Starting a blog was something I have been thinking about a while but I always wondered how will people perceive me? What will their reaction be to what I have to say? But in the past couple of weeks I have realized it is not what you look like and it is not what you have to say that will cause a major backlash or an over-pouring of love from your readers. It is the avenue where you write and the resources available to your readers.
Masked behind a computer screen with the capability of posting anonymous comments really brings out the monster in most of us. But are you really anonymous to your own self? I seriously sometimes wonder how do people live with themselves knowing that when given the chance to shed all their inhibitions they will be nothing but a bunch of savages ready to pounce or eat alive whatever is available to them. Is the human race really that tragic? Do we have no self consciousness? Do we really not hold ourselves to a higher standard?
Try for once saying what you say in online community forums, facebook chats, private anonymous emails to someone on their face. See how that feels. Do you feel proud at the end of the whole conversation and feel like a great person? Well guess what? We might have graduated from grade school, high school or college but someone people will never give up their maniacal ways of trying to make themselves feel better by attacking others.
I have seen enough faces crying, enough people belittling others hidden behind their computer screen and username free posts but I guess it doesn’t happen when you have to create an account and post something that is trackable. So you know what you do is wrong then my question is how do you sleep at night?
Are you a product of bullying or were you just a natural born bullier? So many questions but no one to as because you will never come out in the open, you will always hide behind your handle “Anonymous”……sucha coward!
note: my posts aren’t reference of things directly or indirectly connected to my life. They are mere observations, things I feel strongly about and would like to utter out loud :) Thoughts and comments always welcome even you are “The Anonymous” type!
