We are living in a time that continues to have heightened tensions, personal attacks, and an openness to express hatred. Many of these acts are targeted towards our families, friends, co-workers and us.
Social media is a common vehicle where a lot of negatively and attacks can occur that impact all of us. We must continue to be mindful of how our own actions and words, intentional or not, are impacting others. Empathy is something very important to keep in mind.
Think about what you do and say and how it will impact friends and family. We all make mistakes that are often unintentional. The key is to try to be more aware and improve. Let’s build instead of demolishing, let’s praise instead of criticizing, and lets value differences instead of making comparisons. Encourage and empower each person you encounter every day.
