Every day, thanks to Social Media sites, I get to see a lot of people making a lot of assumptions. It is disturbing to read/hear the way people think of others. So much judgement and assumption happening. It astounds me at times how it is that people can’t see what they do. Why not take a step back and look in the mirror. Or better yet, browse through your Facebook page or Twitter Feed for past posts and see who you really are.
Do you like what you see? I hope so. It is so important for us to like…no, love, who we are!
Ya know I do not say this because I think we are hurting so many people with our words (although we definitely could be), it is more about US. We are worthy of being a better person, we are worthy of love and I think by posting so much judgement and hate on public social sites we deprive our self of the love we are so deserving of.
Rather than posting judgmental comments, which in a lot of cases is to assume the heart and true feelings of others without even asking if this is really the way they feel, maybe take time to get to know someone. This is one area where Social Media sites have failed! We have so many “friends” but do we really know them? Are they truly friends? Maybe take a few minutes to get to know someone before you decide what they are really thinking! I see too many people misunderstand the written word, another thing we can thank progress for! Too many people carry on “text” relationships and there is so much misunderstanding! I think we need to have a little more face time going on!
So love yourself enough to want to live with integrity! Love yourself enough to be able to look back on your life and feel good about who you are!
Look in the mirror folks. Love what you see.
