The one thing I truly dislike about social media is the blatant abuse of it. I get constant invites to bullshit “causes” such as tell Zynga to do what-the-fuck-ever with my farm/mafia/game show/ kid brother/ my pet monster, whatever.
THAT AIN’T A FUCKING CAUSE YO!
Causes was created so that people who have legitimate charities/NFP organizations and such to raise money and awareness about things that are important, you know like cancer?!? Your farm? Not so much.
I don’t say that to be insensitive or mean, I play the odd game here and there on FB to
procrastinate from doing things that I should be doing pass the time. There’s nothing wrong with that, although abusing such things like that are. So. Very. Wrong. So yeah, I report those.
Yeah I totally am one of those people.
Anyway, another thing I dislike about social media in general is the need for it to be a popularity contest for some, an audience for others. Whatever the reason, some people abuse it to a whole other level. Such as a need to churn up constant drama! Especially when I see things like this:
OMFG! NO ONE LOVES ME, I WANT TO DIE </3
I’M GOING TO GO KILL MYSELF RIGHT NOW!
(enter dramatic sigh/sob here)
You know what I say to that?
PLEASE DO! Because then I don’t have to:
- A. block you from my news-feed anymore and/or kick you off my friends list for being a drama queen douche.
- B. Wonder if this time you’re actually being fucking serious or not.
- C. Waste my precious time and training trying to help you help yourself when really you just have a low self esteem and need some fucking redemption of yourself!
Suicide is serious, so stop fucking around about it and making it into some personal fucking game for your attention seeking ways!
It’s not to say that I don’t care. Because clearly I DO otherwise I wouldn’t bother with this, nor this. Suicide is no stranger to my life and out of all the people I lost, not one of them went ahead and broadcasted it all over the fucking internet. The signs were there (they always are) however they’re so subtle that you might not notice them if you’re not paying attention. The key to communication is to not only listen, but to hear what’s NOT being said. So when you scream suicide online like some fucking drama Queen idiot, the only thing you’re saying to me is this: I need help, I need someone to love me. NOT :I want to die.
So you think about this the next time you want to say shit like that, think about the people’s heads you’re fucking with, simply because you need attention.
Think long and fucking hard.
