When I was younger and stupid(er) I let my emotions fly a lot online. People making opinions I didn’t agree with would make me start flaming or people posting respectful messages would make me bawl my eyes out. But of course that was all when I was a kid.
In time I learned how to properly deal with posts on the internet, starting with the realization that the old saying “Sticks and Stones” applies more to the internet than anywhere else
The second important lesson I learned is that when you get haters, or people start rejecting you…you don’t need to change their mind and get their respect,..nor can you. So I learned when to just stop responding to haters and go do something more useful with my time.
There are more lessons you learn on the internet as time goes by on how to keep your cool, or at least reduce the damage to yourself when you don’t. But I wont go into too much detail.
To this date, very few things make me upset. Certainly not anything you can say about me personally. You wont get past my wall of self-esteem, sorry.
Some things can make me frustrated or angry, like the last time Flat Earthers entered the Youtube comments and would not shut up, but I wont post when heated.
The last thing to really make me upset was the last news in the Syrian Conflict thread. But even then, it wasn’t because of anything anyone said about me and also I backed out when I saw that my jimmies were rustled
