Lately it seems that social media and the internet has amped up the negativity. Comments left on Instagram, blogs, and websites by viewers are just flat out mean.
You may have heard about vlogger Em Ford. She creates makeup tutorial videos on YouTube via the My Pale Skin link.
Despite struggling with acne Miss Ford routinely shows her face without a drop of makeup. I myself find this truly refreshing and inspiring. I am not alone. She has received thousands of messages from viewers all over the world who struggle with self confidence and insecurity.
At the same time other viewers seem to have forgotten that there is a human being who creates these transformative looks.
She recently made a video that is so worth watching. I hope it will be a game changer. Please be advised that some of the comments left by viewers contain profanity.
While sticks and stones break bones words can hurt. Words can break a heart.
There’s nothing worse than an insincere apology. But forgiveness is something we give ourselves and I will get there.
Let’s remember kindness counts!
