In this point of time where we are practically glued to our cell phones, we find ourselves in debates and quarrels that are neither productive nor healthy for us. Thing is we see a ‘xyz’ post of a person or a page and we quickly jump into the comment box to see if someone has the same idea as such and start cyber shaming people who oppose our idea; now, I am not saying that the person holding a different ideology is right; all I am trying to say is we all are different and it is up to them and it is their freedom to make that choice; whatever it might be. What I see is people trying to make the ‘other’ person agree upon their terms and bring them on the same side.
PLEASE STOP DOING SO!
We spend countless minutes on arguing that our point of view is right and their point of view is faulty. Why do that? Instead can’t we all just have our say and then part ways? The amount of people coercing their point and pushing negativity is huge and before even doing due diligence jump to conclusions. As humans, it is our nature that we have an opinion about EVERYTHING and judging comes like second nature to us. But are we that incapable of shutting our mouth when it is most needed? Is your way the only way? Plus, repeating yourself proves nothing except the fact that you are not confident enough in your own explanation. Truth is, “We all are so desperate to be understood that we have forgotten to be understanding”- Beau Taplin. Say what you have to and then just listen to what others have to say, acknowledge and get back to whatever you were doing in the first place.
I am not saying we should zip our mouths when things are bad; shout, scream and revolt BUT for things that produce no value at all for any people why waste your precious time? Why waste that priceless seconds and golden minutes where you could be helping someone by spreading positive words; why speak ill when you can counter such temptation by bringing about a change in your mindset. Isn’t this a time to create value and I mean REAL VALUE for yourself and all those around you. So what if your friends are conversing, arguing, debating, and trying to slit each other through the hurtful words and negativity in meaningless posts, can’t you as an individual start being a force of change and positivity?
Maybe this all sounds good and jolly on paper; maybe not. You will only know when you actually start and push yourself to do the right thing. Create value, be a valuesetter and soon you and those around you will benefit from the illumination of what you have created for yourself and the world out there.
But again, I am not trying to coerce or push or turn people into what I believe; this is what I wanted to speak about and I did. What you do next is ALL UP TO YOU.
Till the next artisode, I bid you farewell my friend!
