Recently I took a day and a half off of social media, and it wasn’t easy. Why am I on social media? This weekend I had to consider that question as it ran over and over in my mind. Connection. It’s the connection that causes me to gravitate back to the Twitterverse and the people that hang there. I’ve made some really great friends there, and the writing community is something so special, that I know I’ll never get a group here IRL…outside the computer.
That said: I’m so sick…
- I’m SO Sick of the negativity. I go on social media to write, to connect, and to escape the horrors of my own life. To block them out for just a few seconds. Okay, that’s exaggerating, my life isn’t horrible, but it can get lonely. Don’t confuse me being lonely as in sexual or relationship wise, but for friendships. But, every time I turn around, I’m slammed in the face with negativity.
- I’m SO Sick of the hate that our country has become. How about instead of BITCHING about every little thing; example: The Chuch Shooting that occurred today. SO many people lost their lives and you people (you know who you are) are bitching about the fact that it’s not being labeled one way or another. Fuck! It’s a tragic horrific thing that has happened, and let’s just call it that?!!? The murderer is dead, so charging him with “terrorism” or whatever isn’t going to happen.
- I’m SO Sick of hearing about Hollywood and all that bullshit! I feel like we’re all on an ice rink and we’re skating figure eights around what sexual harassment is. Guys AND Girls: SEXUAl HARASSMENT IS WHEN YOU PUSH A PERSON IN A SEXUAL MANNER OUTSIDE WHAT THEY ARE OKAY WITH. NO MEANS NO, CASHING CHECKS MEANS YOU ARE NO LONGER A VICTIM, MASTURBATING IN FRONT OF SOMEONE WHOM YOU’RE NOT IN A COMMITTED MUTUAL RELATIONSHIP WITH IS WRONG, SAYING A WOMAN LOOKS BEAUTIFUL IS NOT SEXUAL HARASSMENT!
- I’m SO Sick of people bitching about things but not actually making a plan to do something about it! Sure, call out all these people who are killing, sexually assaulting, and just overall shit, but what the hell are you even doing about it besides BITCHING!?!?!?! MAKE A PLAN!!!!
I just want to write. When you come up with a plan or are willing to listen to someone else who has a plan to FIX these things that are broken in our country….THEN come spray your ugly all over my social media feed, until then…accept the unfollows or mutes because I can’t take this DISTRACTION anymore!
GET OFF THE MERRY-GO-ROUND and DO SOMETHING! Spewing hate and acting childish by name calling and doing NOTHING isn’t helping anything.
