It’s A Real Thing
Social Media Self Defence – Some tips to help
Social Media Self Defence – Twitter & Facebook are NOT REAL Life
We are in a strange time and place where humans are struggling to adapt to the current technological landscape.
BAD NEWS is, it’s going to get worse before it gets better.
GOOD NEWS is, you can train to keep the wolves and keyboard warriors at bay.
So have you ever commented on a post and before you know it, your being attacked and abused?
The simplest comment can be met with insults and anger. If you haven’t then can you please send me your secret.
Social Media Self Defence – The signs
The first signs are usually people respond with something personal. This is your warning sign, it’s all about the ideas. Let’s say we’re discussing a political idea or a training technique, it doesn’t really matter.
The thing we’re discussing is an idea, we are not our idea’s, ideas can change. As soon as someone criticises you and not your idea the conversation is going well off track.
Simply respond with “Can we leave me out of this, i’d like to stick with the subject and idea”
I have been in debates where people have gone completely insane and insulting. I keep repeating this until they get it and we continue or i leave the conversation.
Social Media Self Defence – Go ahead punk, change my mind
I always like to squeeze in the invitation, go ahead punk, change my mind. I mean it, if your idea is better than my own then I’m shifting my paradigm over, that’s what I live for. I’m not here to prove I’m right, so prove my idea wrong or weak.
Imagine a world where politicians acted like that. Instead of turning up to argue and prove a point. Turn up to get to the best outcome, so in the end, we all win. We can dream eh!

No, you’d think, fruitcake stay out of my life in off for a coffee. Social media is the same, random strangers with random profile pics. Saying random things often for no reason than to antagonise others.
There possibly also 12 years old and have nothing better to do than bait people much much wiser.
Social Media Self Defence – Stay Free
Don’t get caught up in it. It’s not real and while in the moment it can feel like a rollercoaster of emotions. Its simply a keyboard and a screen, turn it off.
No one, and I mean no one will care or remember a few hours later.
He who controls emotions controls the fight
