Within this society of today and with the all the social media platforms, most may think having the most followers might make you better than the rest? Just because you get a lot of likes of your status on a platform really does not mean, others care who you are, what people tend to forget is, you are posting a status from behind the screen of your device and it is very easy to portray strength or be someone you really are not. Since the creation of Facebook and Twitter, we all have totally forgotten of who we are, instead we post a status that makes us out to be better than the rest, we hide behind our devices and use them as a crutch, to keep from simply being ourselves, only because for some reason, we totally think we have to put forth this fake identity in order for others to accept us.
Nobody knows how to stand on their own anymore, as all the real ” Social” interaction is gone from this society today. Without real interaction, we simply can not heal in a healthy way from what has hurt us with real pain. Somewhere along this journey through life we all have been hurt with real pain, whether that hurt comes self inflicted, or whether that hurt comes from another around us? The pain still hurts, but we can not truly heal on our own and yes, we do need interaction of others to help us heal in a healthy way.
Now don’t get me wrong The social media platforms can be good when used in the proper way, family members who move away we can still stay in touch like they are still right here with us. Friends we have found in school or college and when those days end, we all go our separate ways, well now we can still stay in touch, for one day when we plan a get together or reunite, to catch up and keep the friendship alive. Throughout this society and with all the drama already within it, these platforms just simply bring even more drama, with some of the ridiculous posts some may place on their status? Most of the posts out their do not even come close to being true, as we have lost that part of the journey and we do not know how to be true, not just to ourselves, but to one another.
What’s in a status you say? Really nothing as being in front of the one you want to chat with, goes a heck of a longer way than what any status can say. Respect and Dignity are gone from this society only because we do not truly interact with each other face to face, It is the true face to face interactions that makes us better and stronger moving forward, between the fake interactions and the posting to a status, we have created this political correctness, which now we become easily offended and the thick skin we used to have is gone, leaving behind all the scars from what brings us pain and hurt, so now we all have become weak and damaged and will do whatever we can to protect ourselves, like hiding deep within just to minimize the pain.
Within today’s society and all the so called friends on our platforms, we really have become a lonely society, lonely because some do not have that one true friend to confide in and vice versa, when the going gets tough, when we talk deeply of ourselves that is when the true healing starts and within all these platforms and the hiding behind a device, this keeps us from being as open as we should, so we than can truly heal ourselves from all the pain and hurt. In order to be stronger and better as we walk our paths through this journey of life, we always need that face to face interaction, so we than can heal as healthy as we can from whatever keeps us down, hiding behind a device teaches us nothing, the only thing the device may teach us is, make our typing skills that much better, but other than that it really does nothing for us. We can’t even walk within society today without the device in our hands, nor even drive our cars with the device glued to our ears, when we walk down the street we don’t even know where we are going half the time, as we walk with our heads down within our device, instead of looking at where we are going, some have become so addicted to the device, that they can not put it down even for a second. The sad part is, we can change this if we wanted, but these devices have become so convenient, that we do not want to change anything and just keep walking our paths through this journey of life, the way we want so we can keep this fake reality in front of us, so we can hide behind it to keep the pain and hurt hidden deep within ourselves.
” Standing alone comes true peace and strength, without hiding behind any device”
” When you stand tall on your own two feet with no crutch, you will always move forward better and stronger”
” A status is nothing really except a bunch of make believe on a platform”
” Social media can be a good thing when used correctly, but like everything touched by man, it has become old and worn out as also we have become the same way”
