Premature posting can have dire consequences

We live in a world where we share every tidbit of our lives from who we hung out with last night to what we just ate, which begs the question, do we over share? Absolutely.

Many people share personal details about their lives that the world does not need to know. For example, why do celebrities feel the need to publicize feuds over social media?

I’m not going to lie. I love reading about them, but it’s like, why can’t we all get along?

Recently, the most talked about feud on Twitter was between Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa. Wiz put out a tweet with the initials “kk,” which Yeezy took as a reference to his wife, Kim Kardashian and he then went on to insult Wiz multiple times. Khalifa corrects Kanye saying he meant “kk” as weed, and Kanye apologizes. Amber Rose, Queen of Twitter and ex of both Kanye and Wiz, didn’t let Kanye go without saying something. She asks him why he’s mad, and references a highly personal act they used to do as a couple.

Why do they feel the need to call out people? It’s simple. All they want is attention, which gets the world talking about them. This feud certainly helped draw attention to Kanye’s new album, which is apart of the reason why this feud even happened. If no one is talking about them, then they’re irrelevant.

Celebrities are not the only ones. I’m sure we all know that one person who tries to stir up something that doesn’t need to be. It’s amateur hour, honestly. If that person is not real enough to confront someone directly, then they should not be entertained with retaliation.

We need to live in a world full of love and kindness where we support one another in anything we do. Why would you want to be that person who makes someone feel horrible?

This world would be a much better place if we spread positivity, and Ellen DeGeneres says it best when she signs out with, “Remember to be kind to one another, goodbye.”
