Bitterness Backfires on the One Who's Bitter: Why I Will Never Read Comments on the Internet Again

  Bitterness abounds. We can't seem to escape it. Bitterness is having a heyday on the internet these days. You can't write anything, post anything without someone making a snide comment or being negative. I don't care if you think it's your "right to free speech"!  Stop being so bitter!
  In "52 Little Lessons from It's A Wonderful Life", Bob Welch, states: "Bitterness, no matter what it's form, is self-induced misery. When we vent our frustrations at others it only increases our own frustration.  When we fail to forgive, in other words, free others to be human, we enslave ourselves.    When we obsess over having what others have (or say or write) we become all the poorer for doing so."
  In other words, "If you can't say anything nice, shut up!"

  I know I'm being a little strong here, but I'm tired of reading articles by well meaning people and then see really crass, bitter comments at the end.  Who died and left you as the editor of all things written?  If you didn't agree what the author wrote why did you read it? Why should I care what YOU think about the article?  Go write your own article.
  Let's get back to being nice here, people!  We are young, we are fun and WE ARE CATHOLIC!  And we can rise up above all the bitterness and hate and set a good example!
