We can all agree that sometimes social media is a fucking horrible place to be a part of and it can leave us feeling insecure and not good enough so does it really hurt to spread the love? Love attracts love and we need more of it in this world. Girls need to start empowering each other instead of bringing each other down. We all feel insecure at times but imagine if every bad thing you felt about yourself was written to you everyday on your social media accounts, reminding you of your flaws and insecurities, it would be a lot to deal with wouldn’t it? If you don’t like what someone posts, there’s a button called ‘unfollow‘ and what it does is it unfollows an account that you hate so much and then you can move on with your life without seeing it. Sounds good huh? Try it.
Someone wrote something mean on my photo once and although it was hurtful I wouldn’t say it’s anything compared to the level of the horrendous things that I read on these reality stars social media accounts. I wasn’t used to someone being mean about my appearance (well not to my face anyway) and especially because they didn’t know me it felt like a personal attack, it wasn’t nice. I just don’t understand why they’d want to make someone else feel how they would hate to feel themselves? If writing mean things on people’s photos makes them feel more secure in themselves then honestly they really need to look in the mirror and get help. They are not happy and bringing someone else down isn’t solving the problem that lies within them.
I read something from @tfrtc Instagram a few months back and it really made me think, how the fuck can someone so young, be so fucking savvy when it comes to social media trolls. I admire how she deals with so much hate and negativity on her page and she responds to bad behaviour with nothing but love. For a girl with such a huge following shows a great example with dealing with negativity and I think we can all learn from her. Forgive people who don’t deserve it, love unconditionally and show kindness to unkind people, your actions will always reflect who you are so don’t do yourself a disservice by reacting negatively back. – amen.
We’re all allowed opinions of course we are, but if it’s going to make someone else feel bad about themselves for no reason whatsoever then why do they feel the need to verbalise it? If they don’t know someone personally then there is no need to tell the person directly. Like stick it in your group chat if you really can’t go on with your life but forgodsake please do not feel the need to sprinkle our feeds with your poisonous words. ‘If you have nothing nice to say then don’t say anything at all’. Every time a person comments something bad, negative or vile on another persons photo what they’re really projecting are their own insecurities. ‘Your perception of another person is a reflection of yourself’. As unhelpful as this may be and I know it’s easier said than done but please try not to let what someone has to say about you affect you in any way. You are perfect just the way you are, flaws and all and you are the decider of how you should live your life not an irrelevant troll giving their invalid opinions. Treat people the way you’d like to be treated, that is all.
