Today’s Society,

First I would like to say hey, how are you? Do you even know how you are, or are you too concerned with how everyone else is doing? Social Media has made this the trend. No, people abusing Social Media have made this the trend. As soon as you start posting things like, “I’m going to delete people if they never like my posts” or “if I don’t get ___ amount of likes I’m going to delete that picture,” YOU SHOULD DELETE EVERYTHING. Social Media should be a way to connect with people and share your life virtually, not to measure your self worth based on how many people double tapped your post! Please, STOP. Everyone, obviously referring to the general public, is SO glued to their devices and media, that they can’t even find time to do the SIMPLE, most REWARDING activities. Like, I don’t know, listen to your grandparents tell you stories, volunteer at a charity event, say hello and introduce yourself to someone new? Enjoy the little things in life because they ARE happiness: smiles and laughs, tears and frowns, hugs and kisses, late night talks and midnight walks. That is happiness. Building memories, not followers. Building meaningful relationships, not irrelevant updates. Connect with people. And lay a legacy you want left behind. To the girl who seeks attention on Instagram, you are beautiful and you don’t need the acceptance of acquaintances. To the couple who airs out problems on Facebook, stop, stop destroying your relationship by getting others involved and TALK to each other. To the guy who tweeted about going to the grocery store, thank you so much for enhancing my day by telling about your trip to get chicken tenders, but stop. Stop posting, and start noticing. Don’t let life pass you by.

Thank you for tolerating my rant,

Just A Girl
