I highly recommend doing this, as it can be quite revealing. Look at it as though you were looking through a stranger’s eyes. What does your page say about you? Is there a common theme to your posts? Overall, is it positive or negative? Does it show your best traits? Do you feel good about what you’re putting out to the world?
Your outer world (the things around you, including Facebook) is a reflection of your inner world (your deep beliefs) and your inner world is a reflection of your outer world. Chances are, the healthier, more positive your Facebook page is, the healthier and more positive you will be. If you change one, the other will change as well.
If you don’t like the answers to the questions above, I recommend deleting the posts that don’t suit you, and start posting things that make you feel good about what you’re putting out to the world. If you’re already proud of what your page looks like, good for you!
When you read friend’s posts that you disagree with, there are positive options for how to handle it. You can ignore them, remembering that it’s not important to agree with everything everyone says. You can attempt to kindly and politely enlighten the situation, or, if the “friend” continually writes offensive posts, you can block that person so you don’t see them. One of the beauties of Facebook is that you can easily control who your friends are, and what you see.
Each time you go to post something, think of someone you highly respect: Nelson Mandela, Oprah Winfrey, Mohandas Gandhi, John Wooden, your grandmother, etc., and ask yourself if they would approve. If the answer is no, consider either skipping a comment, or finding a kind way to rephrase your idea.
Almost everything can be phrased kindly. Here’s an example of changing a negative statement to positive. One day, years ago, I tried on a skirt. Before I thought it through, I asked my husband that horrible question that every man fears: “Does this skirt make me look fat?” As I heard these words exit my mouth, I felt sorry for my husband. I knew the truth, and there was no good response. Instead of blurting out the harsh truth in a hurtful way, he came up with a brilliant answer. “Well,” he said, “you are much thinner than that skirt makes you look.” I was so impressed with his comment, I wondered if we could patent the phrase and sell it to men all over the world. I figured we could make millions! Dash it all! We can’t, so I share it with you. Feel free to share it on your Facebook page. If people start using that phrase, it may improve relationships all over the world! That’s something healthy, worth posting!
