    Hey dental hygienists, it's time to stop blaming the victim



    3. Make engagement personal. We live in a digital world, as you are experiencing reading this article. In the digital realm, engagement needs to become personal. This means sending out interactive newsletters, emails and social media posts regarding your organization’s progress so you can get real-time feedback from both members and, more importantly, nonmembers. Do this not once a year but routinely.

    The only person you can change

    One of life’s hardest lessons to learn is that you can only change yourself. Some people spend inordinate amounts of time and energy upset, angry or frustrated by other people’s thoughts and behaviors and blame the victims. Save yourself some frustration and try to learn to stop trying to change others. Focus instead on looking at yourself and your contribution to the outcome, and you may find yourself living a happier and more peaceful life.
