For the past two days, I got involved in a Facebook group discussion about blogging and giveaway postings. As for me, I believe that participating in such discussion is a healthy way of imparting knowledge and learning as well. But after a few exchanges, what I thought was a healthy discussion turned a little soar because of some sarcastic remarks. And because of that, I decided to stop commenting and move away.
Not that I was wrong and they were right (vice versa) but because there were too much negativism already. The aura of the discussion turned to an avenue of mockery. My mom once told me, “daghan estorya, daghan sayop (too much talk, too many mistake).” So if you continue a discussion that is becoming unhealthy, you might say something that you might regret because you have said it out of hate or ego.
So for short, my two days dragged me to the pits! Because whenever I am surrounded with negative energies, I can’t help it but feel physically down. I felt tired and always want to sleep. Therefore for two days, I was in front of the computer, working yes but physically drained to bits. I felt that I was not being a Productive Pinoy.
Anyway, the question is... shall I continue participating with such discussions in the near future? Well, all I can say for now is yes… as long as I am talking to people who are open-minded willing to take in and out without being cynical. But not all days are the same, I might evolved to someone who throws stone instead of bread. LOL!!
