If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.
A phrase that has followed me throughout my life and a lifestyle I try to live. It should be a lesson in schools that kindness is the only option and if you do have a desire to be cruel, you are to be silent until the moment passes.
I know we’re not all perfect and we’re all bound to make a mistake every now and then; after all that is life. We learn from our mistakes and we grow into who we wish to be; or that’s what we’re supposed to do.
It’s easier and safer to be cruel now, the internet is a window into peoples lives and we can choose to comment on their lives in whatever way we wish to. Hiding behind a screen and saying nasty things is extremely easy, I’m sure we have all done it at least once during our internet lives.
