I have been posting stuff online for years. I have also been reading stuff online for the same amount of time. As a blogger, I strive to keep my posts about the reality of life and about the world I live in. Sometimes the reality of that world can be tough and sometimes toxic. We cannot deny we live in a place where there is lots of turmoil and that can color how we see things and express ourselves. Being positive in a negative place is very difficult but we have to figure out how to make that happen.

How do we return some light and levity to our conversations? I am trying to figure that out without sounding like a goody-two-shoes (which I am more times than not). All I can say is think twice, post once and make what you say matter. Be careful, the person you might hurt in a post might be yourself.
