Having a Bad Day? Watch What You Tweet | Pinay.com
- Shayne Navarro
It could be anybody’s typical day.
Like someone woke up 30 minutes late for a very important appointment or somebody woke up with a stiff neck just before a big cheering competition.
Status: “Bad trip! This is definitely not my day and it sucks!”
It could be like anybody tripping coffee on your shirt or a high-heeled shoe stepping on your dainty little feet.
Status: “You Dumb! Where’s your brain???”
It’s like you’re failing math grades or the favoritism fact in your social science class.
Status: “School is definitely not for me! I hate my class!!!”
Or it could be that annoying roommate who keeps on snoring day and night.
Status: “I hate you, PIG!”
And so on . . .
We are now living in the world where social media plays an important role in our daily lives. Some people have unexplainable desires for posting every little details of their emotions, just as much as how their body needs food.
There is nothing wrong with that—if only we are not waking up each morning feeding on all the negative things being splashed on different social media network.
Random postings . . .
People post anger to release emotion.
People post hatred, seeking compassion.
People post envy to envelope their brokenness.
People post pity to hide their own emptiness.
People post failure, longing for support.
Most of the time, people post something bad just to get attention.
These days are not the same old days. We used to connect through mobile phones—that’s if we can afford it. We use to rely on expensive phone calls and snail mail to connect and transmit important messages. These days it’s all about instant messaging.
Fact: Technology is a gift.
This generation may not understand how life is so much easier today now that communication is always at the tip of our fingers. It is a good gift but we also see how social media is exploited.
When we have negative thoughts or feelings, we instantly want to post hate messages on facebook, twitter, blogs and other social media networks rather than seek advice and comfort from friends and families.
This viral abuse in social media is not only spreading negativity, but it is also killing proper communication.
A simple plea can be a command to some.
An act of being thankful can be bragging to some.
And being concerned can be an irritating intrusiveness to some.
What some say can be tackled privately, really. It is not for the whole world to hear and feast about.
We used to say: “Tell me who your friends are, and I’ll tell you who you are.” Not anymore.
Now, we can simply peek on someone’s social media account for us to know what kind of person he or she is.
Beware of your negative postings because your social media background is up for consideration for a job application.
So the next time you want to post anything negative in your social media account, it’s probably good to think twice and realize that negativity will really not take us anywhere.
It is time to shift to the shine mentality. Shine, Pinay, Shine!
