80% of social media comments make up 20% of people's views.
A minority voice is thus the loudest.
But who are the people who can't resist commenting with abuse, harsh words, anger and insults?
Why do they not believe in "if you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all?" Or, "treat others like you'd like to be treated yourself?"
In all honesty, I do it myself - harshly judge things I see or read online - but just in my head and then I pause, reflect and reframe, realising my anger and instant reaction are based on my issues, not the person triggering me. I’m responsible for my triggers, not them.
What would a world, and social media, look like if we reflect rather than react?
If we use a voice of compassion over criticism?
What's the story you tell yourself, and is it helpful or hindering?
Remember though - it's your life, your choice!
After all, this is the Manual of YOU!
Until next time, take care, stay safe - and sane - and make kind choices!
