Ever since Bailee Madison started her Tumblr account, she has made sure she used this platform to spread some light into the world with her inspiring words of wisdom. This time in her new post, the actress decided to focus on the power of social media and how she think everyone should use the words they write online in a positive manner, instead of tearing others down.
"We have the tools to reach out to those we may or may not know, and tell them that they are worthy of having all of their dreams and wishes come true. That even though we may not be able to physically reach out and hug them, we are still able to do something about it, and use the Internet to inspire, encourage, and spread positivity," Bailee wrote. "Just because you CAN say it, doesn’t mean you SHOULD. Just because you don’t know this person, doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt them. I’ll keep this one simple because I’ve said it in almost all of my posts: Words DO hurt. Please remember that and choose what you say wisely, because once you write it and hit the send button, there’s no taking it back."
Bailee brings up some majorly valid points and really hones in on the importance of being mindful with what you send to others on the Internet. She went on to share what she does when she feels like fighting back at those who aren't so nice to her on social media, and her tactics are all types of amazing.
"One thing I’ve learned, is that people with mean intentions want you to engage. It motivates them. So, next time you’re in your room reading a mean tweet, comment, or text, and feeling low remember this:
1- You’re amazing.
2- You are in control of your happiness, not them.
3- You are loved. So very loved, by so many people. Me included.
4- You have the power to turn a situation around for the better.
5- Let’s try to respond back with kindness….. even though it may be hard. Ooo and no subtweeting. I know this one is especially hard ;) ahah
6- And let’s be thankful for everything that happens. Even when we go through hard times.
This is a New Year. A chance to create an entirely new chapter. Let’s write this one together and let it be one full of light, with not even a line of darkness," she shared.
It's all about keeping the positive thoughts for Bailee and not letting the negativity drag her down, something everyone can learn from!
