8 Things To Do When You Feel Outraged Online

Internet outrage is a real thing. It happens to thousands of people every day across comment sections, message boards, and social media. Is there a cure for this vicious disease that has claimed so many? The answer is yes. It’s not too late for you. There’s still time to be saved from this consumer of souls. Just follow these simple steps:

1. You’re online and just enjoying your day. Not a worry in the world!

6. Now go try explaining what you’re so upset about to one of your friends. This needs to be a real life friend, not over text or on another message board. You’ll start to notice a confused look upon their face.

7. You just had a realization! I’m upset about something that doesn’t matter at all! Or if it does matter, my internet outrage isn’t helping anyone. Donating or volunteering to a charity might help, but not this.

8. Live your life. If you want, run into the forest and spin in the sunlight, like this lady. You’re free! TC Mark
