I am on social media as all of you are or you wouldn’t be reading this. The thoughts on my heart today are of opinions and how we interact with each other regarding those opinions. Everyone has an opinion and everybody’s opinion matters. The difference today is with the internet and social media everyone is able to easily share their opinion. And while everyone is able to share their opinion, everyone else has to make a decision to share their own opinion or not to share while valuing the other person or slamming the other person as dumb, stupid, or insignificant.
I have no respect for those who have the thought that they are smarter than everyone else and that if you share an opinion different from theirs, it makes you a fool. I’m just going to share a few points and not linger.
#1. Everybody’s opinion matters.
#2. You have a right to disagree with another opinion but no right to belittle that person.
#3. If you can’t allow someone else to share their opinion without attacking them, you’re the one with a problem.
#4. There is an unfriend button as well as a button to block people from being able to post to your social media pages, use them when necessary.
#5. Bullying should never be tolerated.
#6. Everybody likes a good debate but no one likes a know it all.
Just my opinion…
