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.
