Adaeze I want to hug you for this article!! Recently I've been feeling anxious about exactly what you describe. Things I see and hear about on social media and via my 'real life' friend network has made me feel like screaming into a mirror! Your article really soothed me because you have so clearly, succinctly and powerfully relayed something that I haven't been able to express myself. So, thank you! Excellently put. (PS. Have you read 'So You've Been Publicly Shamed' by Jon Ronson? It's along the same lines and very interesting.)
