Social media has it’s pros and cons no different than tv offerings or any other venue of interaction.
Do you ever find yourself being content with your own life and all of a sudden someone or something you see makes you feel less than? Makes you feel like you should be doing something else or, better yet, concerned with your followers, likes and/or comments??
Those distractions are simply there to rob you of your joy, your authentic self.
Don’t let the false pretense that everyone else is having a great time doing something that you are not doing fool you.
I get amazed at how many people have a great need to have companionship only to ignore one another and take selfies to post and interact on social media. They’re not having a great time with their friends because they’re too busy trying to show you how great their life is when, in reality, they’re bored as f*ck with their friends but feel they have to prove something to strangers on social media.
I see these types of interactions daily and wonder if they even know that they’re wasting precious time with pretenses instead of being at their authentic highest self where true joy, peace and happiness lives.
A passionate life is what you’re giving up when trying to play that type of social media game.
Be YOU where true authenticity will shine far greater than pretense. Show all of you, good and bad because, you know what? We’re all broken in some way.
