Comments can inspire, enlighten, inform. They can also demoralize, hurt and wound. Sometimes a comment can reveal more about your readers than the post reveals about you. We have all made comments that in our head sound innocent but when it’s on a screen it looks like something else. We can use our comments to lift someone up or to tear them down when they don’t need to
The old saying if you can’t say something nice don’t say anything at all applies but is often not followed. What you say has weight and consequences. Everyone has said dumb things they regret and wish they could take back but it is also hard to put toothpaste back in a tube. Be sure to leave comments but choose words wisely. It’s always something about those comments.
