Don’t Feed Into the Hate

I have to vent about something. I need to vent about the fake bravado and toughness I see on social media.

I want to see people win, whether it is in life, or on social media. The only exception I have to that is when someone tries to get ahead by putting other people down, either subtly, or directly.

Certain people on social media wants to discredit every successful thing you did, in order to make themselves look better. They will tell you that this doesn’t matter, or that don’t matter, only because they’re not doing, or unable to. They constantly talk about how they’re going to kick somebody’s ass, or how they have someone’s back, even though they live in the boondocks by themselves somewhere. What I’m about to say next sounds like hating, but the worst part is that they have people who agree with them. They agree with the hatred, and bully-like mentality (even though they say they hate bullies) they spew on social media. It’s sickening!

These people don’t know anything about pain and despair. Poverty and violence. Some of them have been spoiled all of their lives. Now, all of a sudden, they’re tough. They drop F bombs like it’s nothing, like it scares someone. They’re not tough — they’re imposters!

The haters — the fake tough guys and girls on social media — are more of a problem than you might imagine. The ones with a decent amount of followers are looked at like role models by a blind few. The ones who are led astray by them carries their negative influence over to the real world, with devastating consequences. They get cursed out, they lose their jobs — some even get assaulted. They’re lives are ruined, while the influencer of hate who’s scared to leave their house still lives comfortably.

I beg you, please don’t feed into the hate. Don’t let someone’s petty anger change your view of the world for the worst. Our words have the power to make it a better world for all of us. Let’s make it, a better tomorrow!
