Why do you commit to a heated discussion in the comment section of a social media post?
If it is to share your opinion, display your wit, dispense your humour, a better way is to create your own post, article, story, and share it with the world.
If it is to change minds, a better way is to engage in a one to one conversaton, and be prepared to be changed as well.
If it is to spend some free time, a better way is to read a book, go for a walk, watch a movie, reach out to a friend, play with your kids, or really anything else.
If it is to avoid work you don’t want to do, a better way is to find work you actually want to do.
There’s really no reason why one should commit to a heated discussion in the comment section of a social post. Yet those happen every day. And people lose their energy, focus, and minds to this activity.
Get back control.
