The social media bubble is a fascinating realm. It’s gorgeous in the way that is connects, inspires, and fosters solidarity in powerful movements. Let’s also take a moment of thanks for quirky animal pages, food blogs that make me clap my hands like a happy, hungry kid, and genius comedic pages that bring on the unexpected snort. That being said, It’s also a murky, sticky place where success is measured by likes and numbers, and where people can safely slash at others with their words and insecurities. I read a Twitter post from the awesome @amahnke (founder of the @lorepodcast ), stating a simple solution to combat the negativity — say something nice. Yup. That simple. Take a second to go message or post on someone’s page who’s helped you, inspired you, or that you look up to. Tell them what they mean to you. You don’t even need to know them. So I started with him. And he wrote back a quick and kind thank you. And boom — day made. Try it out. We could all use a reminder that we’re loved.
