Checking Out

You know what? I’m going to take a break from social media for a while. Not Pinterest though…you can learn things there. I’m just tired I guess. I’m tired of seeing everyone’s drama played out before the world. I’m tired of hearing everyone’s opinions about politics, religion, and child rearing. I’ve grown more and more cynical as each day passes.

I firmly believe that social media and, in large part the internet, has ruined more lives than it has helped. I’ve enjoyed reconnecting with long lost friends and seeing pictures of my family’s new babies, etc. What I haven’t enjoyed is hearing about my friends whose marriages were broken because of the ease of “chatting” on Facebook with people they had no business talking with or seeing. I haven’t enjoyed the arguments started because of strongly held beliefs. I haven’t enjoyed hearing about the ease with which people can download images and videos that they have no business looking at. Families are broken and lives ripped apart because of the selfishness of people and what they think they can get away with. There is very little integrity present in people today. It is a society of “what they don’t’ know won’t hurt them” but believe me, it does hurt them very much. Secrets are never secrets forever. Nothing is ever gone from the internet no matter what you did to erase it. Lives are never the same.

I will continue to post to this blog from time to time, but only people who really enjoy reading it will bother to log back in. Mostly this will be for me personally as an outlet for my thoughts. I won’t be gone forever, but at least for a while. I think my life will be richer because of it. Everyone should try it for a while. You might be amazed at the life you have been missing and the people who have been missing you. I’m just sayin…
