It’s Skyeeeeee! How are y’all? (:
. . .
So on Thursday in Philosophy class, we were talking about how easy it is to be influenced by people and things around you. Whether it’s from the Tv, Music you listen to, Social media or even just from your friend’s mouth, your brain is constantly subconsciously taking in new things every second. That’s pretty cool huh?
Well after this, our teacher then went on to talk about how dangerous it can become if what we are taking in is negative. Oh. Okay, that’s not so cool… He then gave us each a sheet of paper and set the clock to five long minutes. In this time, we were told to write down any thoughts and ideas that we might have about how today’s teenagers have been affected negatively by social media. And the sad thing is, not only was I able to come up with a billion answers, but I was also able to relate to more than half of them.
With most of those being the common affects of poor self esteem, general self-consciousness and insecurity, careless language, and most often with my negative thoughts, actions, and sometimes even my negative attitude. And I know I can’t blame all of these specifically on social media as I know my character does play a huge role in the way my brain thinks…But the truth is, if you are constantly being bombarded (and this does tend to happen a lot more subconsciously) with the type of stuff that is not particularly healthy for you, you will, and I mean this, start to find it can become like a drug. And you will get yourself caught in it’s grasp. Because like drugs, once you have injected the nasty stuff, it’s really hard to get rid of it again. And trust me, I’m still trying to get rid of some of the affects from my past mistakes…oops haha.
. . .
So, just to wrap this all up – In no way am I shaming or bagging out social media. No haha. I love social media waaaay too much to do that! I mean, I’ve met some of my best friends on it! And also, I get to blog on here and talk to all of you incredible people! (: Haha, no way. The purpose in me writing this blog was just to warn you guys to be carefuuuul! And I know you probably here stuff like this all the timeeeee (Especially from your parents…I’M NOT TRYING TO BE YOUR MUM! I SWEAR!), but I also know that sometimes you gotta hear something a billion times before it finally clicks. And I really, really want this to click for any of you who might be needing to hear it for the 1,000,000,000th time haha.
So yeaaaah, thank you for taking your time with reading this little random blog! I hope it kinda made some sense? Haha (;
Stay Happy & God bless!
