For today’s random act of kindness, I took to
the streets tumblr! I know, based on the people that I follow on there, that there is a lot of sadness and a lot of loneliness on that website. When it comes to a lot of the teenagers who frequent that website, a lot of them are really struggling with a lot of really heavy stuff. I don’t know if it’s due to self-esteem issues, mental illness, or what, but there is a lot of just sadness and self harm messages floating all over that website.
So, I went to the insecure tag on tumblr, and I sent a bunch of people on there (anonymously) how beautiful and perfect and loved they are, also that they are more than good enough. I did that until I wasn’t allowed to “ask” questions for an hour (which I thought was weird). Then, when I came home from school, I went to the depressed tag on tumblr, and I did the same thing until it told me I couldn’t send any more messages anymore.
I don’t know if the people I messaged have seen my messages yet, I don’t know if they will look at it, or post it, or ignore it. I just hope that it makes them feel a little less alone. A little less insecure, and a little less sad. I know that no message like that is going to be a cure-all for all personal issues that a person could be having, but I just hope that I helped even a little bit.
