Blogging has always been a strange place.
It’s supportive yet horrifying.
Like a hug from your mum whilst being jabbed in the ribs with a fork.
It can be lonely, but it can also be a place where you never feel alone.
It is a total paradox.
I took a break from writing my thoughts. Mainly because I needed to free some space up in my tiny tiny brain.
But since returning, it has felt different.
Being away from it all, you can look back on it and see the cliques. The people who like to shout the loudest but back down as to not danger themselves with being someone who stirs.
It is super easy to pick them out when you stay silent.
Blogging has always been a place for different opinions. Whether it’s how you raise you children, the food you feed them and the way you school them, the difference is what makes it interesting.
It makes it a place to learn.
But then when you try and write about something that has been on your mind, something that sounds so ridiculous, but really could happen, you are wrong.
Because suddenly having an opinion makes it okay for people to poke, prod, belittle and throw snide insults.
I can read something, be offended, give my own opinion and move on. Because we are all different.
The world would be incredibly boring if we all agreed.
Having a difference of views and opinions doesn’t make a person bad, it doesn’t change them. It just makes them more interesting.
So it looks like blogging has become a place you can have an opinion and openly talk about it, but only if everyone else agrees.
You are by no means allowed to be honest, look at real facts or spark a debate.
Because someone might not agree. And that’s bad.
It’s like I have gone back to the playground and I will tell on you if you dont agree!
WHERE HAVE ALL THE ADULTS GONE?!
