Judge not, lest be judged....several years on the internet seems to have soured some people. I don't know quite why, but some folks get a reaction to hurt others by mentally abusing them. Some take it to the level of cyber bullying. This goes from children, to adults, even to our senior citizens. I don't understand this kind of mentality. Nothing has personally happened to me lately to want to write this post, it's just observation from reading forums. I'm on many dog & RV forums. It seems some folks just have to kick people before they are down & once knocked down, the kicking continues. I am on one wonderful list of women that have come out to tell their stories. The list is amazing because I just never see anyone sitting in judgement of them. Yet, I've seen some of these women reflect their problems on the other lists, only to get smacked with a baseball bat (so to speak). Why is human nature like this? Why is there a need to hurt others or just simply shrug someone off because one can't be bothered to offer a kind word? You know what? Someone's father had passed away recently, in her blog, she asked for in lieu of flowers, please do a kind deed in her father's name instead. I'd like to look at this as my kind deed in her father's name. I'd like to see the world view other people's problems with an open heart & a kind word, rather than a shrug & an it's your problem attitude. Even if no one can reach out & help another, a kind word can still go a long way. Where is our compassion to mankind here?
So today's blog isn't about myself, my RV lifestyle, nor my recent surgery. I want it to be about mankind & to remind others to be kind. To offer a helping hand or a kind word when it's needed. To be a better person for it. You will be rewarded within yourownself if you do so. (although the old saying of "no good deed goes unpunished" seems to have just screamed at me ;-} )
Hugs to you Sheryl, I'm thinking of you.
