Social media these days is characterised with plenty of cyber bullying…..and yes, I know I am a Grammar Nazi and often correct people’s spelling and grammar but that’s not what I’m talking about as far as cyber bullying is concerned. Besides, even our teachers were pretty mean when getting us to learn some things at school…so Grammar Nazism, in ‘regulated amounts’ doesn’t pass for cyber bullying.
I am talking about the kind where people get picked on, get called names, laughed at for who they are and get mocked for being ‘different’…..that kind. The kind you read on your time line and simply scroll on thanking the heavens that you’re not on the receiving end of it and pray you never get to be. That kind.
At the end of the day, if somebody isn’t like you, doesn’t dress like you, doesn’t have as much money as you do….it’s their life and they have every right to live it, just as you have a right to yours. Just let everybody be…..and let’s all live in peace and harmony! 🙂 Different is good. Too much similar is boring.
Let’s encourage each other because that, in a way, eventually makes us better. – A candle doesn’t lose its flame by lighting another candle.
