We hurt a lot of people because hurting people is human.

But, we forget that loving them is human too.

The screens have made things worse because we can’t see their eyes go glassy or their minds go dark as the things we say take hold and blossom into new thorny insecurities.

There are bad people and there are good people, who at the end of the day are just people. So, when we say things aimed to hurt, we should ask ourselves if we would say them face-to-face in a coffee shop over something iced.

If not, those things can go unsaid.

If not, those things can go unsaid.

If not, those things can go instead.

We’re all just people with loose tongues and demons screaming in our ears — don’t be another demon screaming in someone’s ear.

One day these one minute writings will be a big book called “One Minute, Please.” Can I let you know when that day comes?

You can say yes, here.
