React or Respond

React or Respond

Do you react or respond to things?

Modern life has changed our primal instincts.

Stimuli we used to choose to or not to respond to, now get a reaction out of us.

Someone posts something bad online, and we react with being hurt, letters to the editor and so on.

A reaction is involuntary, and a response is voluntary.

It makes more sense to react to the things that are a direct threat to us, and not respond to those that aren’t.
