The Right To Be Mean?

This is a topic that has been brought up by many bloggers before and even before I started writing my own blog I could never quite understand. Why people feel they have the right to be mean and nasty to people they don't even know?

I could never comment something mean on any form of Social Media, its just not in me to be mean and I cannot understand how others find it so easy? I had wanted to start my own blog for some time now, I enjoy trying out new products and I thought it would be a great distraction from being a stay at home Mammy. It was the thought of a complete stranger saying nasty things to me that held me back until one day I realised by not doing what I wanted to do I was leaving those keyboard warriors win before I had even started.

Joanne Larby (Make Up Fairy Pro) is an incredible Woman, I love watching her snaps about her fitness journey, her make up skills, and just her general day to day life and I have also purchased her book. She recently took to her snapchat to air her opinion on keyboard warriors and it was 100% perfect. I am only human and of course I get jealous of the new handbag someone has or the new shoes but does that give me the right to be nasty to those people? No! Why would I? Why would I take the time out of my day to make someone feel bad over something they have worked hard to get, and even if they got it for free, still none of my business.

One point Joanne made was to get a pen and paper and write down goals or ways that you too can get the designer handbag or whatever it may be that you want, and that is what I do. I write down all the expensive things that I want to get and I work towards them, yes I can't just go into a shop and buy what I want when I want, but who knows maybe someday I will be.

If I follow someone on Social Media that I don't really like or agree with what they say or do, I unfollow them, simple. I wish everyone else could just do the same. If you don't like someones filter on their photo or something they have said, just ignore it, unfollow them, don't be mean, just because your only means of communication with these people is through a phone or laptop does not give you the right to say what you want. You wouldn't say something horrible to a stranger on the street, Influencers and Bloggers are no different.

They are people, people we don't know personally and have no idea what they are going through in their personal lives, FaceBook, Instagram and Blogs have posts and pictures about their lives that they want you to see, they don't go into detail about every single aspect of their life, same way I don't. It costs absolutely nothing to be nice but you could be the difference between someone having an amazing day or a sh*t day. Before you comment think 'Would I like that said to me'?
