Disconnect to connect…

Social media definitely has its place in our world but I believe it has made it too easy for some people to live in a bubble, believing they are popular because they have hundreds of online friends. In actual fact they have no “real” friends with whom they can interact face to face, or who really care. The problem with living in a bubble is that eventually it will pop, leaving you raw and exposed. I love to see what my relatives across the world are up to but I don’t need to see people’s lunch or hear them “rant” about things that should stay private. I am guilty of posting pics when we travel, but I figure if you don’t want to see them, scroll right on by, I know there are those that do. Sadly social media can create envy over relationships and lifestyles that don’t even exist and it’s important to remember that what happens on social media stays on google forever. Never before has a generation so diligently recorded themselves accomplishing so little. Being famous on Social Media sites is the same thing as being rich in Monopoly. It’s all about striking a balance; by all means have an online presence, but don’t forget to go out in the world and get a healthy dose of reality…
