Why do some people refuse to face reality, or hide from the truth or have some sort of hidden agenda?
I am getting to the point where I think I can no longer survive on Newsvine, or maybe do not want to.
I realized that hardly anybody believes anyone like me [at least not on the Vine]; that I am a real person, with real, true and honest intentions. It seems like everyone has an “agenda” and because they do, they think everyone else does too. Now I understand why I am asked several times what the purpose of what I write is.
I don't have a set purpose, but what I write is true [to me] and my honest opinion on how I view things and things I believe in or have questions about. This is my real name, real picture and when I joined Newsvine, I thought this was what everyone did because I was reading something on msnbc and there was a link that said: “join to discuss this topic on Newsvine”. I didn’t know that people created different names they may hide behind to spread their nastiness and expose what they truly think or who they really are. For protection maybe for some… or simply cowardice from others or most because they know they could never make themselves say anything like what they do in the real world. Then they hate people like me that are not afraid of speaking my mind and doing it openly, with no fear.
After one my last articles, I don’t think I should have exposed myself so much. People go to the lengths of saying you should be dead for the things you say, etc. Should I fear for my life? Should I be scared that people will stalk me and kill me? Why is it that I cannot talk about things I have no full knowledge of and ask questions about it without being attacked? Why is it that my opinion drives some people so crazy that they openly lose their minds to the point of writing the most horrible things?!
Well, some people should just simply accept the fact that everyone is entitled to their opinion. This is why I started writing on Newsvine. Because I have my own opinion and I have questions, many questions about a lot of things I don’t understand; others have their opinion too that are similar to mine or the complete opposite and we can discuss about it, agree or disagree, period!
I’m not sure I want to write on here anymore…all the drama, the negativity, the narrow mindedness, lack of respect…is it worth it?!
Why do people feel the need to have a hidden agenda?
I love writing and discussing those issues where people need to stop and think for a minute. It’s a brain exercise kinda thing. But the moment that people with their hidden agenda take over, it’s completely ruined.
The lack of respect with others is one of the things I will never tolerate. One can argue, disagree or have a smart discussion by sharing their knowledge without getting personal; without all the rudeness but it’s impossible to argue with ignorant people. It’s like that old saying:
“Never argue with an idiot, they drag you down to their level and beat you with experience”
The reality of it is, some people just cannot handle or acknowledge losing an argument therefore they will try to insult you with everything else they can come up with.
This is one of the main reasons I do not believe in racism and discrimination! When people feel belittled, or like they are trapped, they will start looking for the things people are intimidated by to use against them. It always comes from those people with the weakest minds. And because one should know they are better than that, one should never even pay attention to them!
