Bullying is a lost form of art. Contrary to popular belief, it has many benefits. Having trouble losing weight? Always being addressed as “lard ass” at social gatherings would have been enough to make Ashley Graham try the Atkins diet at least once. But since society likes to label her as a big beautiful woman, she eats the attention up like it was wrapped in bacon and dipped in chocolate. Bullying also works when people do dumb things. Like pull ups from the sides of skyscrapers, or marry Justin Bieber. I’d argue that bullying the former is beating a dead horse, or Chinese parkour enthusiast to be specific, but Hailey we can still save.
Hailey is revealing that Instagram trolls give her terrible anxiety."Being off of Instagram is the best thing ever," Hailey wrote on her Instagram Story.
"Whenever I take breaks from it I feel so much better," she shares. "So much happy as a person..."
"The second I come back on," Hailey continues. "I get immediate anxiety." "I get sad and I get worked up," Hailey shares.
"It’s hard to focus on your well-being and mental health," Hailey begins.
She continues: "when each time you open Instagram someone is tearing apart your job, or your relationship." Hailey says that critics target her job, her marriage, "or essentially any of the things in your life that are positive."
"I just don’t believe we’re called to live a life where we’re so easily caught up in strangers opinions on something they have NOTHING to do with," she writes. "We need to take a step back," Hailey suggests. "And realize we need to express more love and encouragement to one another." Hailey wishes that people would be kind "instead of consistently tearing people down and judging."
"And I won't let people make me feel like I'm doing something wrong by enjoying my life and being happy," Hailey asserts.
I’m genuinely exhausted always hearing sob stories from thin-skinned celebrities and their horrible experiences on social media. The internet gives you anxiety, great. You have more than enough money to legally or illegally medicate yourself to the point you don’t care anymore. I, on the other hand, can’t afford the price per bully-proof Xanax pill without going broke. Thus creating more anxiety. It’s a vicious circle for the rest of us not being paid millions to prance around while looking pretty. So suck it up, princess.
