Social Media is often seen as a negative thing.
However, I genuinely believe that post all my content on Social Media has made me a better person.
I’m a person who has always had pretty strong opinions and has a tendency to shoot from the hip in voicing those opinions.
But when I’m posting that opinion on Social Media, I always stop, just for a brief moment, to consider how that opinion will be received, perceived & interpreted.
In doing that, I am forcing myself to be more aware of the opposing points of view.
I am being more empathetic to those with differing opinions.
OK, sure, there are some who would say I’m not exactly doing a great job at that. And that I need to be more thoughtful and considered…but I’m trying.
