#22: Avoid Direct Confrontation

Maybe it’s this silent, desktop world we inhabit. Maybe it’s the new culture of positivity and anti-depression. But having a big confrontation, complete with shouting, threats, revelations, and tears, is a decidedly old, out-of-it thing to do.

If young people want to fire you or stop seeing you, they’ll just stop returning your messages. Or defriend you on Facebook. If they’re angry about something you’ve done to them, they’ll blog about it. Or send topless pictures of you on their cellphones to all their friends. I’m not kidding.
