You wake up and check your Facebook Newsfeeds, it is full with sarcastic humour! Hate blogs, open letters, critical reviews and what not! Complaints and rants about the people around hashtagging them as stereotypes!
If we could just all take a step back we would realize, the not-mainstream has actually become mainstream! Not being a cliché is suddenly the biggest cliché around!!
Well, in situations like this, being the little punk that I’m I go around searching for another stream which hasn’t become main yet! And in the process of doing that, I’ve realized, only if people stop worrying about hashtags, about judging about categorizing in real life!
By hashtagging I mean, stereotyping, categorizing, judging, etc. Okay I will put my point across by giving a few examples especially prevalent in posts shared these days!
Girls don’t want to be judged by the clothes they chose to wear, if someone dresses simply or maybe eye-catchin or sultry, please do not judge based on that! Whether she is easy, lame, townie un-cool or whatever! All the fashion blogs, stop policing people! I’ve always read on such fashion blogs that, fashion is about being confident in whatever you please. So, who is being a hypocrite now!?
Then there are posts saying, ‘why not getting married in 20s is good’, some saying otherwise! Shush! It is an individual’s (couple’s) personal decision! They can take it anytime, neither is 20s early, nor the 30s late, it is when they are ready with their partners to take that decision! So chuck the hate and be happy for them!
Remaining posts are about people cribbing and complaining of the people around! If some person you came across is being partial to someone from his hometown…that is the only way he knows! Don’t be hurt and just accept his ways (M sure you have your own ways too)! You never know when he would start favoring you! Neighboring aunties are always going to have an opinion and stories over your life, gossip is their entertainment, don’t let them affect you, no need for all the hate posts for them! That won’t change them; maybe if you stop caring a damn about what they say, might make them eventually give up!
Don’t dump your besties or partners because, they have that one flaw you read online on some post and it is a strict no-no in a relationship. Because of which you now feel the need to drop them like a hot potato!! Don’t forget you have accepted and happened to love them unconditionally with all their flaws! Of course, bid them farewell, if they are hurting you and are making you unhappy! But let that decision be yours… not driven by all the hate out there!
These are just a few examples of all the negativity!
As the recent Taylor Swift’s song goes,
Hater’s gonna hate..hate hate hate hate…
Baby, I’m gonna Shake It off.. Shake it off!!
So just shake off the judgmental glasses! Leave all the hastags for social networking and not socialsing! Enjoy every aspect of humans around with all the flaws! Give love and and that is what you will get in return!
Hey wait a minute, didn’t I myself just write a hate post!? But it was for hate posts!!!. Well… double negative just made it positive! 😉 I’m going to spread my positivity around..hope you do to!!
