Stop the Political Madness

Is anyone besides me sick to death of the current political feeding frenzy on social media? Yeah, our country has problems, but here's a newsflash for you: we always have and we always will. Getting frothed up online damages your reputation.

Case in point: I moseyed over to Facebook the other day to check out a particular actor who's picture was an inspiration for one of my heroes. Whewie! The venom this fella was spewing about the current administration kept me from 'liking' his page. Not that I'm a huge Trump supporter, but the man's negativity was a huge turn off.

There was also a blogger who I used to avidly follow until his posts morphed from awesome writing advice to rant-filled nastiness about those in charge.

Now don't get me wrong . . . I'm not saying you shouldn't voice your opinion. The first amendment is still my all-time fave. I'm simply saying make the extra effort to be kind in how you express yourself.

It's an ugly world out there. Bring a little beauty to your little piece of turf by smiling at someone today.

I wholeheartedly agree with you Michelle on every point. After the the new president took office, there was SO much hate on FB, even from "friends". I took a hiatus from social media, it just made me sick! It was terrible.

You don't have to be ugly to express your opinions :-)
