    So the AITA subreddit on Reddit promotes destructive behavior.

    I know you guys hate Reddit and all and me too but there's this one Subreddit that caught my eye. It's AITA and the amount of people on there that would go full on no contact with their family/friends and/or plan a revenge plot out of a movie over a mild insult/slight is insane.

    I know there's situations that are straws that break the camel's back and there's genuinely toxic family and friends that aren't needed in your life but still resorting to cutting people out of your life over drama that can be talked out by both parties and going full nuclear over a dumb insult is way over the top. These people are treating relationships like disposable plastic bags. Once there's a hole or tear in it, it has to be thrown out for good. It's not a healthy mindset to have and certainly it can make your life miserable in the long term. Imagine not having friends and your family being there for you at your lowest point or them to congratulate you on your successes all because in the past you burned your bridges with them over something that's not worth destroying an bond/relationship over.

    The Ego and Pride are such dangerous things and it can improve or destroy your life.

    TL; DR; People in general are too fucking stupid for their own good.

    One thing that modern society and Internet technology have done is totally transform human relationships.

    In the past, relationships were based upon history. Your family consisted of your parents and siblings. Your friends (and enemies, I guess) consisted of the other kids in your neighborhood. These relationships were pretty durable. One of your friends could do something off the wall and you can just shrug it off. "Eh, that's Pete for you right there, he does something crazy everyone once in a while, nbd, he'll be back. /OldManYellsAtCloud

    Today, relationships are based on commonality. You have the same hobbies or you abide by the same politics or whatever. Odds are good you were raised by a single mom with siblings from different fathers. The kids in your neighborhood were here today, gone tomorrow, because single moms move around a lot. They're not famous for stability. These relationships are flimsy af. The instant somebody breaks away from what you consider normative behavior, they're shunned. When one of your friends does something off the wall now, he's DEAD to you. "Fuck Pete, can't believe he voted for Trump, never knew he was a NAZI!"

    When normal people see behavior like you describe, they're rightly confused and repulsed by it. Hate to say it tho, but this could be the new normal.
