What it is with people anymore? Anyone reading along in the comments section will have noticed a (ahem) heated exchange or words. This got me to thinking yesterday. What it is with people in general these days where we are so quick to judge and cut each other down. I have had a few instances recently (most of which I was a mere observer and not directly involved) where I have witnessed people so needlessly taking shots at others for no apparent reason.
We're all human. We all err and screw up and act like idiots. But why is it necessary for others to so readily point it out to both you and the rest of the world. Its' part of the reason I avoid facebook. To me it drives people to point out the bad and the ugly rather than celebrate the wonderful and joyous.
I know in my own life there is plenty of things to bring me down. I make plenty of mistakes and do enough dumb stuff. I don't need anyone to point it out. My wounds need no salt.
It's the holidays. It's time to be merry and bright and celebrate. So, I am going to try to remember that. When someone I know errs or makes a mistake I will bee keeping all of our humanity in mind.
** My disclaimer: By no means am I apologetic for the situation that lead to the afore mentioned heated exchange. I did nothing wrong and neither did my kids.
