One thing I have noticed on social media is the mean things that are written. When you talk to people face to face, you usually use filters. Either you don't want to hurt feelings, start an argument, or get punched in the face. With social media, filters seem to be removed. You can say anything. I sometimes wonder if the same people really talk like that to other people.
I had to quit reading the comments under local news articles. Whenever something horrible happens, the bullies come out. I am amazed by the hateful things that people say.
Politics has brought the worse out of people. I was always taught to keep religion and politics out of your conversations, and I do try to live by that.
I always wonder, are we just a world of bullies and hate? Have we always been this way and just knew when to keep our mouths shut?
If we all start being kind, use our personal filters on social media, quit talking politics and religion, and quit being bullies, our world will become easier to live happy in.
Kind things to do this week:
Don't say anything mean on facebook.

This week, we have been tackling clutter in our bedrooms. So, today we are going to clean off the nightstands! Get the tissues, cups and stuff that has piled up, toss and put away. Then grab a feather duster or dust rag and dust the surface. Place a pretty candle or picture there. Something that is new to that spot that you love to see.
Waking up and not seeing a pile of things on the nightstand and a pile of clothes will make your morning a little brighter!
