I said that I was going create a blog post and graphic to accompany a recent thread about how I stay unbothered in the face of neverending fandom drama. And I did!
If for whatever reason you missed the original thread, you should definitely check it out and let it work for you:
Odie's Guide To Ignoring Trolls/Antis And Being Forever Unbothered By Anything They Say
— ODIE || ~REST~🔎 (@sweetbtstea) March 3, 2018
I was so happy to finally share the info in the thread with people because I just feel bad watching people get stirred up every five minutes!
You don’t need to spend your online life constantly fighting with antis/trolls, being anxious and fearful because of someone’s endless fearmongering, or caught up in pointless infighting.
BLOCK, MUTE, AND ADJUST YOUR NOTIFICATIONS!
- Block problematic accounts that constantly cause stress or harass you
- Mute words and comments you don’t care about or are constantly triggering
- Adjust your notifications to take immediate control over what you see day after day.
The more active a role you take in filtering what you’re exposed to every day, the less exposure you have to people or conversations that frequently stress you out.
Need a visual reminder of what to do? No problem! I went and created a handy infographic just for you:
I do want to emphasize that last point —
IT’S JUST NEVER THAT DEEP.
If what you’re constantly reading is REALLY stressing you out, it’s time to take a break until you’re emotionally recovered. It can be a brief break (with some breathing exercises), or a long one. Whatever you need to get over constant exposure to online negativity.
