If I read people’s posts regularly and comment, will I be taken for granted?
It is definitely a thought I have from time to time. But there are multiple ways to combat this thought.
People get busy. Just because I do not see the same person that tends to comment on my posts, something may have happened on their end. This certainly happens to me. I get a few days behind on someone’s posts to, yes, sometimes, a month or so.
People lose interest. Maybe my posts just are not their thing anymore. That’s okay.
I am being taken for granted. Oddly enough, I have noticed when I’ve stopped commenting on some blogs for some of the reasons I just listed…that’s when people start commenting again on my blogs. It happens, and it shows a selfish motive.
But it is a reminder to me, am I being selfish with how I comment? Is gain in the back of my mind, at any time?
Humility, kindness, and encouragement go so deeper than self-gain. I want this to be my goal. So when I comment on someone’s post, I do not want it to be cloaked with “hidden gain” I want to support someone and be engaging in discussion.
That’s my thought for today.
