The Internet Is A Tempting Arena to "Spill It."
This is the part where it is so tempting to "spill it" on the internet. Of course there's a backstory to this video request. One I won't be sharing here simply because this whole thing is ridiculous and really does NOT INVOLVE ME. But because I've received this request - along with a litany of other pointless syllables - it is really tempting to just tell the whole world how I feel about it. And the internet provides the perfect venue. But that would not be the wise thing to do. Oh, there will be follow-up, but offline and in my usual way.
What is a wise response when emotions run high? What about when someone just simply offends you because of their views? Do you ignore it? Do you put a nasty comment on their status? Do you message a litany of useless syllables hoping to gain a response in your favor?
Why am I writing all this anyway? Well, first to use the platform to make it clear that what I post is MINE and not meant to cause harm but enrichment to others' lives. If it has offended - sorry, but I'm not retracting. Second, to gently remind us all to take a pause before reacting online. Breathe, think it through, then respond if necessary. You may find that it's not necessary to jump into someone else's "drama party."
