Peacemaker or Agitator
And yet, I've been witness to relationships grown on the shifting sand of ill words spoken at another's expense.
A whisper here. United eyerolls there. A flock of hens: peck, peck, peck.
Unity in negative speak against another seems a breeding ground for false camaraderie.
We often observe such in silence.
More often we become participators. Much more often.
Do you find yourself behaving as an Agitator?
Stirring the pot with every careless word that quietly stabs another?
Thriving in its intoxicating aroma.
Some enjoy watching a spar.
Some delight in a broken road.
It takes greater courage to develop into a Peacemaker.
Which one will you be today?
