WHY DO SOME ENVIRONMENTALISTS AND ANIMAL-RIGHTS ADVOCATES HAVE THE WORST PEOPLE SKILLS EVER?

DEAR DALI MAMA:

Why do some environmentalists and animal-rights advocates have the worst people skills ever?

–Just Wondering (United States)

DEAR JUST WONDERING:

Well, I know many environmentalists and animal-rights folk who are just delightful but let me say this…sometimes it’s a lot easier to allow yourself to care about the earth or for animals because they tend not be easier to get along with than people.

If you want, just validate that we’re all one and the same and thank these light warriors as spirit for doing the good work they’re doing even if they can be a little rough around the edges. The ability to speak strongly and forcefully and to get their opinions heard might even require some in-your-face people skills once in a while. Validate that their hearts are probably in the right place and that they’re putting their energy to great causes.
