Simply Put...Be Nice

There is so much drama, everywhere I turn.  People being unfriended on social media or lambasted for innocent posts or even closing their accounts due to persistent negativity and nastiness. The other night at work, I listened to an entire crew of nurses talking trash about other co-workers over the pettiest crap I've ever heard.  Why?  Why is this how people choose to conduct themselves day-to-day?  Why can't people be happy?  Be happy for others?  Be grateful for the time they have with others and for the wonderful people in their lives?  Accept that we are all different, yet still special in individual ways?  All the time spent condemning and judging others can be way better spent loving and appreciating one another for what they bring to the table of life.  Have fun!  Lighten the @#$% up, relax, and breathe.  I know I'm not innocent and have been guilty of these behaviors in the past, but I have learned and I try damn hard to be the kind of friend that people are proud to have.  I'm nowhere close to perfect and I've done things that others don't understand (or even try to), but so has everyone else.  Really.  No one deserves it, especially if it's someone you've called a parent, a friend, a sibling, a co-worker, a neighbor, or even a stranger.  Simply put, be's really not that difficult!!  Think how much less depression would be in the world if people were nicer, forgiving, understanding, gave benefit of the doubt, trusted...I could go on and on...just do it!  You'll feel better for it!downloadIf you didn't see it with your own eyes, or hear it with your own ears, don't invent it with your small mind and share it with your big mouth!
