I’ve seen this happen to other YouTubers across the web and I will not have it happen to me. I’m a strong person and I will stand up for my opinions and views.
I’m now in a position where I am being made out to be some horrible person, who deserves hate and bombardment - from people who do not even know anything about me. People who have picked up on rumours/reblogs or seen things, but know nothing of what is exactly going on.
I’ve done nothing wrong. I responded with a contrasting opinion to part of a video that someone else posted. Simple as that. It just happens that the person I disagreed with, has hundreds of thousands of fans.
Fans and others, learn when you are hurting and hating for no reason. Discussions are good and normal but arguing and excessive hurting is not. Learn when you cross the line. Even if you respect and follow someone, that doesn’t give you the right to hate in order to make sure that they are right.
I don’t always agree with Carrie’s opinions, or those of the London YT “Community”, but I have respect for them all. I get daily comments and messages from people who disagree with my views on life or have opposing opinions - it’s normal! We are all different people with different opinions, lives and we do not have to agree all the time.
Continue discussing and speaking out for yourselves, but please think…
Totally agree! XXX
So, today on Tumblr I saw a blog about my latest video based on Success Vs Fame. Some people agreed and some people didn’t and this particular blog I saw passionately disagreed and raised a few valid points. I decided to reply via a reblog as said person didn’t have an ask box and I knew my reply would be lengthy as I felt I had a few points to explain further about the video that may have been crossed somewhere along the way. However, in what I thought was a discussion based on a perfectly normal and incredibly valid disagreement, the internet happened. Other individuals got unnecessarily hateful and feelings were hurt.
Now, I can’t control other people. I’m not responsible for others being nasty nor am I responsible for others being nice. All I can do is try and “lead by example” (if that doesn’t sound to pretentious)? All I can do is try and be as nice as I can, talk out disagreements if there ever are any rather than hurling any abuse and try and mend things after damage has been caused whether it’s been by myself unintentionally (because, as we also often forget, everybody makes mistakes!) or by others like those unnecessary mean comments made today.
So on that note, here is something I’d like you all to take a look at and read in detail if you will. Rebecca said she wished that blog posts she wrote on Trichotillomania got as many as the one I reblogged did. SO, here’s something I learned about today that I’ve never known about before and I genuinely find it really interesting and will be researching further. I won’t tell you about it here because frankly, I don’t know enough and you’re better off reading it straight from Rebecca.
Sometimes the internet gets sucky but I hope this reduces the suck count by at least 100 points!
