You can never really know what’s in someone’s heart. I tend to believe, or try to anyway, that there is some good in the mean people. It gets harder to keep telling myself this when I’ve seen examples of that being otherwise. Some people are strong enough to handle the wrath of others but there are just as many who aren’t. It doesn’t mean those people are weak. It’s okay to be sensitive about things. As much as I want to sometimes it is not so simple to “shrug things off.”
If someone mistreats someone it is definitely wrong. We all have a right to react the way we feel we need to, but if we feel the need to mistreat the person who mistreated us however, that is equally wrong. Instead just try to be kinder than necessary and stand up for yourself by letting that person know how much their actions have affected you. If they don’t know what they did was wrong they’ll just keep doing it to others. Hopefully they’ll learn and eventually grow to become nicer a person.
In this Internet world we live in many people can easily sound rude, obnoxious, and brutally sarcastic. Choosing words carefully is one way of preventing others from misinterpreting what you have to say. Simply giving a heads up about your true intentions is also something of a good idea. Many misunderstand, and many are misunderstood. People get hurt and people do the hurting. There are lots of times when people do go out of their way to intentionally be rude, obnoxious, and brutally sarcastic. The way we have grown to have conversations on the internet, with strangers especially I might add, can get really bad. You wouldn’t walk up to a stranger and start up a sarcastic convo with them, putting them down right? I hope you wouldn’t. I am writing this post because I felt I needed to. All I want is to positively inform that being mean is not nice. I realize people already know being a bully is the worst so why do are there still people out there doing it? There is no justification. Just stop being mean. Find something that makes you happy and let that happiness further transform you into a happier person. Once you’ve found that happiness pass it on to others. Just as Chris McCandless said, “Happiness is only real when shared.”
On that note to whoever actually took the time to read this: please remember to be kind to others, be compassionate, be understanding, don’t be judging, rude or most importantly never aim to put someone down. It’s not always the easy to be kind, but you’ve gotta strive to be. Life will want to make you bitter but don’t let life get the best of you.
Thanks for reading what I had to ramble about. Take care always <3
