I can’t help wonder why so many people are out of control. I spent a week at the beach and the acting out I witnessed actually took me by surprise. It seems there is a population of ticking time bombs always on the verge of exploding all over anyone that slightly inconveniences them. It’s scary how instantaneously people react these days with little or no regard for the turmoil they leave in the path behind them. It’s not only disheartening but embarrassing to watch. Slowly and surely, many of us are losing self control. Whether it’s eating, lashing out or whatever else, we no longer limit what we should. We don’t think before we speak, we don’t consider the tone of the voice we are directing at a fellow human being and we have no remorse over the hurtful and critical things that come out of our mouths.
I say be better! Be bigger than the smallness attacking us from every angle. Be an example in a world full of lost souls. Be a soft voice among the loud, angry tone. Be sympathetic in a world filled with blame. Be complimentary among the criticism and most importantly, be kind in a world that has become self absorbed. It only takes one person at a time to make a slow and steady difference. I hope you will join me.
