There's a culture of negativity forming on the fediverse, similar to other platforms. The instinct is to call attention to it and critique it, but that itself is just creating more negativity

I think a better tactic is to make a conscious effort to create and spread more positive content, even simple stuff like the plants you're growing or the meal you're having

@socalledunitedstates You're absolutely right. The best thing about the Fediverse is that you can make it exactly what you want.

@socalledunitedstates the fediverse really needs more self critique as well. we spend all this time critiquing each other, but rarely do i see someone look at themselves and discuss how they could do better
