Do as I Say

I admit it.  I’m a hypocrite.

Last week I wrote about the importance of NOT constantly arguing online and logging off when you need to.  If you missed it (I was having publishing issues) you can read it here:

Excellent advise, right?  Too bad I didn’t follow it.  In spite of my best intentions I did indeed insert myself into a few more political arguments in the early part of last week.  I’m not proud of this.  On Wednesday I had a therapy session and we discussed this at length and agreed that I needed to take my own advise for the sake of my own mental health.  So, I walked out of that session determined to not get into any more political arguments online.  And, I’m proud to say, that I haven’t.  However……

Over the weekend I found myself getting into “discussions” on vaccines, cat declawing and the New England Patriots.  And they got me almost as riled up as the political ones.

SO, clearly I still have a long ways to go.  BUT, I still believe that if everyone does as I say, and if we forgive each other when we slip up, social media can be a more friendly place again.  I haven’t given up, and I sure hope you haven’t either.
