When are we, as humans, ever going to stop giving unsolicited advice?
Social media is a wonderful, wonderful thing but, DAMN does it make people feel that they have the RIGHT to give their opinions, thoughts feelings on EVERYTHING?
NEWSFLASH. It really doesn't.
If I post pictures of my freshly dyed hair you can guarantee that someone out there will tell me that my hair is going to fall out, that I am DOING IT WRONG, that I shouldn't dye my hair as much. EXCUSE ME BUT NO.
Ask ANY plus size woman who has every posted a picture of their body on a social media platform and they will tell you that the minute they have posted that picture they will have comments that they are fat, unhealthy, and need to do something to change their ways.
Yeah, can we stop that?
Bottle-feeding mothers are told that breast is best in the supermarket, without knowing the situation of either the mother or the child. Now if that aforementioned mother goes up to someone in the aforementioned supermarket and ASKS for someones opinion, they by all means, CRACK ON, otherwise.
AIN'T NONE OF YOUR GODDAMN BUSINESS.
People tell people they are holding their baby wrong, that they shouldn't wear that clothing because it doesn't flatter them.
NO-ONE ASKED YOU FOR YOUR OPINION.
I don't wear an item of clothing because it "flatters" me, I wear it because it is my body and I will clothe it how I SEE FIT.
You also do not have the RIGHT to question, or give unsolicited advice to celebrities just because they put a picture out there, and I do not give a flying fuck whether you pre-fix it with "Well, this is just my opinion, but" because NO-ONE ASKED.
Opinions are like penises, it is ok to have one, but please, don't shove it down my throat unless I ask.
What do you think? Are you fed up with unsolicited advice? Have you experienced this on social media?
Let me know.
