADD ‘ish or a CREATIVE entrepreneur, a high-energy person, a “highly-spirited” extrovert, a Type-A Achiever personality, offending someone is bound to happen to all of us at one point in time.
