Last night I made a conscious choice to unfollow or unfriend a few people in my social media network.
If you have figured out that this is you, this blog isn’t an apology, it’s an explanation.
One thing that we stress about in our change leadership programs is having a strong support network whether it’s friends, family, co-workers, mentors, etc. I believe your peeps on Facebook or tweeps on Twitter are also a part of that support system.
We also talk about choosing your attitude and being the positive change you want to be in this world. If you choose to be negative, it is more than likely to cause you to have the corresponding behaviors and results.
I have people in my network that are a negative impact in this world, and like to let me know about it through a tweet or status update.
Now don’t get me wrong, I too have used my social media channels to vent my frustration from time to time. I even did it last night as I was stuck in traffic that caused my typical 1 ½ hour drive home from Red Deer to be 2 ½ hours. However, if there is nothing that spews from your Twitter account other than a constant stream of complaining and negativity without you taking action to solve it, just know that I choose not be a part of that anymore.
If you choose to unfollow or unfriend me too, I’m cool with that.
Just know that you were killing my rainbow bro.
