Social media can be a gift, when you associate with like-minded people.
While we don't know the reason some people get online, we hope that the people we befriend are like-minded.
I've discovered that my fellow humans are jaded at the truth. I've discovered that a lot of people would rather talk about mundane, non-important issues, because it's comfortable.
Not everyone is looking to, "Be The Change." Not everyone has empathy for your cause, and today, I need you to know that your audience may not be online.
Sometimes, I see that my fellow cultural creatives , and they are tired, and weary. I see my fellow comrades unhappy that no one is willing to stand up for their cause as they are.
HEAR ME WELL: Stop getting mad at people for being who they are. We are not all the same. Some people would rather talk about light issues online instead of issues of poverty, slavery, and corruption. To get mad at someone for not being on the same level as you, or being upset because you want to be supported and the people who follow you don't support you, is, in my opinion, very petty.
Nobody has to support you.
Nobody has to pat you on the back.
Nobody has to stand up and fight the cause that keeps you up at night.
While I would be the first to support another person, I understand that others are not like me, and, it's okay. You would do yourself, and those around you, a favor by lowering your expectations of others' actions.
So, you would say, "Why are you so negative about this?"
I would answer, "I allow people to be who they are and, when I cannot change the people around me, I simply CHANGE the people around me. This is the reason I eliminate people from my circle every single quarter." It's not personal when I eliminate people, and, I don't take it personal when people no longer find me an asset in their lives.
LAST WORDS: The moment you begin to "vent" online about your lack of support, don't be surprised when people are turned off, and stop supporting you altogether.
