Mental Health Reminder

I want to talk about kindness again

Because we as collective human race are becoming trolls. I thinks it’s time to remind us about kindness again. I would love to know why people think there opinion is so valuable when your words are full of spite and hatred. I know I write a blog where I voice my opinions and concerns but it is rarely about a person.

Yes I balanced my favourite pin on a dahlia

Don’t get me wrong , sometimes I don’t like the actions or words of someone. But my rule of thumb is not to judge a person by getting personal. If you need to say you don’t agree with someone you can tell them without bitching about it. Verbal diarrhoea doesn’t help anyone and I am pretty sure no listens to them being told off.

No one.

Online trolling is the nastiest and with suicides on the rise and isolation due to Covid 19 not helping matters. Peoples mental health is fragile at best imagine getting emails and messages of hate. It’s not nice and it is petty! Your family brought you up to be better than that.

The reason you are unkind is because you are jealous or bored it’s that simple. Because if you had a busy forfilled life you would have time to scroll through Instagram and leave nasty comments. To say unkind words, to criticise without thinking the impact your words hold is just plain old bullying.

Speaking your mind doesn’t mean you are allowed to be mean, that you should be able to hurt someone. If you actually understood the impact your viciousness had would you still post those cruel words?

I have said it before but if can’t say say in front of your grandmother or your boss then you shouldn’t say it in public.

Yes you can be as horrible and mean as you like within your friendship circle. You have WhatsApp groups for that. But it shouldn’t go any further.

Its dangerous.

It’s cruel

Most importantly it’s unnecessary.

So in a world where you can be anything… don’t be a dick!

About DP

Hi, I am Dana. I am dyspraxic trying to function and get organised in my dysfunctional world. I don’t shy away from technology but I do have a preference for all things paper and analog. I am trying to organise our lives through my bullet journal, travel around the globe and save money!!! Impossible I know. I have a hard time believing that you should spend a fortune on one day. So, with my creative skills and frugality I will hopefully create my dream wedding without getting into debt. My bullet journal has been a life saver, so much that I now have 3. One for life, one for wedding planning and my last for this blog. I am lost without them. I have a wonderful partner, two fur babies ( Manhattan and Frank) a full time job that I love and my love of blogging. Please bear with me with my spelling and grammar I do proof read about 4 times but I still miss things. I won’t be offended if you correct me. So that’s me, I draw and teach art to both kids and adults and I believe anyone can create anything you just have to practice. I have had to try and try at organising, that is why I am the Dysfunctional Planner.

  1. Many online trolls belong to political parties. Their only job is to spread their propaganda and hatred and to troll people who raise voice against govt and their parties. Most trolls troll other people because they are actually attention seekers.

    • Yes, never thought about it like that. I just think being kind costs nothing

      • Yes, it costs nothing being kind, but sometimes your kindness becomes a motivation for trolls because you are not opposing them and they start trolling more people.
