You are doing the usually stroll down social media lane, and you see a picture of a friend or an acquaintance and not only is it a selfie (we will get to those on another day, I promise) but it may include the following caption: “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase -MLK Jr.”
There is so much wrong with this:
1. MLK Jr. did not sacrifice his life and do the work he did, to be shared on a picture of you at the gym. He worked his whole life, you worked out for 20 min, calm down, that new vein you found on your bicep isn’t as important as the Civil Rights movement! You are not that important, I promise.
2. WTF are you saying! How is your face an inspirational thing to look at. If anything you are discouraging me from doing anything. You are the sole reason I do not have inspiration in my life. How do you live with yourself???
3. Are you trying to tell me your hard work at a bar drinking and dancing with your friends is as important as the actions of Rosa Parks or Ghandi. My response to you comes in the form of a quote from the amazing Rosa Park, “No!” She stood up for all that was wrong and you have the audacity to quote her on your selfie.
4. If you are going to do all of this please double check your work. According to you, our lives are about to be changed with this picture, so make sure it is accurate.The only thing more annoying than the three things above, is you not only posting a selfie with a quote, but you misspell, misapply, and give credit the wrong person.
“Dont never give up” -Mother Teresa
If you are going to provide us with inspirational quotes, don’t put a picture of your abs or your face, put a picture of the person saying them, or some nice scenery to look at. You most certainly are not the poster child for inspirational quotes.
Just stop doing it!
I personally prefer the latter option!
Till next time, be safe and keep hating!
