It seems like everywhere you look: on the news, online, even in your own neighborhood – everyone is talking about issues with bullies. Gone are the days when Little Johnnie and Ornery Mike meet behind the school to duke out their issues. Now we’re dealing with kids that shoot each other. It’s bone chilling. However, kids are obviously not the only one’s dealing with bullies. I’ve actually witnessed some seriously nasty tweets between mothers. I was embarrassed for them just reading it!
The bottom line is this: Once you hit ‘Send’ it’s gone…there’s no getting those words back. Period. If emails can come across wrong because you don’t HEAR the person, can you imagine what can come across in a few, quickly typed out, sentences?
Your words are so choice, so tasty;
I prefer them to the best home cooking.
-Psalms 119:103 (The Message – cracks me up!)
“You can catch more flies with honey, than with vinegar.”
Most people crave positive words of encouragement. So be the one to start it.
Just as there are trolls in the blogging world, there are nimrods in the social media realm as a whole. There is no help for those people. The good thing about most social media sites, you can do more than just ignore them. You can actually block or delete them from your list. (Mwahahaha!!!)
