With Age Comes Wisdom (Hopefully)

“When you argue with fools bystanders might become confused with who’s whom!”~Twain

I was recently removed from an on-line forum I was a Member of. Yep, I got kicked out! My posts would get Likes, people would ask legitimate questions that I’d answer, but a vocal minority of members would repeatedly comment with insults and even use profanity to express their extreme opposition to what I posted. Guess how I “replied” to all of those?…

SILENCE

I wouldn’t have always handled silly experiences like this so well. In return for turning the other cheek though I was removed from the forum. Of course everyone knows life isn’t fair and that “You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please some of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time”~Lincoln

And the world somehow keeps spinning!

If Twain ain’t your thing Proverbs 13:20 sheds some light on situations like this “Walk with wise and become wise, for a companion of fools becomes one.”

OUCH!

I have a very simple strategy for posting on social media and certainly replying to posts of others…If I don’t have something nice to say or uplifting to post I simply don’t say or post it!

I’m not perfect but I am passionate about being “part of the solution instead of the problem” in today’s crazy social media realm.

If you agree with me give this post a thumbs up. Better yet join me with taking the high road, always, on-line. If not that’s cool but know throwing gas on the fire ALWAYS causes the same affect…everyone just gets burned!
