Judging by the posts popping up in my Facebook feed, we could all use this advice lately. We are wired to do something when we sense danger. The problem is that we are sensing negative posts or comments as if they are a saber tooth tiger in our caves. We feel as if we need to pounce and save ourselves by countering with vile comments of our own. We could all benefit by taking a moment and realizing we will survive if we don’t fight back. Reacting to anger with anger never works.
Not to be a self-promoter, but I cover this concept and how to respond in my ebook, You Can’t Beat Me! (bonus: all the profits go to maintaining and growing this site).
