You remember the adage; you get more with honey than you do with vinegar. Well, it does work. I know, I use it as often as I can.
Early on in my learning about the breast augmentation was ultimately got, I came across a plastic surgery practice that also ran a forum for members to discuss all manner of things relating to breast surgery. Well, me being me, and with a thirst for knowledge, I joined. But I didn’t join and go in all gang busters, or under false colors. Right up front I showed deference to their group as it was overwhelmingly cis-women. I explained right up front who I was and that I was transgender and that I understood if they would prefer me not being there.
Well, you would have thought I had just walked in with champagne and caviar. They were falling all over themselves in welcoming me in. And they were very engaging. And when the forum got too big and it moved to Discord, they insisted I join them. Wow, did I feel good.
And the same thing happened with my primary care doctor and with my dentist’s office. I explained to them about me, and I should deference to them. That showed them I was putting them first and me second. And that goes a long way to making everyone feel happy and safe.
Acting in a selfish, it’s all about me, manner will most certainly cause others to crawl back in their shell and be defensive and then everyone becomes combative. And that shows the world the wrong side of that beautiful picture that is you. So remember, honey is a wonderful cure for what ails most folks…..
