Care Bears

February 10th, 2020

There are those who care more about sharing their opinions than they care about the people who read them.

I know this isn’t a revelation, but it is for me.

My heart has been broken by people as of late (see: my post last week about removing unkind folks from my internet life), but I couldn’t define the thing that was bothering me, in simple terms, with words.

Until I was driving to work today, and this phrase hit me like a bag of ice.

There are those who care more about sharing their opinions than they care about the people who read them.

This is a definition of toxic behavior.

And as I began to whittle my tree of online social contacts down to just those who display higher levels of kindness, smarts and courage, I started to breathe easier. I started to feel more comfortable with who I was regularly seeing and interacting with.

And I remembered what it was like to be around a whole bunch of people who just care about other people.

And my ❤ feels a whole lot better.

This is a photo of my dog and I just absolutely loving each other. Because this is the kind of content we need to share sometimes.

Happy Monday, and have a expectation-busting week. Keep ’em low, and watch how amazing everything goes.
