“ Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what fork you use. ” ― Emily Posta
Ah, the theatre, the theatre. The internet has become a plethora of judgmental people that lurk around social networks with the intent to do more harm than good. Do you think these bullies and trolls would be gutsy enough to act this way if they didn’t have that almighty computer screen to hide behind? Maybe, maybe not, but some can play the villain’s role without a hitch.
“Those” and “they” are the ones that do not have any awareness of the sensitive feelings of others. Perhaps, “they” just don’t care; and/or perhaps, their uncaring persona is a shield to hide their own sensitive feelings.
No matter what the reason, poor manners is growing by leaps and bounds. It’s unfortunate that poor manners are even an option for discussion. Isn’t it just as easy to be kind to someone, as it is to be unkind to a person?
Surely we know how we would like to be treated, then shouldn’t we understand how to treat others? The earth is becoming atilt and not in an upward position. We must add weight to the positive side of the scale. It’s time we bring back good manners!
It doesn’t matter how we do it or what fork we use, as per the quote. Let’s do something about it! Life it too short not to.
As Ellen DeGeneres states at the end of her show “be kind to one another”.
