>Blanket Statements

>Have you ever seen or heard statements hurled out into the universe
As if the person who it was meant for should recognize its their uni-curse
When did we get so impersonal that we can’t tell one person what they seem to be doing wrong
And why do others seem to co-sign their words and just go along
We should realize that everyone does not always recognize their own errors
So we end up expending our own energy becoming the Blanket Statement Bearer
Not realizing that blanket statements do not change another’s behavior
But maybe if we spoke to them individually we could in deed be their savior
We should never assume that the one person it was meant for got the blanket statement
Maybe the cover was too small and they were not in line for direct placement
The best way to ensure that your words will be more effective
Is to go to the source so no one has to play detective
