Common Courtesy Goes A Long Way
By Cheval John
Just because we are in the age of social media does not mean that it gives a person the right to act a fool.
Over the last few weeks, people have posted mean things about others especially celebrities.
They feel that they will not be caught because they post these mean tweets as anonymous.
The only question is why would they post the mean tweets if they will not say those mean things in person?
The possible answer is that they have felt so insecure their entire lives and believed that putting other people down makes them feel better about themselves.
They do not realize that when they put down other people on social media, it will wind up hurting them in the long run because the person is developing a bad reputation to others.
If they only lift people up by sending a complimentary thank you note,tweet, etc. to the person for a great article they wrote, they will make their day and also will feel better about themselves.
I can guarantee that you will build a strong reputation for not only being a generous person, but will create a strong support because you took the time to be courteous.
