Small Circle With A Big HeartI love my EP friends.
They have helped me tremendously.
From planning a wedding (no easy task in 35 days), a few dinner parties, helping me and my husband through the death of his father, we have been blessed.
I recently received the best answer to a question someone posted. I went to their whiteboard to thank them and saw the following status.
GIRLS want attention, WOMEN want respect.
I asked if I could repost her status and share it with others. AriesPam said yes. (thank you)
I reposted the status and sent private messages to all of those in my small friendship circle (men included) to join with me in posting a status that I hope will bring awareness and respect to women on EP.
I see a lot of negativity. Not just on EP but in life in general. It is the nature of my job. I work hard to keep myself positive in the light of such negativity (pain and suffering).
I know that bad news always travels faster than good news. It is my hope that the good post will travel as fast or faster than a negative one and make people stop and think before they post something negative as a comment or a story.
Your feelings and experiences are yours but I think if people were more aware of how their comments affect others, they would be more likely to weigh their words more carefully.
By the time I finished sending messages to my small circle, I had already seen its positive affects.
Thank you to my circle and those not in it who have chosen to repost the status.
Positive behavior does make a difference in our outlook on life.
