To respond or not to respond

Beyond these 👇 goals, it's not worth it to invest emotionally:

  • Defend your reputation.
  • Correct misinformation.
  • Find a resolution.
  • Show others your page is a safe space.

When you do want to respond, decide whether to be serious or funny...and to respond in public or private.

There's no harm in standing your ground on issues that you believe in.

  • When you come up against trolls because they get their fix from negativity...nothing to do with you personally.
