I usually dont write my personal thoughts and feelings on the web. I feel like people forget the emotion behind a word when they read the text. You know the old saying -read between the lines..well that just doesnt happen anymore. And because of this, we’ve created this virtual world of self riteousness; somewhere where we dont have to fit in, but a place we can all rule on our own. Through photos, videos and blogs, many individuals on the web have painted us all a pretty mirage. Something we cant physically grasp, but something that illuminates the blind eye. It’s all repetitive, and uninspiring.
I wake up every morning, and the first thing I always find myself doing, is grabbing my tablet to check all the social media apps I possibly can. This never ends with me feeling great about myself. I feel a disconnect from others around me…like I’m not quite getting what I want out of life. And then comes the irrational thinking that can only put one into a nihilistic mindset. I often ask myself, what is the point? We are ‘connected’ to each other so easily, but I cant help but feel a sense of isolation. Isolated and unmotivated by the materialism I face on the daily. Maybe I’m old fashioned.. I was always raised with the concept of privacy in mind and the appreciation for the smaller things in life that really matter.
Am I being closed minded?
I know the web isn’t for every personality type, but how do you adjust to a world that is becoming the web?
Send me a response, whether you agree with me or disagree, I’d love to read it!
