I often think about the way in which our online lives have molded and changed the way in which we speak to one another -- often times with a lack of regard for the thoughts and opinions of others that it begs the question about why we continue to stay in this thoughtless  bubble. I was raised to speak kindly, eloquently, and with poise to others--to respond with kindness in the face of someone who is anything but kind. I encountered a situation on this website where I had to ask "how old are you?" whilst reading a reply that someone had given to me...nothing would suggest that this person lacks maturity until they brought up their personal life as an excuse for their attitude. I do feel quite bad and have a lot of compassion for stress that a person may be under but I also know that we all endure a lot of stress and manage it in different ways--what doesn't make a bit of sense is when we take our stress out on others.
I really don't do the whole "venting" thing, especially on social media, but I just started to notice a lot more that lately we have just lost that sensibility of being conscious of other people's feelings or situations--selfishness is the theme of the vocal generation and it's kind of sad to see. I know that you have to focus on the self more (As I have realized that I cannot take care of everyone else if I cannot take care of myself) but the way in which you impress upon others DOES in fact matter. Just be aware of yourself, be aware of your words, be aware that you are not the only person with stress, sadness, or horrible circumstances--you just might not be as good at hiding it as the next person. Shake a hand, give a hug if you can, and be genuine in saying "have a fantastic day" because your words may be the only kind thing that person hears all day.

I live in Oregon currently but someday would like to relocate to someplace more to my personality liking. I am an artist, of all things--singing, dancing, drawing, writing, painting, creating. I am always learning...the more learning I do the better.
