Yesterday I was reminded of this old saying “You catch more bees with honey than with vinegar” and as I pointed out yesterday, and will again today, I do not know why I would want to catch bees but I know what the saying means and it surely applies to what I see going on with people more and more, especially with the internet.
The internet allows us all to hide behind a shroud of secrecy and be people we would never have the courage to be to a persons face. But hidden behind the anonymity of computers and keyboards we have oh so much courage, but not so much smarts!
I see people, who may actually have a valid point, in a public disagreement lose all credibility by being nasty, mean-spirited, and a loudmouth! Someone that they may not be ( I can only hope) if it were not for the computer screen in front of them! People need to take a step back and realize they will win people over a lot more often, and win friends too, if they can have disagreements without all the drama and mean-spirited behavior! There is too much drama floating around out there these days!
We will all be a lot happier if we just think “LOVE”, “PEACE”, AND “QUIET”<——– see how I did that? “Peace and Quiet”…cause the arguments are loud….and dramatic, makes my head hurt! 🙂
