The internet has a Comments Section, and it’s full of monsters.
If you’re not familiar with the Comments Section, it’s basically a place where people can post their thoughts and feelings about whatever the article is about. And while there are some good comments to be found, more often than not, it’s a breeding ground for trolls, haters, and general negativity.
Here’s why you should avoid the Comments Section like the plague:
1. It’s full of anonymous bullies.
Because people can post anonymously, the Comments Section is full of people who are more than happy to hurl insults and attack anyone who disagrees with them. It’s a place where trolls can thrive, and it’s not uncommon for people to be harassed or even threatened.
2. It’s a echo chamber of negativity.
Because the Comments Section is full of anonymous bullies, it’s also full of negativity. There’s very little positive or constructive discussion to be found, and it’s easy to get sucked into a spiral of negative thinking.
3. It’s a time suck.
Reading the comments on an article can easily eat up hours of your time, and it’s not time well spent. You’re better off spending your time on something that’s actually going to make you happy and productive.
4. It’s bad for your mental health.
Research has shown that reading negative comments can actually be bad for your mental health. It can increase anxiety and depression, and it can even lead to physical health problems.
5. It’s a waste of time.
Seriously, there are better ways to spend your time than reading the Comments Section. There are books to be read, movies to be watched, and people to be talked to. Life is too short to waste on the negativity of the internet.
