  • *Intro*

  • *Snap*

  • Conversations are probably the most important, but also delicate way we communicate with each other.

  • What we say and how we say it affects a lot of what we intend to mean.

  • You probably grew up with a mom or dad or any adult telling you that "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it at all"

  • or "Think before you speak".

  • Well essentially that's what discretion is.

  • Actually, if the only thing you have to say might come off as mean, be a little careful with your wording.

  • "Yes that top makes you look T H I C C..."

  • "...and there's nothing wrong with that. I love you. Don't hurt me".

  • *Awkward silence*

  • "We're late because you're slow"

  • But I like to live by an old saying in Sufism

  • Before you speak, you should let your words pass through three different gates.

  • 1. Is it true?

  • 2. Is it kind?

  • 3. And is it necessary?

  • And this has helped me a lot with interacting with other people.

  • As kids we didn't really think about what we said.

  • It was usually just word vomit where we played ignorant to what they meant or the impact they had on those who received it.

  • Like those kids who retaliate to their parents disciplining them saying things like "I hate you mom" and "I'm gonna run away" or some bullshit empty threats.

  • *Smacks lips*

  • Look here privileged ten-year-old. I'm sorry you got your Xbox taken away because you prioritized it over your other responsibilities..

  • But you'd probably die out there after a day without your parents, let's be honest.

  • Like, if you're gonna run away and you meant it..

  • You'd just...

  • You'd just you just do it without announcement.

  • Like if someone kidnapped you and held you for ransom..

  • And they went to the kitchen for a few minutes, you're not gonna be like..

  • "Hey! I hate you! If you don't set me free, I'm gonna run away!"

  • If you have the opportunity just fucking run.

  • Okay, maybe not a good analogy. Don't run away kids.

  • You'll.. you'll get your Xbox back. Your parents did pay for it after all.

  • Anyway... Yeah, discretion.

  • I come by a plethora of people who don't exactly think about what they say before it leaves their ugly mouth.

  • People often get carried away with their sense of freedom of speech..

  • And disregard the consequences of their words or actions and fail to display the empathy needed for us to understand each other.

  • Just because you CAN say it doesn't mean you HAVE to.

  • Again, Is it true? Is it kind? And is it necessary?

  • If it fails any of these, you might want to reconsider letting it pass through, but if it still manages to force its way past the gates..

  • Maybe don't be surprised if nobody likes you.

  • *Smacks lips* You know?

  • A couple of months ago I went to Crunchyroll Expo.

  • *Cough cough* Use https://www.crunchyroll.com/domics for 14 free premium days. *Cough cough, shameless plug*

  • And I was hosting a panel on one of those days

  • I brought a few of my friends on stage, LilyPichu being one of them..

  • We held the Q&A session and this kid comes up and says to Lily "Your brother is better than you at League" (of Legends)

  • And then walks away!

  • On another occasion, I was walking around with my girlfriend at a convention, she was cosplaying a character.

  • All of a sudden a random ballsack of a dickhead comes up to her and says

  • "*Insert another character from the same show* is better" and then continues walking.

  • Why, why, why did those two think that was a good use of his and our time?

  • Was it nice? No. Was it true? Can't confirm, and even if it was, was it necessary?

  • Hell nah!

  • Think this new generation of adolescents think there's actual merit in being what they call "Savage" as they bask in their two and a half seconds of glory.

  • It's not savage guys. You're gonna die alone.

  • Obviously it's unrealistic to have our words go through all of the gates every time we speak.

  • But over time you kind of get the hang of it. You find out which things are appropriate per scenario.

  • *Trying to figure out which is the correct pronunciation of the word Scenario*

  • Whatever... *Gives up*

  • I for one usually add in another gate. 4. Is it funny?

  • Because that's the nature of my work and my outlook in life.

  • Some things are unnecessary but I find them humorous.

  • Sometimes it's funny because it's unnecessary. But you got to be tasteful about it .

  • Someone nearby might make a funny noise, and I might laugh at it.

  • It was neither true, kind nor necessary, but I found it funny.

  • That kid who asked the question, not funny. It wasn't even a question.

  • I mean he got a uniformed reaction from the audience but we all could have lived without having that be a part of our day.

  • We laughed it off. 'Though not a "That was funny" laugh..

  • But more of a "Yo, can security escort that kid out of here so the person beside them can have more legroom?" kind of laugh.

  • He was just a kid. Discretion and empathy is something you develop as you age.

  • As kids we just went about and said whatever the hell we wanted and not gave a shit about what other thought because "Hey, freedom of speech" right?

  • If you get offended or triggered well, you're too sensitive, and you just have to deal with it, right?

  • if I can be an asshole, then I will proceed to be.

  • Because when you lack empathy, it's just so easy to be one.

  • I know some of you might start to fear speaking at all anymore.

  • I mean, what's the point, right? When worrying if every single thing you say might deter people and render you unlikable.

  • But that's not the point of this.

  • Some people believe that action speak louder than words.

  • But a lot of the time words are responsible for influencing actions from others.

  • Whether or not those actions are benevolent can be up to you.

  • Think about what you're gonna say.

  • Speak responsibly.

  • Viewers..

  • Discretion is advised.
