Trolling: An Addiction to Suffering

Trolling is an addiction to suffering.

It is an attempt to get the last laugh in a war against yourself.

In this way you will always lose.

We try to feed our pain to others in an effort to ease it.

Part of us believes it is finite and if we give away enough it will be gone.

But it will never be gone.

We will always have pain.

But we are only enabling ourselves to become the worst version of ourselves.

We are feeding our own hate and anger which causes us to suffer more.

If we are successful, we continue the circle of emotional violence into another person who then bears our pain along with our own.

But it doesn’t truly ease our own pain, it deepens it.

It feeds it so that we become what we hate, if we have not done so already.
