01 Aug Wow
Just … wow.
Social media and I aren’t getting along like we used to. Well, wait — I should say Facebook and I aren’t getting along like we used to. Twitter and I are still on speaking terms, and Instagram and I still enjoy each other’s company.
But that old warning about avoiding the comment section? I forgot I won’t do that again.
I’m impressed with how great the initial poster fought to maintain civility, but damn, he and the PIC (Person In Comments) have been friends for forty years. This dumpster fire of a world we’re living in is eating away at good people, and now they’re turning their anger on each other. Friends are turning on each other in a time where we need each other more than ever.
This is bullshit.
I know not many people read these blog posts (and I love everyone who does). I’m grateful for my friends and my family, and I respect how you feel and what you think about everyfuckingthing out there. You want to rant? Rant. You want to be pissy? Be pissy. I’ll listen, and unless your intention is to cause harm to yourself or someone else? What you say stays with me.
I don’t know what else to say about this. Just … I miss the days when people could talk without being attacked.
