Actually you know minimally about me. I do not like gossip and I don’t often participate in it unless I feel like the individual is more than deserving. Nash Grier is a perfect example of an individual worth scrutinizing because without SOME scrutiny he’d still think it’s acceptable to say the bullshit he says on a daily basis. I am not Nash Grier. My main argument was that I did not want to be compared to Nash Grier because if I was in his position of immense fame and influence I would not say ANY of the destructive, misogynistic, homophobic or xenophobic shit that he does. So there is no need to get fired up. I may not be a perfect individual but that does not in ANY way make me anything like him. I know what hurts people and I know what helps people and I tend to act on that in a way that promotes the welfare of others and I don’t even ask for anything in return. Meanwhile he spits in the face of decency and CONSTANTLY asks for more than the vast amount of wealth that he’s already accumulated.
By saying if I’ve ever judged someone that I cannot have an opinion on Nash Grier, you are saying that me judging people or participating is gossip is SOMEHOW equal to the mass annhilation of decency that that famous vine star gets away with on a daily basis and that my dear is just not the case.
I’m done arguing, I have my opinion for a reason and I tend to think it’s an ethical one.
honestly i am not a mean person but he is possibly the most infuriating individual that is relevant in today’s media. i really do not like disliking people and saying ‘no’ would not do enough justice to my distaste for him and the tremendous appeal he has on individuals today.
I for one agree that he is too a human being but he has denounced homosexuality and labelled AIDS as a ‘fag disease’ and is a remarkable homophobe in general. He is also extremely unbearable and has remarkably discriminatory opinions that I disageee with. I don’t owe him any respect and neither does his fanbase because he works entirely from self interest. My only point is that I do not want to associate myself with him in any way and the thought of doing so sickens me. That’s not trashing him that’s being completely honest and he’s honest enough to tell the world his disgusting thoughts daily so he should be able to get the same treatment back.
im throwing up at the thought that i could merely resemble him
me and jason used to talk a lot but im a clingy mess and had to distance myself. hes a great guy with a good head on his shoulders :-)
Thank you! I definitely sympathize for anybody who feels the need to post the content, my initial intent was to show people who do post that content that there are different ways to channel that sadness than a way that could possibly hurt others in the process.
Something needs to be said about blogs/forums that post triggering/negative content.
I’m sure the intentions are not initially wrong to post such content, I understand that a lot of the time people post/reblog things based on their thoughts and feelings. I also am aware that social media is a popular outlet for stress and to get all of your feelings on the table.
That being said, I think we need to understand what is appropriate and what is not appropriate as far as methods of channeling that sadness.
I do not have any mental illnesses/disorders, but that does not mean I haven’t had recessions or deep trenches of sadness in my life and I do believe that I can at least vaguely relate to those who do suffer from mental disorders/illnesses based on my experiences and the course of natural, human emotions.
I can also speak from experience as an individual who used to post triggering/negative-thought-provoking content and as someone who has overcome spats with self-harm and successfully recovered.
My credibility aside, my blanket point is that if you or if someone you know is suffering from a mental illness/disorder, has dealt with self-harm or is going through (or has earlier experienced) a turbulent time in life then you should know how absolutely horrible it feels to have those things going on. Knowing how absolutely horrible it is; I feel that, even if you’re currently experiencing it, you shouldn’t make those feelings contagious. *DISCLAIMER* I do not mean that you shouldn’t seek help or express your feelings, what I am saying is that if you are on a social media platform with any following then you should reconsider posting triggering/negative content because even though you’re channeling your sadness in some way, you are also going about it in a way that leaves others susceptible to the same feelings you are experiencing. Seek help, seek advice, seek peace and seek attention; that’s all appropriate and fair, but there is a line that is crossed where not only are you channeling your sadness but you are creating a negative environment.
Also, if you are experiencing any of the negative instances in which I’ve listed prior, do NOT follow blogs or pages that post negative content. Do NOT allow yourself to sulk in sadness. Follow blogs or pages that post positive things, things you like or maybe things you’re interested in. By submitting yourself to that negative atmosphere, you are giving up before you even try to attain happiness. You are essentially telling yourself that you do not want to be happy so you’re going to surround yourself with unhappy things to block the happy out of your life. Though it may not seem easy, giving yourself that opportunity to be happy is the most crucial step in achieving it.
Further, I understand that behind each and every blog that posts negative content, there is likely a person who wishes to be happy or a person that does not have negative intentions. I’m here to explain that there are WAY more effective ways to not only channel your sadness, but to achieve happiness.
Other ways you can channel sadness:
Steps in achieving happiness:
To revert back to my point, there are SEVERAL ways you can channel your sadness and live a positive and healthy lifestyle that don’t involve bringing others down with you (even if that isn’t your intent). Follow the steps and LOVE YOURSELF. You are unique and you possess a personality that is beautiful in radiant in a way that is different than over 7 BILLION other individuals. Don’t waste that uniqueness by indulging in sadness, be happy because YOU CAN.
