Why You Don’t Always Have To Respond On Social Media

Recent events have led to a lot of negativity on social media, it’s important that we all come together right now. When scrolling through social media, I see people ranting about how much they disapprove of others’ viewpoints because they don’t align with theirs. 

But especially now, it’s important to remember that others will always have different viewpoints than yours and you should respect them regardless. People all over the world are dying,as a whole, we should recognize just how many things are more important than our own perspectives. However, we’re letting our opinions divide us more and more each day. 

After all,everyone is entitled to their own opinion. But when you denounce other people’s opinions over the Internet, you cross a line into hatred. 

Still, instead of acknowledging that we all have the right to safely share our beliefs, many of us are more concerned with protecting our own opinions than with trying to understand other perspectives. Instead of providing criticism, spread positivity throughout the world and not add to the problems that we currently face worldwide. 

If you see something on social media that you don’t agree with, keep scrolling instead of engaging. In circumstances, it’s not beneficial to fight because so many people are attached to their perspectives, and that’s OK. We don’t all grow up thinking alike, so we should be respectful and understanding when others think differently than we do. 

You can even spread positive energy instead of ignoring posts you disagree with. Tell people that you understand where they’re coming from, even if you disagree with their views.

Let’s listen and uplift others instead of putting them down and judging. 

The Internet is full of negativity. When we see posts that we disagree with, let’s not let the hatred spread. Instead of immediately telling people how “wrong” their beliefs are, keep scrolling or respond with understanding. Your response won’t just benefit you; it’ll help change our aggressive Internet culture. After all, with so much bad news in this world, we could all use a little bit of positivity.
