I usually post about positive things, but I think this is one topic that needs to be looked upon. Lately, I have been noticing many people (not in the blog world but in everyday life) who can dish it out but can't take it. They will say rude, snide, and disrespectful comments, and when replied with a clever response, their heads drop like "poor me" and they feel insulted. While the truth is, they engaged in this inappropriate conversation first. I know we all say things we don't mean when we're having a bad day, but when we lash out at someone, we must be prepared to accept the other person defend themselves, and not turn and twist it around to make it seem like we're the victims. The way I see it, if someone can dish it out, they should be sturdy enough to take it. Many times the people around us try to bring us down with their words, but words are powerful. They should be used to lift the spirit, not to harm the body.
