The stuff I know could shake the world
And opinions roll from me like marbles from
The hands of grubby playground kids.
I’ll let you in on the secrets that I know
And in the process I will crush some souls,
Doesn’t matter though because
I’ll never meet the people talked about.
I have become painfully aware of this ‘spilling the tea’ movement on platforms like YouTube. It feels like the only way to gain traction on the internet is to be horrible to someone.
The people who make these videos can really attack people that they don’t know at all and it feels like, if you’re famous, you’re fair game for most of these people.
The internet has the power to be so helpful and positive but it has just twisted into something quite nightmarish. I do wonder how some of these famous people cope with some of the attacks they get online? I know for certain that I would need to curl up in a ball and cry. Perhaps we should think how we would feel a little more often?

The devolution of man is now the norm
We are sinking to new lows all the time.
I too abhor this movement to ‘do down’ everyone. Is it rooted in jealousy? We would say that if it was done at the village well.
I think a lot of it is down to jealousy. Everyone wants ‘stuff’ and if someone has got more it seems to make it ok to go for the jugular.
You’re right. Personally, I don’t understand it. But then I’ve never been a ‘stuff’ person.
It’s heartbreaking that tearing others apart, judgements and cruelty is what feeds the frenzy…
I don’t understand what people get out of it. I don’t feel nice when I say something bad about someone and yet some people do it all day every day.
Hurt people hurt. There is a lot of truth in that saying.
This is exactly why I try to keep politics to a minimum on my social media.
I know, it would be ok if people weren’t so bloody angry!
