I need to get this off my chest because it’s been something that’s been irritating the heck out of me for so very long.
Can we just stop giving accolade and acceptance to negative and obscene people?
Working in the digital world and being very active on social media, you can say I live and breathe social.
I don’t miss a thing.
Especially when everything is put out there publicly these days.
Including what you’re having for lunch (guilty) or that you found some bump on the back of your ears and you’re wondering what it is (okay…?)
Some things are better left unsaid, folks.
But still, I will take those any day over the “Nasty and Negative Nellie’s”.
When my timelines are constantly flooded with trolls and their army of ogres, I start to wonder how on earth these people have such a huge following and even worse, why they even get support for all their nasty, rant-y comments.
It’s either there are a whole lot of people that are unhappy with their lives and enjoy feeding off one another or there are a whole tons of people that enjoy watching destruction for their own odd pleasures.
I like to call it destruction because that’s basically what they do.
They live their lives trying to annihilate everything in their path in hopes it will make them feel better.
If that means constantly berating everything from brands to celebrities to bloggers to that mother at her child’s softball game that seems to always have her sh*it together, she’ll do it. And often.
Drama is like her oxygen.
She’s also what I call an “energy vampire”. She sucks the good energy out of those around her and can smell it a mile away.
I’m not saying I’m perfect.
I have called out a few things publicly, most mostly because I wasn’t able to get the closure I needed to rectify any of my “issues” in private.
Or because I was just having a crappy day and felt like getting something off my chest. I’m human.
I can be callously sarcastic sometimes, but that’s just my dry humour and I am always careful about offending someone.
But if you’re the type of person that has to constantly have something negative to say about everything, and often, in a belligerent manner, I think it’s time you take a seat, turn off your smartphone and start re-evaluating your life before you cause any further damage.
Fix whatever issues you need to work on for yourself and learn to know when things are just better left unsaid.
We all have our own problems and we all don’t agree with many things, but that doesn’t give us the right to be nasty because someone doesn’t fit into our standards.
And reality check: You’re not always right. This is something I am also still learning myself. Hey, I’m the eldest child… it’s ingrained in my overall being. 😉
What makes me shake my head too is when women like this proudly display and boast about being a Feminist.
Do you even know what that means?
adjective, Sometimes, feministic
1. advocating social, political, legal, and economic rights for women equal to those of men.
2. an advocate of such rights.
How can one be a so-called Feminist when they are often antagonistic towards other women and their personal choices?
Hmmm… something to think about.
It’s not always easy, I know, but women… can we just put our pride aside for once and learn to support one another? Even if we don’t agree with something, learn when is an appropriate time to speak and more importantly, when NOT to.
