Did you catch this story today on Good Morning America…about cyber mom bullies?
OK, so I suppose part of blogging, tweeting and facebook is to share your opinions and thoughts on what you see going on in the world around you, but ugly personal attacks against people is just plain wrong.
Just because you cannot see the pain in their eyes, does not mean that your words did not put it there.
We all need to be mindful to use social media to inform and uplift, not criticize and tear down. May I suggest that’s what “delete” and “unfriend” are for – when you see “ugly” remove it from your field of vision. And I am not talking about appearances…but I’m guessing you realize that.
My mom gave me the best advice on this subject when I was very young, “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.”
A good motto for us all to live by as we let our fingers slide over the keyboard!
