The Internet can be a good thing, and it can also be a bad thing. It can be good thing when people are spreading their joy. When they are honoring one another, or lifting each other up. It’s a great way to make you feel special, when it’s your birthday! It’s a great place to raise money for those in need, and it’s a great place to connect with others. It’s a great way to keep in touch with friends that are far away, and it’s a great place to build a business.
It’s a bad thing when people start throwing their negative opinions around. It’s a bad thing, when we use the Internet to make fun of people who are living real life tragedies. It’s bad when you judge them so harshly. Yes I’m talking about the horrific situations that have occurred lately. The gorilla, the alligator, the shootings in Orlando, and a million other things.
You see I’m real sick of reading your posts where all you do is bash people and make fun of them. When did you become so desensitized? When did you become the judge? When did you learn to become so jaded? I am guessing that it makes you feel better to talk bad about others. If you didn’t have some sort of pay off you wouldn’t do it in the first place.
The truth of the matter is, that you will NEVER understand a situation completely, until you are living it. You don’t know what it’s like to lose a parent, unless you’ve already lost one. You don’t know what it’s like to have cancer, until you actually have it. You don’t know what it’s like to be poor, unless you have ever been poor. You don’t know what it’s like to have a job, if you’ve never worked.
You get back in life what you put out there. I think it’s normal for us as humans to have an opinion on things. I also think it’s normal to want to talk about them. But what I don’t think is normal, is that there is so much anger and animosity towards the victims and their families. I don’t think it’s normal to always be bashing people.
The next time you have a thought, and it’s judgmental and harsh, I challenge you to sit on it for a minute. I ask you to pause, and ask yourself why do you feel this way? If your in your emotional brain, then you really need to stop! Do you know why? Because feelings are temporary, they are not permanent. They will change in an hour and you might not feel the same way.
So in order to stay faithful to myself, I choose to be kind. I choose to be empathetic (actually, I didn’t choose to be an empath that was a gift from God). I choose to spread love. I choose to try to consciously make one persons day a little better. I choose to understand my thoughts before I share them.
