Why ya gotta be so mean??

Hey beautiful guys and dolls! How are you today? Are you writing?

More importantly, are you happy? *rant to follow

Today's world is so full of hate, mean words, hate, and more mean words. Why!!


In the epic words of Taylor Swift, Why ya gotta be so mean?

I'm making a pledge to be kind.

Rude behavior does nothing for anyone. Hurtful words, snappy, rude comments, conniving jabs. What purpose do they serve, other than show how unkind and nasty you are?

It doesn't matter if you agree with the person or not. Why can't you simply disagree with them and go on your  merry way, smiling and spreading cheer to others.

Hey, news flash! Not everybody is just like you. But that doesn't mean they deserve to be treated like they have the plague.

Just be nice. You'll be a happier person and the world will be a better place because of it.

Try it. I dare you.

*end of rant

PS: This has nothing to do with the writing community. Just something I encountered in my private life. This world needs more kindness. Hate has become like an epidemic and I'm tired of it. I would love for it to go away. To stop. To end. That is all.


  1. But what if they do have the plague?
    Never any reason for rudeness.
    And yes, I have been writing this week.

  2. I agree. There's never a reason to be rude. And yay for writing! I am too:)

  3. People who feel small are often the source behind mean behavior. Just take a deep breath and remind yourself, it's not about's not about you...

  4. That's often try. Thank you for the encouraging words:)

  6. I do my best to be kind too. Sometimes its a challenge, but I'm not a quitter. :-)

  7. The Dalai Lama says kindness is his religion. I so agree. I have little tolerance for rude people. As my husband would say, "look at all the energy that are expending being angry."
    Good post!

  8. This is so true. I need to work on being pleasant all of the time and not just when it works for me. They say you never know what someone else is going through when you encounter them and to always be nice no matter how they are treating you. Don't ask me who says it though. I really don't know. :)
