Re: Info: Speaking of monies for new iris clubs

Betty is very wise. Sadly it is people that belong to
societies. People can provide a great deal of love and
happiness to each other and they can also cause hurt.
I am reminded that many people decline from
participating in plant societies because they don't
wish to deal with people. Sadly this means they never
experience the joys either. Calling attention to
behavior you don't like usually only inflames the
opposition and makes the behavior worse. It is not
easy but one must try to reward the behavior that you
wish to promote at any opportunity, so that good acts
will build to larger good acts. We need to spend less
time criticizing and more time complimenting if we
wish to see behavior improve.
