I know it’s been a while since I last posted, as I’ve been struck down with a bug. We all need time every now and then to recharge and get well, well this was my time.
As days progress I think about my life as a child, what I did for entertainment, how we played and what resources we had, and then it dawned on me, that we didn’t have all this social media. We had toys and imagination. Something I find is missing in a 21st century child. I myself have had enough of social media, the endless scrolling through nothing and repeated posts, the addiction to picking up your phone or tablet, for me this has to change .
Now I understand word press can be categorised into maybe a small proportion of social media, I feel it’s more of an outlet. Anyway my point. …
I’ve taken a break from social media
I said it out loud and I love it.
Every day I spend time on mainly facebook, I wake up and I check to see what’s been happening through the night, the answer ……..is nothing.
I checked to see if my friends had posted. ……..another subliminal insult.
I look and see, the constant reassurance and constant digs of ‘I’m better than you’.
Now I get told not to let it affect me, but the reality is that it does. I have no idea why, nor do I wish to delve into the reasons for that, but I just can’t keep being held prisoner to the social media platform …..
Today I am free.
Have a blessed evening
