If it makes you feel “blah”, turn it off (Self Help for Trolls #7)

▶️ Watch on 3Speak


I got sucked into some depressing news recently and wasted a lot of energy worrying and arguing and lost focus on all the things I can do. This video is about how to NOT do that and stay inspired when the world looks dark.

I double post at YouTube, my main goal there is to bring more awareness about 3speak and Hive. Please subscribe and like my videos there so I can tell more people about Hive! If I ever make money over there I will reinvest it in Hive projects 😀

Sort:  

Oh man, sometimes I get sooo triggered, but I think I only do it when I feel like it, in a detached way. I'm also very, very polite about it and show that I understand where they are coming from, even if I think they're a horrible person (or behaving horribly - we are all love inside at the deepest core level)

'Oh I'm so sorry you that experience, that must have sucked. I completely understand why you must have felt that way - it must have been so frustrating! I can kinda see where they're coming from too, especially with the political history of... and ..... I try not to.. because I'd rather.............. '

or something like that!

I totally love Instagram. We've met lots of people in one of our niche hobbies, Landrovers - @wildtrackdreaming. And youtube - we've watched some awesome things there and my husband finds SOOO much informative stuff to help with mechanic problems! Yesterday we watched an incredible doco about lebanon - indigo traveller I thinK? So good. So yeah, there might be censorship and all kinds of things, but there's some fabulous stuff there I'll support forever! Damn, I wish they'd publish on HIVE too, just for the hell of it!

Lovely to hear your beautiful voice, and thanks so much for your positivity which I needed muchly this week.

I love you xx

❤️! I feel like Twitter is dipping my toes into mass collective consciousness interpreted into text. Fb is all my old connections and I can’t figure out if I get no likes cause people don’t care or because all those rt articles about Assange in 2011 made the algorithms hate me. In any case, I’m not cool on fb. YouTube is my favorite. All these companies are awful but there is just so much useful and funny stuff on YouTube and I already feel satisfied with the friends I make here and using fb to contact IRL people.

Instagram is hard for me cause I suck with pictures. So far it just recommends me titties....it’s my fault....I click.

And as far as dealing with those people, I try to troll lovingly or just give them a pat on the back “sounds tough”. When I can I try to troll lovingly 😃

I disagree that there is more we share in common than not with white supremasists, that's who we're talking about right? You are right to try and ignore it and shut it out, it's a priviledge to stay calme and to have them in front of a screen as opposed to real life.

Mindfulness regarding social media is totally where I'm at too, currently listening to an audio book on Ikigai.

I love your positive outlook, keep these videos coming luv.

Thanks 😀

I don’t think there are THAT many real white surpremicists, out there. Sure there are some, but they are probably all inbred and have never left their hometown. Small world makes for a limited world view.

Most people are just too overwhelmed with their own issues and didn’t receive enough love as a child so they don’t have compassion or patience to care about other peoples problems. And in that sense I think most people arguing on social media are the same.

I think we all deserve fulfilling and peaceful lives. I always make a very conscious effort to stay away from emotionally unstable people and overly aggressive people. It’s not easy but finding or building a community that doesn’t engage in all that makes it much easier.

There are a few videos on youtube about Hive social blockchain. You have taken a good step to promote hive to all.Thank you @whatamidoing

You really spoke well here and l'm also of the opinion that we shouldn't pour our emotions or energy into the drama that is going on in the political setting. Some people are already blinded with their clouded mindset so, any attempt to reset their mind towards approaching things in a sane way is always proving futile.

Your free flow of inspiration in this video is a very nice thing.

We can believe and stand with somethings but we can't just push people into flowing with us. The idea of Facebook, Twitter and other social media is also there to do something good to some people.

We are doing well here so, we should always continue to grow here. Anyone that wants to come will surely come around.

Nice one buddy. I never really imagined that you are a nice guy. I just thought that you are a Nigerian living outside Nigeria. Heehehe... Well Done ✅
