Lately, I have witnessed a lot of criticism and derision on various social media websites. These sites are seen worldwide so almost anyone with a computer, virtually anywhere, can read your words. People are saying things on the world-wide-web that they would never say out loud or in person. I call this electronic hit and run!
Negative words unavoidably create more negative energy no matter what the reason or source. Before you enter a tweet or status update read it over. Is it something you would like to read about yourself? Before you reply to a tweet or a post, read what you have written and decide how you would feel if the message was directed at you. Oh, and you might think that you have gotten away with something because no one could see you, but in fact you have just been found out by the entire world!
Why not make a point of only send out positive, uplifting comments. Wouldn’t you rather be caught being kind, optimistic, or funny rather than rude, cruel or negative? Stop the electronic hit and run and instead, use your access to the world-wide-web to improve the world in some small way.
