Quote of the Week:You Don’t Have To Be Friends With Everybody

Standard

“We live in an age where we feel guilt whenever we have to cut someone off but the reality is that some relationships do need to die, some people do need to be unfollowed and defriended. We aren’t meant to be this tethered to the people in our past.

The Internet mandates that we don’t burn bridges and keep everyone around like relics but those expectations are unrealistic and unhealthy. Simply put, we don’t need to know what everyone else is up to. We’re allowed to be choosy about who we surround ourselves with online and in real life, even if it might hurt people’s feelings.” by Ryan O’Connell

Why I don’t use Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat

Standard

It makes me sad how we’ve become so attached to technology. I see people everywhere taking pictures while having their face engrossed in their phones when the sun is shining and there isn’t a cloud in the sky. No one ever experiences the moment anymore. Everything is going be posted somewhere for someone to see because people measure their value based on “likes”. This is part of the reason I don’t have a Facebook,  Instagram  or Snapchat accounts because I don’t want to lose my sense of living every moment to its fullest. I don’t want to ignore my parents, friends or significant other solely because I’m looking to see who commented/liked my stuff. My brain is perfectly capable of retaining memories and the essence of life is the acquisition of memories. I don’t want to look back when I’m old and have to look at my phone to see what I did when I was young. I want to live it! I was born blessed with all of my senses. Why not use them.

Inspiration From The Social Media: Breaking the rules

Standard

Rules are like promises, words, and hearts are meant to be broken. Rules seep between the cracks of life to control your mind and then squeeze your neck to suffocate you. We live within an open air prison made up by society. Who makes all these rules? It’s your government, your society, your peers, your colleagues, etc. They set all the rules and decide what the norms for you are in order to keep you in check and stop you from stepping out of your comfort zone. That’s why, we struggle to be perfect all the time, but what is perfection anyway? It is just another made up illusion to keep us down. We should feel the fear and dance with it; after all we learn and grow through failure.

The walls of society are closing and ready to stifle any flame of uniqueness, creativity and imagination. These made-up rules of society will turn you eventually into a fake person, a robot or a slave. It’s time for you to release your wrists from the fierce grip of society’s rules. Get the hell out of this scary dungeon and start to color your world outside the lines. Let your soul heal. And only then you will start to have fun in your life since you’re no longer afraid to be crazy, wild, rebel, unique and weird. You will have freedom to pursue your vocation and passion in life.
