I will be unfollowing blogs who post too many negative things. I’ve noticed throughout tumblr that a common theme is “I like to stay inside 24/7” and “Never get off the computer” and “Tumblr is my only life”. Then those posts have like 500,000 notes on them. I feel like the tumblr society is toxic to be flooding my mind with negative suggestions down my news feed. In my spare time I study psychology, particularly Hypnosis. The power of suggestion is very powerful and it is important to cut down on negative influences.
Now people say that tumblr is a supportive place for people with these problems. But I see more posts per day about people saying “wow nobody likes me” and “bad self esteem blah blah blah” Not only will these suggestions rub off on other people and cause them to think negative thougths, but saying things like this will only further the problem. Basically, from what I’ve seen and heard, tumblr is support group who instead of offering ways to cope with the problems people face in their lives, they say “wow look at all the other people who have the same problems as me; a literal internet addiction and low self esteem, this must be okay!” and then the problem doesn’t get solved. Instead, a better thing to post is positive, supportive things, to foster healthy lifestyle changes.
Also stupid people annoy me to no end. Examples on this subreddit:
