We Need To Fight To Be Wholesome Online

If the internet just exposes who we are, then we have no one to blame but ourselves.

Often, people blame social media for so many social ills. Comparisons of relationships, careers, and memorable moments. So too is there bullying, extremism, and callousness.

But there is hope if all technology did is expose us. It means that we always had these insecurities and flaws.

It leads to an optimism that we can change.

By putting all our flaws into the light, we are able to change them. By acknowledging our fears, we can face them head on.

Better to know what we are lacking in than to brush them under the rug.

So we should aim to be actively good, and we can be hopeful about it. We work to combat these flaws of ours so that we can all lead good lives. Post about wholesomeness, reason well, and be kind to each other.

By presenting a kind front on the internet, we change who we are.

There is nothing distinct about the internet from our everyday behaviours. Change online behaviour and there is impact on real life behaviour.
