Freedom to Hurt

For the past few days, I have had something on my mind and I need to just get it out so here I am pouring out my heart about it.

I love social media but I have noticed that lately people post terribly demeaning things about people not realizing that it is hurting them…or maybe they do realize but don’t really care.
What is it about the news sites that attract people that want to gossip, bash and insult each other? I understand that we are all allowed an opinion, but when you start insinuating things about people, especially dead people, without thinking about how it is affecting them or their family members,  you have just gone too far.

Another thing I have gotten very upset about lately is people posting ugly comments or pictures of strangers they see in public.  It is just plain mean! I don’t understand why someone feels the need to insult someone that they don’t even know.  It got me so worked up the other day that I called my husband almost in tears because of something someone posted.

Maybe I have become more compassionate…I don’t know.  I just try to think about how I would feel if someone was posting these things about me or someone I love.  Let’s all try to think before we post…and try to be more Christ like.

Thanks for listening to my heart and please share with your friends.

    I feel the same way. I have actually “un-friended” some people because they have this nasty habit. I have no desire to associate myself with anyone who can be so outright mean. We need to let our “friends” know that this behavior is unacceptable, even if they are doing it from behind the computer screen rather than to someone’s face.
