The anonymity of social media has become a breeding ground for people who think that they can be unkind or hurtful without taking responsibility for their actions. Think again. Our words and deeds belong to us, and there is no hiding from the consciousness. There are nuggets of wisdom out there to help us on our path, such as “Turn the other cheek”, “Two wrongs don’t make a right” and “Take the high road”, but we just see them as cliches. They are all truisms to remind us that even though others in our lives may be driving with their GPS off we don’t have to do the same.
