It’s not worth losing my sanity over the opinion of millions of strangers- Juliet Ibrahim on social media trolls


Actress Juliet Ibrahim has stated that she has learnt not to allow the opinions of people on social media get to her.

According to her, she understand that not everyone will like you, hence she’s always prepared for all the negativity that may come her way.

Speaking in an interview with Showbiz, the actress stressed on how social media has driven a lot of people into depressed states.

“It’s not worth losing my sanity over the opinion of millions of strangers. I have learnt not to pay attention to negativity and rather make good use of the block button.

“Social media drives people with weak minds into depression, mental breakdown, blind competition and all sorts of negativity.

“I don’t care about negativity. Not everyone will like you. I certainly do not entertain bullies and trolls so I’ll usually delete a comment if it doesn’t add any value to my life,” she added.

Adding how she handles bullies on social media, Juliet stated that “If a troll or bully decides to continue bothering me, I simply block the person. It’s really not that deep. When you’re too busy focusing on better and important things, petty things barely get your attention.

“I have been through a lot in my life. I am a survivor and a fighter. I know what it’s like to come from nowhere and be somebody in the society. I am focused on the prize and the ultimate goal in my life.

“Certainly, false news or negativity cannot get to the point of breaking me down. Yes, there’s been a moment when I started my career where I was a bit more fragile but with experience and growing up, I really don’t care,” she added.

Juliet however cautioned people with “weak minds” to stay away from social media.

“please stay off social media if you have a weak heart and mind.Spend time reading books, associate yourself with like-minded people, go out and associate with real people. Remember that social media is a fake world, people only show you what they want you to see. It’s all controlled online content.”
