What if you are causing conflicts by accident?
He’s complaining and you want to help him, want to encourage him, give him a different point of view… and everything goes south?
Wondering what happened?
I can’t tell you how many times I see this. And I understand completely – you want to help others see the silver lining, right? Help them be more positive, right?
Well, be careful…
You might be stirring up the hornet’s nest!
I call it, “Positive Arguing.”
It’s looking on the bright side.
Finding those rose-colored glasses and putting them on.
But it’s likely to cause a conflict or shut him down completely.
I made a short 1 minute video about it and what to do instead. Hope you like it!
Looking forward to making more of these. Subscribe to my channel and help me get the word out?
Love to you,

And for the record, it’s my intention to start blogging more – probably a combination of video + written words. My apologies for being inconsistent. Sometimes, I feel like that is the ONLY thing I’m consistent about… being inconsistent… Hope that was funny, albeit true. Thank you for the grace. I’m still a little too busy with teaching, living with and raising teens, and full-time ministry work. Please pray I focus on what He wants me to!
