It is true, there is a scientific explanation as why we hate them. Publicly we adore them, we worship them. But given a chance we’d love to take their place. I read Dr. Chris Hart’s column in SN; he once talked about why we relish the fall from grace of rich and successful people. Survival of the fittest. If the fittest fall, then maybe we can take their place and our chances of survival are higher.
If for instance all you have is a Diploma from Kenya Poly (I think it’s a university now, Kenya Polytechnic University? Shouldn’t they drop the polytechnic then since it’s upgraded to a uni? Kenya uni? I digress). I have nothing against a Kenya Poly graduate but I’m just saying its academia status is not the same as say, that of UoN. It’s understandable to hate on UoN students.
Enter the world of cyber bullies. It’s easy to be anonymous on the internet. Your name is Francis? How about you just call yourself Frankie. Then rant all you want, all day every day. I just think it is sad to kill any minute hint of creativity you might have had on talking NEGATIVELY about people.
If you are on twitter you can have hate tweets directed at you all day, telling you to go back to facebook, telling you you are stupid, fat and ugly, slutty and cheap, ghetto etc. Sometimes you are forced to go to facebook and get the pic with the most likes, the one portraying your thinnest self in the most sexy way, and prove to the haters that you are indeed beautiful.
But you see, haters don’t care about the truth. It’s never about the truth but about the glee we get from hating on beautiful successful people. No one will stop having their fun to go dig for the truth.
So hold your head high, the wave of bullying will move onto the next victim. You need to know what and believe in yourself so that idiots don’t sway your opinion of yourself.
@Juuchini has written a survival guide: beat cyber bullies at their own game.
I am running a social media campaign to help a young man replace his jaw. I am still far short of the target of Kshs. 150,000. In fact, we are about (takes out calculator (33,312/150,000)*100) 22.208% into the target. But I shall not give up. You know why?
Sometimes good things happen to good people. Sometimes the good guys win. Sometimes there are happy endings. Sometimes someone will read this and actually respond. Help me make operation smile a happy ending by being one of the 1,000 people to give Kshs. 200 towards this operation. As I said before, 200X1000? Do the math.
Since we’re remaining with Kshs. 116,688.. only 583.44 people need to spare a 200bob and we’re good to go!
