Do You Respect People When You Write?
Do you respect people when you write? Many online writers have been writing online for a long time. Over time, we tend to post things about people that we know and ourselves. Do you respect the feelings of the people you are writing about? Do you ask if it is all right for you to post something online about them?
Respect for Family Member
I post a lot of personal articles online but not too personal. There are things that I feel should not be public. I have posted articles about my son’s artwork in the past. I have never put anything online without asking my son if it was all right with him if I posted it.
I have also written articles about my relationship with my husband. I ask my husband first before I post any articles about us online. Asking if it is all right to post something also goes for pictures. I would never post a photo that my family did not want me to post. I feel that it is only right to ask first.
For me, getting permission from the person to post something is only right. I respect everyone’s feelings and would never want to post anything that would make someone feels uncomfortable.
Respect for Clients
I am a Reiki Master, and I have worked with people in many spiritual aspects. I have learned over the years that people are interested in what goes on during spiritual practices. Especially, during card reading and spiritual cleansings. Over the years, I have written articles about dream interpretation, Reiki, and other spiritual work. I have never posted any articles about what had happened during one of my sessions without the permission of the people involved. In some cases, I have changed the names because the people have asked me. I always ask before I post anything. I do this out of respect, and I do not want to hurt anyone’s feelings. Many of the things I write about can be very touchy for some people and they done want others to know, they have gone to a spiritual specialist.
I know, most of you do not have clients, like I do. However, I would love to know, if when you are writing articles about other people, do you ask, them if it is all right to post articles about them?
