Social media is a fantastic way to share information, make each other laugh, plan trips and meet new people.
It’s our window to the thoughts and feelings of everyone we choose to interact with on a friendly level. It also gives us insight on just how negative people can be daily. It’s draining scrolling through my timelines.
My life isn’t perfect, and although I’m surrounded by love there are days when I let the world get to me. But I refuse to allow myself to wallow in negativity or spread it.
I have bad days but that doesn’t mean I’m going to resent someone who’s having a good one. What do you gain by complaining all the time and focusing on the negative?
Sure, there are times when there’s nothing you can do to cheer me up. Nothing. And too much blind positivity annoys the crap out of me. But I remove myself from situations that’ll make my bad mood worse.
There are people in my social media world who bitch about their lives, the fact that it’s Monday and, “I have to start another week at a job I hate and would rather complain about than find a new one.”
“Oh no, I can’t take luxury trips all over the world like celebrities!”
“Life sucks, men are trash, I’ll just die alone!”
“All girls want is bank accounts, muscles and big dicks. To hell with them!”
Yep, sometimes life sucks. But there’s no need to constantly air out the negativity. You’re poisoning the well.
Contrary to popular belief, complaining to the Universe will not get you what you want. There is no manager to speak to. You’ll be on hold indefinitely.
Am I always positive? Hell no. I bitch and moan. But after I vent, I change my focus. Instead of wallowing in self-pity like I used to, I do something silly and fun like online window shopping for a Mini Cooper or watching an old episode of Scrubs.
Spread laughter and ridiculousness instead of dragging everyone to the cesspool party.
Take a ridiculous picture, save a hilarious meme. When someone you love is having a bad day send it to them. It might be the only thing that makes them smile.
