They should. I’ve always said that your actions should define your words. They should go hand in hand. It takes both to be true.
Now, I’m second guessing myself. Struggling with the politics of life. My professional life and personal life have been contradicting me. The control freak in me is freaking out.
Is it fair to read between the lines? Is it necessary? If you don’t say what you need to say but do what you should, should you get a pass? Professional and personal.
Because my last post, “Do you just love the way I love you?,” caught some heat. I was told that men, in personal situations, should be judged far heavier on their actions than words. Because, “men don’t communicate the same way women do.”
Ummm…okay. Whatever, sir.
I think it takes both. You should communicate in a way that the two are in sync. That’s it, personally and professionally.
And with that, I ride the professional wave (with no other choice) and watch the personal wave pass me by.
