Social Media such a great tool, but also a not so great tool. I love the way I can follow groups and people I like. I have groups that are great for learning about new procedures and products. I can see what my friends that don’t live near me are up to. Its great for events going on in the area, and for business and to keep up with my pageants.
But there is the other side, the side I don’t like. Where people pretend their live is so much better than it is, to impress people who don’t matter. Where people allow strangers to make them feel bad about themselves due to comments they see, comments that don’t matter because you can only be effected by what you allow to effect you. Where some post things directed at someone, but instead of just saying it we let them thing whatever. Where some allow someone who they haven’t meet come between them and their spouse, because of some ego boost they got from that person. Where some pretend to be super busy and doing so much, when if that was the truth, they wouldn’t have time to post 20 times a day. Where some people forget to wear clothes, in EVERY picture, and wait to see the comments and likes that they get, to help boost their self esteem; and where we fall into this trap giving them the attention that makes them continue. Where some pretend to be SO religious and SO Godly, while they sit and scroll and judge others. And still even some say hurtful things hiding behind a screen, but if you saw them in person they would just smile to your face and never repeat what they said. And still others have nothing in the world good going on, everything sucks and the sky is always falling, they can’t even be thankful for waking up this morning.
We have all either seen these or we are one of these. But when did we stop being real, when did we decide that impressing others is so important. But we all have our things that we do, and we all including myself will always do those things. So I will continue to have my love/hate relationship with social media. I will continue to take long breaks and then go back. I will post random things mainly about coffee, cheesecake, and guys. And work on just over looking all the crazy stuff, because when you get down to it, there is life outside of social media and personal I like that life so much better.
