Saying the right thing…

Saying the right thing… | SocialAction2014 | Scoop.it

Words are my friend: I enjoy playing with them, reorganising them, manipulating them, and looking up new ones – all in an attempt to construct a sentence which says what I want it to say.

 

But recently I have found myself struggling to say the right thing. There are three ladies who I follow on Twitter who are dealing with cancer; they tweet their way through their battles with honesty, braveness and humour.

 

But of course, by choosing to share their stories in public (for which I am in no way criticising – that would be a tad pot and kettle ha), they are inviting responses to their situations. And I find myself worrying about what the right response is. Have I got the balance between empathy and humour? Will it make them smile? What if I say the wrong thing?...
