I passed a bookstall today, and a title caught my eye: I Was Shamed on the Internet—Now What?
Forget it, Kid, is my advice. Maybe I’ve been shamed, too, but I don’t know about it. Older people know enough about life to rarely shame. Whatever I’ve done, you would, too, in my circumstances.
Maybe, too, I am a couple of generations too old to appreciate the problem (I don’t even have a cell phone. “How do you keep in touch with your friends?” younger people often ask me. We talk face-to-face, I tell them. That’s enough.)
