I’m different in that regard. I freely express my opinion however before I do I decide what behavior am I modeling in the process and sometimes that will compel me to modify what I say somewhat or even stay quiet.
I believe our every action teaches, regardless of our intention, so making good communication choices is useful in working towards constructing a society one wants to see
Imagine there was an audience around you with your every social interaction.
That audience is there to learn “how to behave well” and you are their guide.
This is a task I fail at repeatedly. But I try to be cognizant.
But what makes this difficult is:
I don’t want anybody to imitate me. I am not a good teacher or instructor and I would be embarrassed if someone was modeling their behavior after mine.
But whether or not I want someone to model their behavior after me, they might. And because of that, I have to be aware of what I do and say.
