When did it become acceptable to be mean and not kind? In my world it is NOT acceptable but I have seen it time and time again and it is eating at me.
Comments about a performer ‘s stomach.
Comments about an outfit that someone wears to an event.
Comments about someone’s political views or associations are running rampant now.
Comments about someone’s core beliefs or religion.
They are all floating around out there in our world right now and it sickens me.
I realize that emotions are running especially high in our country right now. I get it. But does it mean that we are allowed to be mean and hateful?
Now is the time when we are all feeling restricted and confined by the Covid-19 Pandemic to be KIND. To actually take a look at those around us and just be nice. It is not difficult at all. You just never know what someone else is going through.
As I found out this morning of yet another relative of someone I know that has died from Covid -19 I think that it is way past time to stop thinking about myself and how my little world has been affected by this. I need to reach out to some of those who actually have suffered a loss during this time.
I find myself really checking what I am saying, what I am writing and what I am projecting because I do not want to be one of “those” people. Have I been guilty of some of these behaviors ? Absolutely yes. But now is the time to change.
I often “preach” about being the change, being the ripple of kindness that promotes goodness and light and now is the time to amp up that campaign and do just that.
So today and every day I will choose to take the high road.
I choose to reach out in kindness in some small way.
The ripple begins with me.
