Don’t Mistake Lack of Response for Lack of Respect
How many of you get secretly upset when someone does not email you back? Does it make you feel small or insignificant (“I must not be important enough.”)… or defensive/judgmental (“Who taught them social etiquette?”)? Then you have a reality check and wonder, since when did I start basing my worth on email responses or how many “likes” my Facebook post got or retweets on Twitter or connections I have on LinkedIn? I am exaggerating to make a point, but not by much.
