One thing that never ceases to amaze me is the mob mentality people adopt when they're too scared (or stupid) to form their own opinion. I haven't always been exempt from this, but after my share of social crucifixions I'd like to think I've learned a thing or two about going with (or against) the crowd. Don't fucking do it. It's so bullshit and unoriginal. I'd like to think people outgrow it, but the truth is it's so much easier (and much more socially acceptable) to be a faceless shit talker based on second (or tenth) hand information. Maybe it draws attention away from your own short-comings...maybe it feels really good to just tear someone apart. But there's humans and hearts at the center of it. Humans and hearts who have made mistakes, or chosen to go against your grain. Instead, spend your time on the things you love. Find a hobby. Get a paper route. Just keep your uneducated (or unappreciated) opinion to yourself.
