Rule number 1 – never put anything in writing!

When I first started working in business, in fact probably when I was in high school, I learned never put anything in writing.

What I mean by that is if you don’t want something held against you or if you are not promising something don’t put it in writing. Once it is written down you are committed.

Of course you should say what you mean and mean what you say, but especially in today’s hyper political environment. Things get taken out of context.

If I say I don’t like tomatoes that aren’t ripe, someone will come along and say I don’t like tomatoes.

Since the advent of emails and texts incredible numbers of people have uncovered marital infidelity after discovering unseemly correspondence. Certainly I am not condoning that behavior but it is a clear illustration of the issue.

More recently selfies of the naked variety seem to get hacked or leaked etc. or worse yet videos between couples.

I agree with something Jennifer Lawrence said looking at these pictures only perpetuates the offense.

Quite honestly though, it really goes to rule number 1. Taking a picture is just the same as putting it in writing. If you don’t want anyone else to see it then don’t take a picture of it.

If you are in a loving relationship, as she states, he can go for a few days or weeks without. In fact a little abstinence can create a lot of passion.

I do feel for the people who have been violated and to do that to someone is WRONG. But be smart and don’t document every little thing about your life. None of us can live under the microscope without being embarrassed or worse.
