Lately I am finding that social media is worse than the sticker shock that I get when I go shopping at the mall. I am more often now than before gasping at the shit streaming through my feed. And it does not matter what social media platform that I am on. At least once a day, one of them is guaranteed to hurdle me into that “what the fuck and why” moment. It seems that nothing is sacred or personal anymore. And lawd knows it sure isn’t just done behind closed doors no more either. I mean, what won’t people do for a click or a like and please don’t let there be a chance that they can get a follow out of it, things will really start to get interesting and downright unpredictable. I try to do my best not to comment on some of the senseless photos and post that I see sometimes but there are times that I cannot help but take pause and comment “WHY?!” and move on. Other times I just stop following or delete your ass because you make me want to throw up my insides.
What are we doing people? Why are y’all posting sex videos and naked pics on a public platform that young impressionable minds have such easy access to. Is it that you are just too damn stupid and need so much attention that you just don’t care? You apparently don’t care about those young impressionable minds that are going to be traumatized by your dumb bullshit. But of course, there is not much innocence on social media any way. Everything or at least most things seem to be “cover your eyes and close your ears kinda stuff”. There used to be a time when people would dare not tell or show anyone outside of their own four walls and your bedroom closet half of the crap I see on social media nowadays. But, I guess everybody is just desensitized to the things that I find offensive. I would like to think that it was that simple, but I am not buying that or accepting that as my truth. Shame on those of us that are so desperate for attention and human interaction that we would rather post the sins of our souls and the misfortunes of others than to just pick up the phone and call a friend and say, “hey girl, hey homey” or whatever. “What you are doing, do you want to come over and chill for a minute?”, “Let’s hangout sometimes” or just check in on one another just to say, “How are you doing?”. We don’t really do that kind of real life shit anymore. We only communicate through our laptops and cell phones via text messages and social media posts. And then we wonder why the fuck we always feel lonely at the end of the day. Hell, y’all sit in a room full of people just to have shit to post on your page and all the while ain’t experiencing a damn thing around you.
I’ll tell you why your ass is lonely, it is because through all of that mindless bullshit, you haven’t actually seen anybody outside of that damn screen on your phone or whatever other electronic device you’re hauling around at the time. Humans need physical interaction and real intimacy not this pretend crap that most of us are so addicted to. Ain’t shit intimate about a damn Instagram post or an update to your profile pic. No wonder why there are so many fucked up people in this world. We don’t know what the fuck to do in the “Real World” any more. If it ain’t on a lighted screen most of us are lost. The presence of the internet has turned most of us into reflections of chaos and distortion. I have said it once before and I will say it again, “Everybody wanna claim they woke but most y’all sleep walking and don’t even know it”. Stop doing dumb shit for likes and posts. Fix your life y’all. Fix your mother fucking life. Everything ain’t got to be for a like or another re-post. Learn to enjoy the moments in life for what they truly are. Embrace life instead making your life just a collection of posts on your timeline that you can barely remember.
