Why do some people only respond to negative social posts?

be-nice

I am somewhat addicted to social websites like Facebook and Twitter. I started using social websites back in the day when MySpace was popular because friends and family were on there and it was the only way that I could see or talk to them. I am not a phone person and I don’t travel, so I very rarely see friends and family, so social media is basically the only way I’m ever going to be able to communicate with anyone.

The one thing that bothers me about Facebook and Twitter is that you can say 1000 positive things and get little to no response, but the minute you post something political, everyone comes out of the wood work to criticize you for having an opinion. Why is it that other people’s opinions are more important than mine and they have to belittle me? I see people posting political posts and if I don’t like their opinion I just ignore it and keep scrolling. The reason is because EVERYONE is entitled to their own opinion and I respect that. So why is it that I’m not entitled to mine?

My mother told me that if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all. It seems like I am the only person who remembered that.

Now let’s see how many people respond to this or belittle me for having an opinion, that is if anyone even reads it. I blog and blog and blog and it doesn’t seem like anyone is paying attention. Nobody ever responds. Why am I paying for this website if nobody is even looking at it? I pay $10 a month for hosting and another $12 a year for the domain and it doesn’t seem like anyone even cares about my website or my blog. So why the hell do I even bother?
