Bad comments

I have honestly considered many times why people take the time to bring others down.

Especially people that directly try to bring others down.
I have heard of people trying to correct people's parenting skills by blatantly bringing them down.
Disregarding all of the things that they have down right and all of the effort they are trying to make.

I have heard of people getting mad because they made a mistake and when someone offered the best they could, the person revelled in their anger and wrote horrible things about them.

Why do we try and find faults with each other.
Sure there have been plenty of times where someone has frustrated me and treated me badly.
I have seriously felt like writing to them and giving them a piece of my mind.
But what would that achieve?

I am far from perfect, but I wish that despite our frustration and anger, we could see the good in people.
I like it when I realise that I have been getting mad at someone and then thought, well maybe they didn't mean to do that, or if they did then that is their problem.
It helps me to see where I need to improve and move forward. 

I need to change; we all need to change.
I don't want to be a bitter person. Sometimes we have to let things or people go if it's not so good for us anymore.
Sometimes we need to learn to accept certain things we can't or shouldn't change and go from there.

Life is meant to be lived and enjoyed. 
So, I hope that you, like me, try to find the good in people more and appreciate the good qualities people have and the unknown struggles they may be facing.

"Be the change you wish to see in the world."
- Mahatma Ghandi

Lovely sentiments Lisa, I really like this. I've always thought the same thing and honestly believe that there are people out there who just take the easy way out and don't really think about what they do or say. Nice Post..

Amen, sister. Sometimes it's incredibly hard to remember in the moment, but you never know what someone's going through until you've walked a mile in their shoes!

This is all so true! So often people are going through personal struggles that cause them to be the way they are... not that that's an excuse, but it sure is a reason. Well said! Great post!

Too true!!! I'm so sorry you have had mean comments! I have had problems with this a few times and I wonder why people feel the need to be so rude! Why do they feel the need to even read a blog if they are just going to be negative about it? And guess what? I love your blog and I know lots of people who love your blog and I think that's all that matters :)

So true. It is something I know I need to work on. It is so easy to ge caught up in things and over react. I always remember 2 things my dad says (Your dad probably did too, lol).

"Is it kind, is it true, is it necessary?" Meaning if it wasn't 2 of the 3 don't say it. And true and necessary meant necessary for mum and dad to know. Otherwise, don't say it.

The other thing was "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all!" Again, the only exception was if a sibling was in danger/putting themselves in a bad situation etc.

Thanks for sharing.
