I have something on my mind and have to express it…

I recently started playing a game online called Sorority Life.

I thought it would be fun to collect outfits, accessories and other types of glamor. You know, hang out with girls and do girlie things.

The experience didn’t turn out quite like I expected, however.

Although there ARE some really nice girls…one of the most popular girls became very nasty to me for no reason. She called me horrible names, accused me falsely and pretty much controlled the whole situation, blocking me from playing the game.

She hurt me and I really don’t enjoy playing the game anymore. That doesn’t make me weak, it makes me human.

Think about your actions online, folks. There are real people on the other side of your monitor.

In saying this, there is something that I want you to know.

I am not perfect nor will I ever be. I am not better than anyone else. I make mistakes but I strive to improve.

I’m not mean, nor do I want to be. I walk in the light not darkness. I don’t like to hurt people’s feelings or make them feel bad about themselves. I don’t want to take away somebody’s enjoyment of playing a game in the name of being a bitch. I don’t want to belittle or single somebody out making them feel unworthy.

It doesn’t make me happy to crush somebody’s self esteem. I gain nothing from that.

I want to be kind, build you up and make you feel good about yourself. I want to congratulate you and celebrate in your successes. I want to inspire. I want to make a difference in your life. I want to entertain and make you burst into uncontrollable laughter.

If I am popular I want you to like me because I am a true friend and you respect me, not because you feel intimidated by the things I do.

If I choose you as a friend it’s because I see something exceptional.

If popularity means I have to be wicked then let me be unknown.

Maybe this is a life lesson for me. Perhaps there are some games in life I really shouldn’t play.
