I still wonder… what do people potentially gain or benefit from being involved in such drama online? Why not go use the time you’re wasting and do something productive and useful instead? Why not help each other out instead of fighting and tearing each other down?
I just don’t get it? lol. The best thing to do is to avoid drama at all costs, by not even acknowledging it and avoid people who start drama or gossip. Not get involved in it.
Surround yourself with people who are positive and productive.
Surround yourself with people who want to move forward.
Not with people who hold you down with negativity and useless drama, that keep you backward.
We are all humans… we should have a level of respect for each other on that basis alone. If you don’t like someone, just don’t acknowledge them or their words. Avoid toxic people. Don’t start some lame drama for the world to see. It’s simply not worth it. It is also very unhealthy… and it can even lead to forms of cyberbullying that can be dangerous, trust me. Don’t underestimate it.
Also, the fact that people are suggesting for a separate section to be made for Art Groups due to this nonsense and annoyance is an embarrassment in itself and a shame. We should be a community of positivity. If that wasn’t a heads-up, then I don’t know what is.
Drama is especially very harmful if worsened. It’s best to avoid it at all costs. I always mute threads with drama. I don’t want to see it nor be associated with it. Art groups have essentially become taboo now; oversaturated, tainted in bad light and plagued with drama since the new forums opened up.
And rightfully so. It’s sad.
Stop fighting each other and help raise each other up. We are a community for god’s sake. Drama helps NO ONE. If people in art groups want to change, then they must realize the damage they are doing to not only the community but to themselves. Put the time and energy you invest into drama into something more productive and useful, whether for yourself or someone else instead of wasting it… geez.
