We Don't Need Social Media

We Don't Need Social Media

We shouldn't let numbers define who we are.

Sometimes I wonder why social media is even a thing, all it does is make us not be able to have a face to face conversation and defines us by how many likes we get on a picture and how many followers we have on a social media platform. But we shouldn't let numbers define how popular we are or how cute we look. Social media is not that important to depend your life on it by posting a picture on Instagram every day and tweeting nonsense every minute.

We're so busy trying to get 200 likes on an Instagram picture that we can't even talk to people. I mean we can but that's over texting and snapchat but if we're face to face it's very awkward, especially if you haven't seen that person in a while. Social media became this thing that we lean on when nobody's listening.

We shouldn't feel like we need to post a picture today because we haven't posted one in a week. Things like that don't matter unless that's actually your job, but even then how long is that going to be your job. How long is social media going to be around? In a couple of years, there might be a new trend where nobody has an Instagram anymore or any other social media.

Only some of the followers you have actually like you and the other ones are just following you to see what you are doing and you have the followers that only follow you because you follow them. The numbers of followers you have don't make you better than anyone else.

We try to document everything that happens to us that we're too busy to enjoy that moment. The best moments of your life don't need to be on Facebook or Instagram, they need to be cherished between you and the others that are a part of that moment.

We get mad when someone looks through our phones because it's "private" but we post everything that happens to us on social media. It doesn't make sense. All social media is doing is having us compare our lives to others and hating everything we have because someone has better. Nobody is as perfect as they make themselves seem on social media. Just because it's not posted on social media doesn't mean it's not true. Social media doesn't make us happy if we want to be happy we have to be willing to live the life we have and not document a life we wish we had. We can't compare our lives to others because no one is the same, not everyone has the same dreams and same needs and wants.

Social media does nothing for us except give us low self-esteem because we don't get a certain amount of likes. We should be able to live without social media. We should let how we portray ourselves in public define who we are as a person.

We So Often Rush Our Lives That We Forget To Enjoy It

We rush almost everything we do. We rush into things. We rush time. We rush to get somewhere.

Rush. We rush almost everything we do. We rush into things. We rush time. We rush to get somewhere. We rush through assignments. We rush to get ready in the mornings. We rush to get to work or school, and we rush to get home. We rush through the week to make it to the weekend. We rush through the winter to make it to the summer. We as humans are always in a rush.

We even rushed to grow up. And now we would do anything just to go back to when it didn’t feel like time was running away from us like we weren’t trying to grasp it just to watch it slip back out of our hands again. Time seems like it went so much slower when we were young. It felt like there were so many hours in the day. Now I feel like there are walks I haven’t walked, laughs I haven’t laughed, songs I haven’t sung.

Don’t you ever wish you could just slow down? Don’t you wish you could just be still and be present? I get tired of being in a rush all the time. Obviously, there are things we can do to not be in such a rush; perhaps we could wake up on time, leave the house earlier, etc. But what about the things we can’t change? We can’t help anticipate the future. We can’t help rush through the bad just to get to the good, even though that bad is what is preparing us for what good is held for us. I am world’s worst about rushing things; I always want the rainbow without the rain... As does anybody.

I just wish for stillness. I feel like stillness is fake. Being alive means constant change, and I really wish I could just be still. Everything is moving all of the time, so even if I feel stagnant, I am definitely moving in some godforsaken direction.

Life moves so quickly as it is. It moves even faster when we coast through in a hurry. I’ve learned that time means so much. Spend every minute of it in the moment. You will very surprised how much time you have for life whenever you slow down.

When was the last time you sat and let the wind blow through your hair? When did you sit on your front porch step and listen to the birds' chirp? When was the last time you laid your head on the backseat window and enjoyed the passing scenes? We never enjoy the little things; we always focus on the bigger picture.

I feel so often that I’m running out of time. It always feels like there aren’t enough hours... But sometimes we need a nice reminder to just take it easy. This is your reminder. Enjoy your life. Find your stillness. Your hourglass will eventually run out of time. So dip your feet into the river. Go to the art fair. Compliment those crooked eyebrows. One day, your golden paint will be black.
