Social Simplicity—The Inconvenient Convenience

Imagine a world without Internet or Social Media—what do you imagine? When I think about life without the conveniences of technologies, I think about childhood. This is the last time I can even begin to imagine a world or a life without social platforms or connectivity.

As with any major changes, they all have their benefits just as much as their consequences. When I take a look back at everything, it’s hard not to mention the issues that arisen from Social Media—allowing the public an inside look into your life, firsthand.

Apparently, I’m not the only one who has noticed more of a downside with the invention of internet, Social Media platforms, etc.

How many relationships have been ruined because of Social Media? In recent breaking news, Facebook mogul, Mark Zuckerberg was said to be connection with influencing the 2020 elections.

Social Networkingpreparation for social distancing? After all, these platforms have provided us with means to communicate from a distance long before Covid-19 restrictions.

Let’s use a hypothetical scenario to take a look at the impacts Social Media can have in relationships, our friendships. So, let’s say, your significant other comes across friends requests from your exes—potentially a huge blow-up waiting to happen… Never a good thing!

I’m not the best at hypothetical scenarios—I do much better when speaking truth in reality. Just imagine though, all the unwanted attention that these platforms potentially cause—could easily turn chaotic at any moment. The worst thing you can do in a relationship is constantly bring up the past, or any exes…. well, think of Social Media as a messy ex whose out to get you at all costs… if you aren’t careful!

Social Media & networking is the new addiction. It’s become an unhealthy additive to an already toxic recipe for disaster!

Besides Social Media, there’s these Big Pharma Companies such as Google, Microsoft, Apple, etc. who all have a hand in the social influence.

Honestly, the generation has become so set on technology that it’s the only thing out children know! We will never get ahead of curbing these issues if we don’t start now. However, amidst a global pandemic, we are basically forced to isolate to social media. In many ways, this Pandemic seems to coincidental once you begin weighing the options, facts, and data.

I'm a 30-year-old mother to my 2 beautiful baby girls—and a fiance to my wonderful soulmate, best friend, my other half, and partner for life, my hubby. As someone who constantly over-analyzes most scenarios and can absorb a clear mental image of my surroundings, while still maintaining conversation along with attempting to take on some other task to do—all at the same time... Although I cannot multi-task at everything, I'm able to absorb enough elements of my environment to be aware of what's going on. I can be quite the element of surprise—appearing as if my attention span is uncanny, but I'm far more aware than most would perceive me to be. As a natural-born Empath with the ability to sense the emotions or vibes of those within my distance. I am a firm believer that everyone has a story to tell--they just need someone who's willing to listen to them. I wear my heart-on-my-sleeve, and a smile on my face, putting my best foot forward... always willing to help or hear those in need. I have pursued a path of potential, a place where I can introduce my thoughts, feelings, opinions, support, stories, and so much more! Growing up, my childhood might as well have been a storyline to a book with all the twists, turns, tempers, tainted memories, and stories so unbelievable that most would have a hard time finding it true—it happened and I can assure you it's all true... I have always had so much to say but such a hard time saying it—it's just so much easier to type/write my thoughts and feelings as a way of getting things off my chest. I struggle with self-expression in the verbal form. However, written words can save I have always had this overwhelming urge to pour my heart & soul out creatively and expressively, whether it be poetry, expressive writing, or occasionally, drawing art. If you are interested in reading about real-life scenarios, current and past world events—how they play into today's events, along with politics, religion, socialism, capitalism, cancel-culture, society, addiction—the rawest form of expression in the most open manner.
