Guilt-Tripping Is Damaging To Your Followers’ Psyches

dimensionslip:

nenilein:

I have been avoiding the use of my dashboard for months now, and the more often I attempt to look at it again, the more I realize that I am really better off ignoring it.

Oh, how delighted I was to wake up today to find yet another post telling me "If you don’t do X, you are an asshole!" among the small selection of posts my tumblr phone app shows to me, regardless of how quickly I try to switch to my blogroll. And by “delighted” I mean “I absolutely lost all desire to have breakfast this morning.”

Now, there is a reason I am not clarifying the identity of action “X” here, and for a reason: It is entirely irrelevant. Because the moment you have any kind of post with the message "…or you are horrible" there is only one single thing that post is going to do to any of your followers who have ever in their lives, no matter how far back, not taken “Action X”. And that’s chipping a piece of their self-esteem away from their unconscious.

Hey everyone, the above post is a good read. I especially recommend it if you have a habit of reblogging the aforementioned posts.

I’m not particularly fond of those post variants either, in all honesty. Posting that is an effective way of defeating the purpose of the post in question and greatly lessens the chances of me reblogging the said post, even if I find the original content to be “reasonable”.

If, by some chance, you really, really, really have to reblog one of these “if you don’t reblog this, you’re a horrible person” posts, I would like to implore you to please strip out the part that says that. It doesn’t have to be a neat HTML removal of the post—just highlighting and backspacing the demeaning portion should do wonders for the improvement of the post in question.

We are dying from overthinking. We are slowly killing ourselves by thinking about everything. Think. Think. Think. You can never trust the human mind anyway. It’s a death trap.

D: If you could be talented at something, what would it be?

Hmm public speaking I guess? I’ve always been bad at it and I literally freeze up and stumble on my words when I do esp during presentations, interviews and stuff.

And singing too, probably. I’ve been part of a church choir before but I wanna learn how to hit better notes haha

HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE Let’s say it’s 6.15pm and you’re going home (alone of course), after an unusually hard day on the job. You’re really tired, upset and frustrated. Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up into your jaw. You are only about five miles from the hospital nearest your home. Unfortunately you don’t know if you’ll be able to make it that far. You have been trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself..!! NOW HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE… Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness. However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest. A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again. Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can perhaps buy precious time to get themselves to a phone and dial 911.

That’s what real love amounts to - letting a person be what he really is. Most people love you for who you pretend to be. To keep their love, you keep pretending - performing. You get to love your pretence. It’s true, we’re locked in an image, an act - and the sad thing is, people get so used to their image, they grow attached to their masks. They love their chains. They forget all about who they really are. And if you try to remind them, they hate you for it, they feel like you’re trying to steal their most precious possession.
