In life, I’m sure we all encounter incredibly mean and stupid haters.
And just like you, I have encountered quite a number of them. I guess, it is human nature in a way to judge the people around us, which I completely understand. But what I completely do not understand is when people hate someone based on their ‘judgement’ ..and then use their words/actions to hurt another person. That sickens me.
Now don’t get me wrong, when it’s fun and games between friends, it’s all cool.
But when it’s a complete attack on one person to another, and someone feels victimized ..it’s not on.
Let’s explain this a bit further, shall we? So, say you saw the picture I posted above without knowing me.
What are your first thoughts? She’s a TB? She’s seeking attention? She dyes her hair red, she must hate being Asian? Those thoughts are all completely fine upon first look, I would say. But, what makes it wrong is when you act on those actions. Leaving nasty comments that could hurt another is disgusting, in my honest opinion. Behind the anonymous mask, you may not think that your words mean anything but on the receiving end, it does hurt. I say this out of experience.
Now, firstly, if you know me, you would know I don’t usually look like this.
But even if I did, there shouldn’t be a problem with it. Right? I constantly see people commenting on a way someone is dressed, that they shouldn’t wear a particular set of item because they don’t look ‘attractive in it’. I think that is complete stupidity; people should be able to dress however they want (within all laws and regulations hah).
Back to the point, words may not seem like much, but they are.
And trust me when I say, they can lead to terrible things. It may not seem like a big deal to you, but it is to someone. Don’t be the push that someone may need to take that step further to take a life – their own or even someone else’s. In fact I recommend that everyone should watch Cyberbully. It may seem over dramatized, but it does happen.
Have you been bullied before?
I’ve been bullied countless times online and in real life.
Also, these photos were taken for Joani‘s Black Milk “Kawaii Challenge” which isn’t up yet!
Edit: I just want to add that I haven’t been cyberbullied recently but thank you to all those who seemed concerned! I just wanted to bring awareness to cyberbullying as I don’t think it should be something to overlook :)
