There are a variety of things in this world that I have grown upset with. One of them being the way, people my age especially, act online. People feel as though just because they are hiding behind a screen, they become a different person. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for being a different version of yourself online. A more deep, talented, and open version of yourself. I'm totally okay with you revealing the part of you that you are to afraid to show in person. However, I start to have a problem when people transform into this monstrous version of them self, feeding off of the hurt feelings of others. Just because you are behind a screen, and nobody can see you, doesn't mean you have permission to gallop about, making others miserable. I mean, first of all, the fact that some people find joy in bringing pain to others, makes me sick to my stomach, and fills my heart with acid. I know they tell you this in school all the time, and this will seem repetitive, but it really doesn't make you cool to put others down. You don't gain any form of respect from that, you gain respect by helping others and being a positive role model. Kindness gets you further than rudeness ever will. It is awful that I don't even want to go on witty anymore due to the fact that I have to sit and watch all these comments go back and fourth to people being unkind. Just take a step back, think about what you're saying, and you decide whether sending that rude message or comment will get you further in life, and if it'll make you a better person. I can't force you to be kind, but the benefits of being kind far outnumber the benefits of being a cruel person.
