Somebody’s wrong on the Internet.

Truth be told, I have had a LOT to talk about lately, but I just don’t know how to get it all out in words. So that’s part of the reason for the sporadic posting.

…Also, I just deleted the rant that was about to follow that first sentence. So self-censorship may also be part of the reason I haven’t been posting much.

That said, please allow me to share the following less-frustrated-sounding bulleted list:

  • Friends, there are people online who have strong feelings about important topics (like politics), and sometimes those strong feelings and opinions contradict yours.
  • When you see that someone is expressing an idea or feeling you disagree with–and they are not actually directing their comments at you–rather than starting an argument with them, you have the option simply to ignore it and keep on scrollin’ down the road.
  • It’s not your job to fix other people’s opinions.
  • It’s silly to provoke fights with others on social media, and then complain that you are offended by seeing their opinions.

In summary: Be a grown-up. Don’t pick fights with others. Move on with your day. Thanks.

 

[Or write about it on your personal blog, so that the people to which your comments are actually directed won’t even see them. I’m sure that’s healthy, too.]
