“Before posting anything on social media, ask yourself three questions: Is it true? Is it kind? Is it necessary? Post only if the answer to all three is yes.” —How to Be Mindful With Facebook
The intentions behind our actions matter because those actions can have immediate and sometimes far-reaching unintended consequences for others.
Few of us have not regretted something we’ve emailed or posted in haste that was not true, kind, and/or necessary.
Consider displaying these three questions next to your computer or as a recurring reminder on your smart phone or other device.
If doing so prevents just one unfortunate posting they will be well worth the effort.
And on that peaceful thought I would like to wish you the happiest of holidays and a wonderful 2017.
