It’s been about a week since I last posted. I apologize for the delay.
I have projected a lot about myself in my posts and this should be similar. However, I think many will relate here. As pessimistic as I come off, what I say is meant with good intentions.
When Facebook first debuted it was a platform for mainly college students. That disappeared quickly. Myspace was geared towards younger folks and in hindsight seemed convoluted and incomplete. Now you have young kids to the young-at-heart enjoying the benefits of these services. This is how it should have been from the get-go, but you live and learn.
I know some of us feel uncomfortable with our parents, grand-parents, or kids using it along with us, but that is one of the perks as well. (The privacy and blocking features help too.)
But when I see folks of all ages, shapes, sizes, creeds, colors, (or any other unnecessary demographic you come up with) posting photos and status updates about their lives, it’s a good thing. There is room for everybody. And contrary to popular belief, there has always been room. If it makes you fulfilled and feel good, then more power to you. This is what life is all about.
Younger folks post images of VIP Bottle Service and others post photos of their kid’s first night out trick-or-treating on Halloween or their first Christmas. In-between you’ll get random photos of dishes from a fancy restaurant or traffic jams on the interstate. It may comes off self-serving or narcissistic, but this is the world we live in. And if it brings joy and positivity, there is nothing but good that can come out of it.
We should be so thankful we live in the age that we do. If this were 10-20+ years ago, a lot of us would end up with the same lives as everyone else. Because of the influences from mainstream media and the systems that “run” (ran?) our society, most of us would be lemmings or sheep. And many of us still are. But something is changing. It’s a great sign that people are awakening to the fact that there an infinite amount of ways to live a life. The Internet and a natural awareness in our consciousness has changed all that. We are headed somewhere special and the rest of the ride is going to be magnificent. If you want to be young forever, you can. In any you want to. Just don’t hurt anybody! 🙂 I understand I’m writing with a lot of vague commentary and ambiguities. But once again, I will elaborate on this in the future. I will have to.
