Online social bullying

Online bullying can hurt others and it can have serious consequences. Being bullied can make you feel alone, scared and hopeless. Some people have even committed suicide because they were harassed online and didn’t think it would ever stop. The internet is permanent . It is a part of our daily lives now. No work without internet. This is human tendency- its not complete until shared on social media , sharing is okay for me but not everything I think. Everything is not meant to be shared, Dance Videos are trending now a days, I don’t know what they want to show on the name of dance. but all they’re doing is what others are doing. This is what they called trend. Copying is the new trend I guess.

Beauty Standards.

Whatever you post , even if you delete it,  it can live forever. Assume anything you share online could be seen anywhere and by anybody no matter what kind of privacy settings you use. It’s also easy for people to save and take screenshots of pictures or videos you post online. So be careful before you share something on social media. Also you can see what kind of picture or content you’re going to share with people on social media. Watching your audience can also help you to not get bullied. 

You never look good trying to make someone else look bad

bullying is never ok .

But this will not help us out with this.  Why this social bullying happens?

Reasons behind bullying :

  • wanting to dominate others and improve their social status
  • having low self-esteem
  • having a lack of remorse or failing to recognize their behavior as a problem
  • feeling angry or frustrated
  • struggling socially
  • being the victim of bullying themselves 
  • Bad mental health 

Concluding

If you find anyone doing such activity anywhere whether it’s on social media or in person, don’t ever support such activity. Those words, stupid silly comments can hurt deep and can lead to bad mental health and sometimes even worse than that. In my previous blogs I’ve spoken about the importance of words in one’s life, I request you all, to be careful what you share on social sites and also help others if you find anyone bullying other on social media. Keep your mind healthy and full of positive and good words and always keep in mind not to speak bad or ill about others.
