For those of you who follow me on Facebook, you may have noticed something strange today. I accidentally turned my whole Facebook page into Japanese first and then Spanish. I do not know how to read either language! :)
It's very interesting trying to turn something back to the proper language when you cannot read the instructions. Ever been there?
How did I do such a thing? I pressed the wrong button because I wasn't intentionally paying attention!
It made me think about how easy it is to push the wrong button and then realize you are speaking a different language than everyone else.
For me, this translates into relationships. Especially relationships with our young adults. Sometimes I press the wrong button and sometimes they do and the outcome is that we are speaking a different language, which just increases the drama and divide in the situation!
Today, consider pausing and intentionally pay attention, so you don't accidentally push the wrong button!
PS: I love helping people speak the proper language in their relationships!
