Why Should We Care or Why We Should Care?
The simple placement of a word or punctuation mark can completely change the meaning of a sentence, which can change the purpose of a paragraph, an essay, a book, or even the essence of how we live and what we believe.
I am working towards adding more positivity to my life through my language, both verbal and written, as well as my thinking. I am trying to be more mindful, first, how I think about a topic, a conversation, what I hear, and what I read, and then being more mindful about how I respond to my thoughts and all the information that I am ingesting. Note that I said respond, not react. Even by saying that I am responding versus reacting is a positive outlook, and can provide a more positive outcome. Reactions are beneficial in certain situations, especially in an emergency. However, responding means to ingest and process the information, and then formulate a response more mindfully.
When thinking about this post, I wrote the headline, “Why Should We Care About Giving Back to the World?” But, “why should” is such a negative statement and I do not want to offer that negativity. That is not what VegfulLife is about! Retitling it to, “Why We Should Care About Giving Back to the World,” changes the language to a positive note.
“Why Should” gives off the vibe that one has already given up or question why they or their actions matter. Whereas “Why We (or I) Should” gives the sense that there will be positive outcomes, which is what VegfulLife is entirely about!
