Last week was my first blog and I put it on my social networks as well as bugging my friends to death to read it. I was stoked, what can I say? After posting the post to twitter, I got a very interesting message. The message was from a follower who is no longer that. It read (In multiple messages) “Dear asshole, (Great start) I’m not even going to open your blog post because if it’s anything like your tweets than I don’t want to see your bullshit….etc” No, she didn’t say etc, she just mumbled on about how awful of a person I am and how she’s not going to give my blog a chance. Well, here’s where I prove her right because “If you can’t beat them, join them.”
Something being offensive is relative to one’s own experiences and beliefs. What is offensive to you, may not be offensive to your twin brother. What is offensive to me (Which is very little) may not be offensive to someone in another country. I would like to point that out because there are many controversial topics in the world today and ALL controversial topics have one thing in common…I like to make fun of them. That being said, I do feel empathy for people in awful situations. I just like to lighten the mood… at least for myself.
The point I’m making here is you can’t take jokes, sarcastic remarks, or comments against you seriously, UNLESS they are intended to hurt you. By intended, I mean that the person who made the comment only made the comment to hurt YOUR feelings. However, 99.9% of the time, this is not the case. These are the same odds as Hand Sanitizer killing germs. There’s only that .1, piece of shit that avoids the majority as hard as it can.
So next time you are offended by a comment someone makes not directed towards you, instead of panicking and throwing a fit, you should do something productive, like shutting the Hell up. P.S. in the future, I will hit much more serious issues that pertain to a larger audience, but this was something that was fresh on my mind. I just would like to see people be able to get along regardless of differences and still be able to be shitty to each other.
