About this Blog

I’ve been thinking alot about the incidents of bullying and the ravages of cruelty in person and online.  I joined an online writing group through LinkedIn and within a few days, I witnessed extreme bashing and hurtful dialog between two members of the group.  I’m sure they didn’t know each other on a personal level.  One of the men asked for help with his grammar and was seeking resources.  The other man jumped all over him with a vengeance for using the wrong link in the group to ask his question.  I was appalled and I hurt for the man being bullied for no reason.  I also decided that even if the group had all the potential of valuable leads and support, I didn’t want to be associated with it.

This blog is intended to spread kindness – support, graciousness, and a kind word.  That’s all you will find here. If that doesn’t interest you, I invite you to seek another blog more in tune with what you’d rather read.  Talk Kindness To Me

  2. Jane, I’ve witnessed a bit of subtle bullying on LinkedIn once. It broke my heart since it was a group of “Christians” who forgot to include grace in their correspondence with an outsider. The outsider said he wasn’t ever coming back–I don’t blame him. I probably ticked off the insiders by clicking ‘like’ on one of his comments.

    I love your title:

    “Talk Kindness to Me.”

    This year I plan on not arguing.

    I will let God fight my battles.

    I will walk away from impolite people.

    God bless you & those that surround you.

    • Aw, Daniel, I am touched. Thank you for leaving a comment. And I believe you will succeed at your plan. When I started my blog, it was because bullying was causing so much pain and I wanted to write only things that would bring comfort to people and let them know that not everyone has meanness in them and has no filter when they express it. You will never regret being kind. At least that’s how I feel. Treat yourself to joy every day. There is something good about every day but sometimes we have to work a little harder to find it.

  4. The anonymity of the internet does seem to draw out the worst in some people–including people who’d be appalled if they were treated badly themselves. Odd. I hope stating your purpose creates a small hate-free space.

    • Thank you, Ellen. I have had very few bullies comment on my writing. A few, but I just pray for them. My motto is treat yourself to joy every day. There isn’t much time to focus on people who don’t appreciate me. Have an awesome day!
