Publicly Judging

No one is perfect but most of us try to be as good a person as we can with the odd mistake thrown in, this mistake is something we usually learn from and then we move onwards but we have to be careful what we say about other people and moreso when it is public and online.

Most situations are best sorted out between the people involved rather than posting on a social media site for the world to read, some personal goings on are not for everyone to know about and it saddens me when people rant online knowing the other person involved cannot even have their say.

This rant opens the door for everyone who has read the post to then judge one side of the story because let's face it all they are reading is one side of the story.  I always feel that it is best to communicate with the person involved, sit down and chat or speak on the phone and sort it out, that might involve agreeing to walk away from each other or even to be polite to each other if both parties do not wish to be friends any more but think about the words you are writing for all to see, what does it say about you that you are willing to slate someone publicly and how would you feel if it was your name being ripped to pieces.

Be a good person that has kindness and love within your heart enough to keep personal situations private and just between the people involved.

Have a wonderful day my friends and may you be blessed with love, laughter and the kindness of special friends.

A point well made. I too agree that if there are any misunderstandings, they must be sorted out with the person/ people involved rather than letting the whole world know about it.

Communication is always key, but both sides have to be willing to talk. When one side is not mature enough to handle it like an adult, all attempts at reconciliation will break down.

Rachel Curtis said...

Very true Scott, people need to think before they rant publicly x

That's one thing I have never understood about social media and Facebook in particular. If you have some sort of drama going on in your life, why would you put it out there for the world to see? Often, it makes the problem worse and rarely to never fixes it.

Hear Hear. Communication is the key not Social Media. I laughed the other month while dealing with a Solicitor thing that im my terms of Working with her she now stated that you must not talk about the situation on Social Media!!! What a sad way the world is going if folk are always airing their dirty washing enough for the Solicitors to merit having that!!! Thanks for sharing, I popped by Via The Ultimate Blog Challenge FB Page. Hazelxx
