Being in a position to reach a group or a mass of people is a very powerful position. That person is considered to be a leader or a role model. Whether you reach 5, 10, 15, or even a 100 people you have the same responsibility as the one that reaches millions of people. I like to consider that anyone with a Facebook account is in some sort of position of influence. The things that you say will either be uplifting or may have a negative effect, but know that it will have an impact on atleast one person reading your status. I wanted to bring awareness to your role in todays events. Countries all over the world are going through some form of turmoil that splits families and friends. Where do you fall in all this?
When you come across a situation that the media is presenting, you can approach it by being encouraging and bring positivity and peace or you can add fuel to the flaming fire. Does this mean we need to all close our eyes? Absolutely not!
It means that you look at the situation and then realize the impact that your words will have. Ask yourself are you adding fuel to the fire to make a positive change or is it only going to increase the negative emotions of people? Your words are a powerful along with your actions. Whether you state your opinion on a social media platform or just to your group of friends, know that it will make an impression on someone who is able to hear you.
