People that slight other people do so because they feel inferior to them in some way. I have noticed plenty of this when I submerged myself in places like Twitter and Facebook comments. This animosity is contagious and I find myself recoiling to safer places. What I see from successful people is the desire to build and create. Focus on positive endeavours. And surround yourself with like-minded individuals. Writing every day and consuming good, constructive content is therapy. After years of bad habits I needed this.
