Random Thoughts…

If your friend, a millenial, does not have a social media account, would you feel sorry for him??

Does that mean he was beyond time!? Does that mean he does not know what is happening in the world?!

Asking, I came to realize, what does social media do to my personality. Social media such as facebook, tweeter,instagram, pinterest, etc..

In fairness to social media,  it brings us closer together. It educates us through information which might not occur in any parts in my location neither in yours.

It gives us bright ideas for upcoming events in what to prepare, do, gimmicks, party games etc…

On the other side of the coin, social media has this side in which I do not know if I am the only one experiencing it or what. But social media affects me in the sense that it gets in my nerves.

There are certain things that I saw, which gives me a feeling of anxiety, greed, sadness and most of the time envy!

Yes, I am only human, and yes I feel your love but I wish I can feel what you feel, I wish I am where you are, I wish I can buy what you have.

I am blessed of what I have but sometimes I envy what you have. Yes, I have money to buy, but what you have is something that money cannot buy. And because of that I feel envious, anxious, and helpless, and sad.

They say, Only you can allow what can hurt you. That is absolutely right! But i when things are spread out in my social media, I cannot help but feel sad.

I tried to mute notifications, hide, unfollow, and sometime deactivate account just to get through.

So tell me, Do you feel sorry for me? Do I feel sorry for my friend who do not have social accounts?

Or does he feel sorry for me???
 For my  friend who do not have social media account

  1. I understand where you’re coming from. I also unfollow and hide things that make me sad.
    Still, i maintain my social media accounts for the advantages you have mentioned; info, and getting in contact with loved ones.
    You just need to always focus on the good things it can bring. Use social media wisely, use it to your advantage. I do not feel sorry for a friend who doesnt like using the social media.

  2. I know that feel..
    sometimes I feel envy when seeing my friends picture in instagram..
    and sometimes it makes me feel sad.., but also sometimes it makes me happy.
    Now I rarely open instagram, sometimes I do share my picture, but rarely open it.Because I try not to see my friends post… I don’t want to feel the anxiety
    Social media is hard to avoid nowadays. And i feel it is a blessing for people who never use social media.

  3. Friend, i have social media accounts but i don’t use them that much. I use some for communication purposes. I seldom post things that happens to me. And when I do, I usually make it short and indirect to make the audience think.
    And come to think of it, I am more of an observer and listener. So, I would rather see your posts than create one.

    P.S. Sometimes worrying less and believing to the One above makes life easier. =) Let me use this chance to promote my account… https://www.clixsense.com/en/Affiliates-My_Referrals?active=yes
