“ Dialogue” to mean converse or conversation. You’re not in a play FFS. Same with narrative, you’re not a novelist in your daily life.

Also, everyone thinks they’re a “boss,” “visionary,” “influencer” or “leader.” Let’s reserve those words for the rare few people who do this and do it well. People on the internet with a side gig or insta hustle or a lot followers or maybe a podcast are not those things, most of the time.
