But again, here I am reminding people that we are all equal. There is not one person who is better than the other. YOU are not better than me, and vice versa. If you are walking around thinking like you are, then I feel bad for you.
With social media these days, it's easy to hide behind the computer. It's easy to write things that are plain out rude and mean because you can always come back and say, "Oh I didn't mean it that way... that wasn't my tone." But in reality, you know exactly how it can come off as, but still wrote it. Shame on you. Nothing pisses me off more than seeing comments on other friends post/tweet/instagram that makes fun of them for their weight. How dare YOU judge someone else. I don't care if it's an acquaintance or a close friend, you will be surprised on what you DON'T know about that person's struggle. But to post something that comes off as mean is completely a douche thing to do. Yes, DOUCHE. Especially when the last time I checked, you are not gracing the covers of Vogue magazine or GQ magazine. And by adding "hahaha", "just kidding", "lol", "bawahahaha" doesn't make it OK.
Posting comments such as these are hurtful, especially when that person's social network can view that as well. I am pretty sure you wouldn't like it if people posted to your social networks making fun of your weight for all of your friends to see.
How about we try to be nice. It's that simple.
Just. Be. Nice.
Why this has to be said is beyond me. Apparently common sense is no longer valid when people feel like they can run their mouth. Just because you're behind a computer doesn't mean people don't know who you are. Strangers to you who now know how douchey of a person you are. How sad is that? Your first impression has degraded you simply from a comment you put up.
Degraded. Let that sink in.
Think about that the next time you want to post something that comes off as rude and mean.
This is something that we all need to practice. Hell, I am not here saying I am effin perfect because I am far from it, but I will never allow myself become a BULLY to make myself feel better. That's not me.
And remember, if you allow yourself to be the bully... it then becomes fair game for some people.
If you can dish it out, make sure you're prepared to take it because there are some people who will not give a shit and do the same crap to you. I think it's wrong to do that, but let's face it, not everyone likes being the better person.
As Ellen says, Be Kind To One Another.
