People Making You Feel Reluctant About Using Social Media?
Them: “I’ve actually gotten very reluctant and a little paranoid about how to comport myself on Instagram because I seem to have offended someone by the way that I was sending things on private message without realizing it. I was just trying to be friendly and keep in touch but they got really mad. So I’m being really cautious with what buttons I press on Instagram.”
Me: “It really is okay to offend people and make them angry while you’re learning a new process or a new technology or a new-to-you app. Let them be angry, then ask them what you should be doing differently from a technical point of view. Ask them for help, and if they refuse to help then you know where they stand. But keep making mistakes. Keep pissing people off. Keep moving forward.”
