Resolving Hate… Through Pictures!
So, I realize my last post was full of things people wouldn’t want to hear from a feminist because they dedicate themselves to ignoring what feminists say. So this supplementary post is filled with pictures with quotes from other people!
I know… calm down Alyssa, they’re still not going to read this. Oh well. I have quotes for my feminist friends too, down at the bottom! But I believe the top quotes are good for anybody fighting for a cause!
Anyway, I think it’s important for us all to take stock of what we’re really doing with our lives. Strong beliefs are great! But if you believe that people should be good and decent people, and spend your days being hateful, then you’ve completely missed the point of what you yourself teach!
What good does hate do anyway? Does it further your cause? Does it make the world more like you want it to be? If it does, you need to seriously reconsider your morals! The world is never better with hate!
And hate certainly don’t help you as a person. In fact, it empties your life of joy that you seriously need!
Now, I know some people join in on a cause because their friends and family are firmly into that cause. That will hurt you too! You spend your days acting like someone who isn’t you, and taking on morals you know to be against your own world views! How does that help?
Some of you are legitimately worried that if change happens, it will effect you in a negative way. I understand your fear. But hating and worrying about change that doesn’t effect you at all is no way to live your life!
Now, for those of you who feel you are being hated on, keep hope! Anger always stems from another emotion.
Learn from the mistakes of those who hate, because it will help you in the long run. You don’t want to be like that person, do you? Of course not!
Don’t let them wear you down! They may attack you, even personally, but they don’t have the power to make you feel their hate. If you know what you’re doing is right, then nothing they say should be able to affect you.
Always consider legitimate arguments. However, many times in angry blogs there is no argument, especially not a legitimate one. So just let them go.
If it does start to bother you, and I understand it will (it happens to me), take a break and reflect on how awesome you are! We all have struggles, and the best of us take on a lot of struggles we wouldn’t have otherwise.
Anyway, that’s about all I have to say! I hope this helps someone to have a better day, or to consider being a better, happier person!
