Lately, I’ve been feeling like the Internet is just way too full of hate. I’m mostly talking about reddit because that’s my biggest exposure to other Internauts, but this is generally true. People are always finding something to hate online. Authors, musicians, actors – hate hate hate.
Our lives are full of way too much hate. If you hate something, then why do you keep talking about it online? I’m not saying that I’m not guilty of this, but I’ve been trying to do it a lot less. I’m not talking about petty things like “oh, I hate celery,” either. This really involves people or works of art (songs, movies, etc).
I personally identify more with positive behavior than negative behavior.
If you hate the president, then stop complaining online and instead start setting a good example to get people to understand your point of view, and then hopefully they’ll go to the polls with you and vote for someone that you do like.
If you hate Britney Spears, don’t attack people that like her. Just do your thing to promote the music you like and move on.
Why are people so geared toward hatred instead of toward things we like or love? I don’t get it, and I don’t like it.
I’m not perfect, and you’re not perfect, but we can all try to cut the negative garbage out of our lives.
