Escalation is much easier than de-escalation

It’s so easy to make a big deal about stuff.

So easy to cause a fuss. To get someone in trouble.

To escalate matters.

What’s not easy is to rewind the process.

Once an issue is on the radar, it’s hard to get off.

Once someone is in trouble, it’s hard to make it right.

De-escalation is hard.

So think twice before you start shouting from the rooftops.

What has been shouted cannot be un-shouted.
