The post below copied from my daughter, Sarah, is very well stated. I am going to make this my goal as well and practice it daily. I like her hashtag phrase too, as there is always room for improvement! Go Sarah!!
A question for you: Do you save your marriage or do you save your soul?
Wow… is it just me or does it seem like there is so much negativity these days? People are ready to attack, lash out, and strike at any given moment. Little do they know that they are not only hurting themselves, but they are also creating more negative energy within their circle. These people will then be the first ones to complain about how things are not working right in their lives. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and beliefs, but be civil and have some class and respect when voicing them. Besides, if you listen close enough to what is being said without being so critical and close-minded, you might truly learn something. My circle of friends is getting smaller. I refuse to support negative behavior.
