Social media is good for a lot of things; networking, brainstorming ideas, and even meeting some cool people. But just as everything has a positive, it also has a negative.
Over the past five years, social media has become a very negative place where so many folks think they have the right to insult, humiliate and bully other people. They take things to a level that should have never been allowed in the first place and because these platforms allowed it, this type of behavior is out of control.
NFL fans are the best example if this type of behavior. If you follow me on Twitter or even Instagram, you have seen the type of hate I get for supporting 1 particular player: Sam Darnold.
For those who don’t know the “story” behind my support, here it is, as I paraphrase:
These are just a few reasons why I support Sam… as a player. Gritty. Determined. Passionate. Desire to Win. If you are a fan and don’t see that, then what are you looking at? Oh, right, you care about all the negatives from his career. The stupid ghost comments and making fun of him getting mono. Right, sorry I forgot. Then of course there are football fans who just don’t understand FOOTBALL
The greatest misconception in all of sports is that the quarterback is the most important member of a football team. The offensive line of a team is more important than the quarterback simply because without such an offensive line, it is literally impossible for any quarterback, regardless of talent, to gain even moderate success. The reason behind this is simple: on average, a quarterback needs approximately 4.5 seconds to complete a pass. For deeper passes or more complicated routes, a quarterback may even need more time before releasing the ball. However, without an efficient offensive line, the quarterback will begin to be pressured within as little time as 1.5 seconds. No quarterback can ever succeed under such conditions. Not to mention having elite players to throw the ball or hand off the ball matter too.
I am a VERY loyal person. I am loyal until that person does something to make me realize that I shouldn’t be loyal anymore. In relationships it’s the lying, cheating, and obviously if a man ever abused me – same can be said for friendship plus of course, trashing me behind my back and not willingly supporting me.
In sports, I can say that what a player does on the field matters just as much as how he behaves off the field. It’s all about a players character that makes me stay loyal.
Sam is ALWAYS thinking about the kids. He has a passion for kids with Pediatric Cancer.
Here’s the video
And when he was with the Jets, he visited Goryeb Children’s Hospital.
Here’s the video
What’s not to to love about that? That in it self shows me Sam’s character. And ya know what? He NEVER posts that stuff to his social media… to brag “hey, look at me, I’m an athlete helping kids! (Like most athletes do) He just does it. Yes, he has a picture of a kid on his social media that represents #NEGU – but that’s it.
He is a great guy, something I wish in the dating world we could clone. There are so many guys out that that lack integrity, compassion, are humble, show responsibility, are respectful and hard working, not to mention are a little quirky and there ya go- the perfect guy.
Age has nothing to do with maturity either. I know guys in their 40s and 50s who act as mature as a 10 year old and I know guys in their 20s and 30s who act more mature than their years. Maturity is not measured by age. In reality, age doesn’t determine how mature a person is, it’s their personal experiences that determine their maturity level. And on social media, you get to see just how immature guys are these days!
There are guys on Twitter who literally think that love is a game. Um, no sweetie, pulling on my heartstrings isn’t a game! The idea that romance is a game – one where the player who best keeps his or her cool “wins” – is perpetuated by a self-help industry that makes billions from telling women that to be loved, they need to change the way they look, act, and feel. God forbid we strive to have people be their “real self” in today’s dating world. Nope, it’s all about hooking up and that is the “game” men want to play and stupid women follow. Two cheers for the hoes- because in order to land a “player” that’s literally what they want- a hoe. A woman who flaunts her body, acts stupid and dumb, and who can be “arm candy” to all these athletes and “players” because the dating industry preys on women’s insecurities about being desirable by implying that they’re not good enough as they are. And it tells women that when romance doesn’t work out, it’s because they did something wrong. When They didn’t, all they did was “play the game” that the men wanted her to play.
Here is the truth about love and romance: If you never let yourself fall freely you won’t get anywhere near authentic love. The more you follow the self-help game the more difficult you make it for love to find you. If a woman needs to play games to hold a man’s interest chances are not only is he not a real man, but he’s also not the guy who deserves you. See, that is why I don’t chase. You want me to chase you… ha! Okay, bye – enjoy your run.
Having a lot of women isn’t a flex. Having that one girl that nobody can touch is. A lot of boys have trouble understanding the difference between quality and quantity.
There are many people today who don’t know the meaning of being loyal and when most see someone who is, they attack. How dare I be a loyal and respectful woman? How dare I not conform to what everyone else is selling? How dare I be an entrepreneur running 6 different businesses and know football too? How dare I not be a typical blonde chick who allows herself to be manipulated by misconceptions that guys want me to believe?
If you think I can’t see that you are jealous when you compliment me with an insult, try to humiliate me on line, try to diminish who I am and that what I say has value, then all I can say to you is this:
I will not water myself down to make me more digestible for you. You can choke.
