Don’t Say Anything at All 10/15/20

My mother used to say, “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.” Wise words, words of restraint. Anger begets anger; when you belittle people, when you show them anger, they are more likely to become mirrors to reflect their negativity back

For Yourself 12/3/19

You see it all of the time. Somebody doesn't like something about their meal, so they take it out on the server, not considering that she or he isn't the one who prepared it, or how busy the restaurant is. Somebody doesn't like the return policy, so they take it out on the person helping with the exchange, not considering that it's not their policy. Somebody doesn't like waiting as a pedestrian crosses the street, leaning on the horn but never wondering why that person has to be walking.
