Motivational Monday #42 - speak a good word

Hello my lovelies!

The internet is an amazing place. It opens loads of opportunities and allows us to speak to people we would not normally get to speak to. However, with this freedom comes some consequences. The thing that I hate the most about the internet is that anyone can say anything behind a screen and they do not realise the power it can have. Saying something horrible to someone over the internet can ruin their day, or even worse, cause serious depression. Don't get me wrong, I am all for debates online, but there is a difference between sharing your opinion in a diplomatic way and just being outright horrible. So this brings me onto this weeks quote, 'Speak a good word or remain silent'. I suppose this follows on from the saying, if you have nothing nice to say then don't say it. I am a big advocate for this and I feel like more people need to take this on board! So this week, try and be a bit more selective with what you say. Is it constructive or just mean? If it is just mean then keep it to yourself and the people around you may be happier!
