What I’ve come to learn from being a blogger and content creator is that sometimes people are unhappy with their lives and tend to project that on other people. Welcome! You just zoned into my world of Cyberbullying. I guess anyone with a social media account have had their own share of Cyberbullying, and so someone may argue that it’s nothing extra.
Well, for a person who wants to create impact, some of these activities can mar one’s creativity. On the other hand, cybersecurity experts advise of the dangers of such activities on an individual’s physical and mental wellbeing.
Going forward, I’ll be sharing a series of hate comments and activities that I have encountered and how it negatively impacts the growth of young women careers in a society like ours.
The first thing you realize about people with Cyberbullying tendencies is that they are always lurking around your posts. By doing so, they bring up your posts in conversations outside social media and tend to have an argument with you on a particular post you made.
Secondly, if they do not know you personally, they will enter your private chats and comment their hate comments so that the rest of the world doesn’t get to see that bitter side about them. As a woman, it gets worse if you do not reply to some of their private chats. Be ready for tantrums and “shades” all over social media. And when it’s your breakfast, you definitely know you got served hot. No two ways about that, LOL. I’ll try and discuss the shade culture in later posts.
It’s not news that people come on social media for various reasons. There are always villains and antagonists in every field of endeavor. I am not attempting to stop any of such people. I just hope that some creative out there chances on this series and finds inspiration to keep going despite the chaos. There will always be someone out there wanting to get at you but you should not cower and let them win. Be the light and let them remain darkness. In the end, when it’s daytime darkness must give way.
On that note, I’ll end with a famous quote that I recently chanced upon which goes like: Always be careful what you hear about a woman. Rumors either comes from a man who can’t have her or a woman who can’t compete with her.
More to come!
