My favorite aspect of Buddhism (so far) is the concept of right speech, because it has helped me so much in my life and especially (funny enough) in relating to people online. A few years ago I started practicing right speech in online discussions. I'm still not always perfect, but my experience of being online has been a lot better when I am able to keep this in mind.

After some quick research right speech is super interesting! I had never heard of it before. I briefly studied Buddhism in a religious studies class but we never discussed this. Thank you so much for sharing, definitely going to do some further reading on it. I'm happy right speech has had such a positive impact on your life :)

That it's not necessarily a religion, but a philosophy that's scientifically proven to reduce suffering.
