Standing Alone……

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

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”

The Facebook Chronicle…….

When we all first signed onto Facebook, we thought it was a great thing? Posting to your wall and sharing with friends and family that we don’t see on a regular basis, we didn’t look deep enough at what Facebook could be, only that it was a good tool to connect in a different way.
Facebook like everything thing before it is a company, they can only operate if they make money, regardless of the free sign on mumbo jumbo, they need to make money to survive, or go belly up and become like dust in the wind.
Facebook employs alot of people, how do they pay these Individuals with a free sign on? the sales department of facebook has to pitch to other companies, to get them to advertise on the site, for all of us to see, there are many different ways for them to pitch their product of facebook to other companies, but the one sure fire method is to do so, on the emotions of us the subscriber, also what we click on and when we click on, gives a clear indication to facebook, what ads to put on each of our walls.
Facebook is a company like all the other companies out there, interested in one thing only and that is the bottom line. You think they really care of who’s feelings they hurt? Or even who we are as an Individual? We all take to Facebook without thinking of any of this, then we proceed to complain, when we find out of things they do with all our posts on our walls, we think that what we put on our walls is private, even when we set our settings? Remember facebook holds all the controls to all the wall”s of facebook, this is how they sell their advertising to other companies and determine which ads to put on what wall’s.
We can change this by either watching what we put on our walls, or just simply taking down our facebook account, now in this society we don’t think of these things, cause it’s all about our status and what other’s think of us? We only show things that makes us strong, to hide our weaknesses, we show things that we think our friends of facebook will only see and we forget that all of the facebook company is watching everything we do, not to mention our Government also taps into as well, to see where they can take advantage of us once again, the way the World Wide Web is set up, once your info is out there, it’s out there for good and those who are computer hackers, will find ways to retrieve it.
Facebook is like all the other companies out there, they are more concerned with the bottom line, than with any of us as Individuals, we the people can change this and take back control of our lives if we want to, but we are more concerned with our status and who we are around other’s, that we have forgotten who we really are as Individuals, if you took a poll of the people on facebook, asked how many of their friends on facebook are true friends? I bet you I would be richer then Mark Zuckerberg (owner of facebook), cause I am betting the percentage is very high, that true friends are few and far between, cause we all want our status greater than it really is. Until we get off our high horse sort of speak, come back to reality and truly be who we are, we will always be controled by the companies and our governments, which will make our Journey of life a lonely one and full of regret, which will cause us to complain more, instead of taking action and doing something about it.

” Facebook is a company that cares of making money, they don’t care of who they hurt to achieve this”

” We are human, complaining is something we learn from others, when we try to be like them instead of being ourselves”
