With so much going on in our personal lives and the world around us, it’s easy to fall into the downward spiral of negativity. Many things we come across affect us on a deeper level, and as a result, we can never truly relax, unwind, or even feel happy.
Positivity is like a friend that we, unfortunately, take for granted. While we want to be positive in our life, it can be quite difficult if you encounter more negative posts than positive ones.
Be the change you want to see
Be a driving force in making online spaces more positive. Here are some reasons why it’s so important:
Negative emotions take a toll on us
Do you remember the moment you were complimented more vividly than the moment you were criticized? As humans, it’s in our nature to dwell on the negative more than the positive. One negative comment can ruin our day enough for us to overlook all the happy moments.
Negative bias is legit. It’s the notion that anything negative has a greater impact on us. Negative comments and thoughts tend to stick with us much longer, which is why staying positive is such a struggle.
In the midst of all of this, adding positivity to social media is the need of the hour. With an overwhelming amount of negativity on social media, it’s important to spread as much positivity as possible. When you see people trolling others, put in a good word or report such accounts. Remind people that what others have to say doesn’t matter. Trolls just seek pleasure in bringing others down.
Positive emotions improve our growth and self-esteem
Spreading positivity online helps support our growth. Reading inspiring articles about self–love and worthiness and seeking help for mental health issues increase our awareness and self-reflection.
It takes a while to embody self-love and acceptance, but once you’re there, your life will only change for the better. Spreading positivity online does just that; you grow as a person to the point where no one can knock you down.
Social media posts amplify the impact of messages
Anything said and shared on social media tends to get an exaggerated response. This is one of the reasons why celebrities and social media influencers need to be careful with what they post. Mob mentality is easy to fall into and when we see celebrities with huge followings post certain content, it’s easy to succumb to it.
