The theory on our negativity

It seems to be an epidemic. Attitude is contagious and the problem we have now is the number of negative people in the world.

It seems to be an epidemic. Attitude is contagious and the problem we have now is the number of negative people in the world.

It seems a lot of people use online forums as a cathartic outlet when they have had a bad day or when they generally suck at being a member of the human race.

They log onto Twitter or Facebook, hide behind a screen name and bitch about people they’ve never met or know nothing about.

Making negative comments about someone for the sake of it doesn’t help anyone and the more people read or hear that kind of stuff, the more bitter and pessimistic everyone becomes.

It’s the same as the insecure people at school putting other kids down to make themselves feel better, only this time they can hide away behind a keyboard.

In conclusion, negative people, get a life. Stop hating on others for their success or ability or skills, Facebooking or Twittering to tell everyone your opinions on why so-and-so is a bum without knowing them personally. You have to pity people who feel the need to do it to make their lives seem important.
