If in the past you haven’t taken an extra 0.2233234 of a second to switch off a light or the TV or throw your rubbish into the right bin, think. Try and change. This place is all we’ve got and she’s sick.
What makes you happy?
Whether your definition of happiness is watching your favourite movie, listening to a nice song or playing with a friend or pet, you should always strive to do things that make you happy. Life is not worth dwelling on unhappiness, and although the term YOLO has lost most of its meaning due to teenagers using it to justify their stupid actions, it is true. You do only live once, so why waste it being sad?
According to research by the Oxford University, a staggering 30% of teenagers from 12 to 17 feel sad or hopeless every day. Good ways to improve your mood are:
- Being around someone or something you love
- Playing a game
- Looking at funny pictures
- Reading an interesting book
- Singing, don’t worry if you aren’t ‘good’
- Exercise (exercise releases happy endorphins)
- Playing with an animal
- Sit outside and watch the world
So many teenagers these days are stressed and feel anxiety because they do not do enough activities that make them happy. No matter how busy your day is, always find at least ten minutes of you time to do whatever makes you smile. Life isn’t going to be easy if you make it hard. Do what you like to do. Eat that cake, if you want to. Write a book. Go out into the world and meet new people. Because at the end of your life, will it matter if you were the size of a small twig? If you fit with the popular group because you weren’t being yourself? No. What will matter is that you look back on your life and are content.
Hi darling readers,
I know that we usually post all writing with a picture, but I’m not doing that right now because I want to be as serious as possible. I think we all can agree that tumblr is a place for us to express ourselves, and to find people that we can relate to all over the world. Many of our parents are too old to have experienced how amazing it really is to talk to people from all over.
There is a trend on this site that really bothers me, though. For some reason, people seem to think that sending anonymous hate is appropriate. I’m not sure if there will ever be consequences for sending anon hate, and of course we all know there are ways to prevent it. That, however, is not what I’m writing this about.
If any Eddie readers have ever sent hate, then all I’m doing right now is asking you to reconsider in the future. Not only is it childish, it is also a waste of time and potentially dangerous. For example: Every country has different laws. In the United States, telling a person to “just die already” or to “pull the trigger” could lead to time in prison if that person does, in fact, commit suicide.
Now, I’m not going to pretend that all anonymous messages are as drastic as my previous example. Sometimes, people may want to say something mean because it’s funny to them, or they’re bored, and it doesn’t seem like a big deal. Maybe it isn’t for some people. The point I hope to get across is that it is impossible to know everything an individual is struggling with. They could have something as serious as a mental illness. Alternatively, they could have just had a really bad day. When someone logs on to tumblr, the last thing they want to see is an anonymous message calling them ugly or fat. Not only does it show cowardice on the behalf of the anon; it also shows a lack of regard for others.
If you still don’t think this is important, then I urge you to think of someone in your life that you’re closest to. It could be your sister, your best guy friend, your boyfriend, or an older family member. How would you feel if you came home from school one day, and you found out that they committed suicide? How would you feel if you knew they had to fight at every meal to be able to eat, or fight after to keep it down? What if you walked in on them self-harming? Okay, now what would change about your attitude if you learned that they were pushed to do these things because a faceless person on the internet sent them something on a bad day?
I know that we’re all human. Sometimes we don’t like who we are, so we lash out on other people. Sometimes, we take our anger out on the wrong person. I really hope that none of you lovely readers have ever resorted to anonymous insults as a means to feel better. If you have, though, then I am imploring to learn from your mistakes and become a better person.
The anon feature is helpful. Personally, I have talked two people down from committing suicide since joining tumblr when I was 14. More recently, I have been able to (along with the help of Liz and formerly, Emily) be someone that people can vent about their problems to and receive a non-judgmental response on askeddie. I think we all can remember at least one time when it felt like we had no one to talk to. Being able to send anonymous messages for this reason alone is one of the many reasons those who send hate negatively impact everyone. It is absolutely infuriating to know that someone may come to my ask, for reference, and not have a place to anonymously vent because I’m too afraid that someone may decide to send me something hateful one day. That shouldn’t be what tumblr is about.
All eddiemag readers know that this blog is all about being positive. Words can go a long way. I hope this has given at least one person something to think about. You never know how much of an impact you can have on another person… and that’s just it! At the end of the day, we’re all human. Is the world going to feel like a better place if we waste time trying to constantly tear one another down?
