Think Before You Type

I think I've reached my max limit on people's negativity.

It seems like lately people can't post a video or picture without someone taking the time to comment something negative. 

It's not just negativity, it's actual bullying. Grown men and women actually name calling. 

I always try to see the positive in people and in life, but it seems that the amount of negativity and hate hasn't just gotten worse- it's gotten rapidly worse. The world should be more good (and you should actually have to seek out the negative), where nowadays it seems like you have to look to find the positive. What has amazed me lately is someone name calling, then you click on their profile, and they have a profile pic of them with their young child. What kind of example is that to children (who deal with bullying the most)? How would they like it if their child was called the same names? 

I mean, making fun of what people wear, and how they wear it, their bodies, faces or whatever... I always pray "Forgive them Lord they know not what they do" just like Jesus did. I can't even begin to fathom having that much hate in you; that you take the time to (not only) type up the cruelty- but then hit send. I mean, really? Recently, Texas was hit with 3 tornadoes. 5 people died and 45 people were severely injured. Think about that. 5 people woke up that day and died. Their family is forever affected. That's real tragedy. Some people are over there with nothing better to do than to spew garbage; about maybe something as insignificant as they don't like a person's hair. Did you ever think that maybe that person doesn't have the money to get their hair done? Be grateful you do. Maybe that store clerk is miserable because they just found out their spouse left them. Maybe that person gained weight because they received bad news and ate out of depression...

Thats why being judgmental is so just ... wrong. You never know what that person has been through (or is going through). Thank God you're not. Count your blessings: You have eyes to see your phone, hands so that you can type those negative messages. Sorry. This may sound like a rant, but to be honest this isn't about me. I thank God that I really don't get a lot of crap at all, but just seeing what some people put in other's posts triggered this. 

Anyway, I'm just encouraging everyone to take some time and give friendly reminders to be nice. Be kind. Be a blessing. Pray for others. I use my twitter for those short thoughts and reminders - maybe it's something we can do together. I'm still gonna choose to stay positive and pray for those negative people. To be honest, they might have no one else praying for them. Or maybe the world has to get that bad because Jesus is coming back soon. Either way, just spread the freakin love. Period.
