Let me do a quick example. If I wrote a post about Kim Kardashian's butt, or about how stupid Justin Bieber is, people would flock to my site like I was giving cocaine away for free, but if I did a post saying that I had a terrible day and needed some encouragement I may get five or six people that cared enough to actually say something. The rest would just think that I was weak and pathetic, or wouldn't know what to say. Forgive the cynicism but you know it's true.
The unfortunate truth is that society has molded us into these tougher than nails, party crazy, 24 hour comedians, where we never stop and just break our walls down in front of anyone. We'd much rather laugh with somebody, while they throw daggers at a 16 year old kid, or snicker as somebody does an entire blog about female anatomy than to actually do anything that would require heart, or heaven forbid...care.
So my challenge to you today is, instead of immediate clicking on a post that says "Justin Bieber looking like a moron...Click now!!" take a minute to seek out somebody that may truly need somebody to talk to or a hug and give it to them. regardless of how much we laugh and party, all of us have days where we really just need somebody there for us, and unfortunately most of those people aren't there, because they're too busy looking at the new "controversial" pictures of some random celebrity.
Gain substance or die trying and that my friends is my short little rant for today.
