Social media is the fuel for a declined mindset state - so much dependency leads to unresourceful addictions ... says he who is posting this on social media - WELL, just for your awareness.
Guys if you grab you phone more than your manhood ...
you may possibly need to review things LOL .. seriously when I was at school "hands in the pants" was an epidemic - at least you were in touch with reality :)
Ladies if you swap putting on make up at the lights for texting at the lights - things are not balanced ... you are in need of a review - it is more important that you look great - YES?
what is our mind doing?
Social media fuels the competition between:
1. your need to be connected with people - that is you have friends and you communicate and get a nice warm fuzzy (LOVE). Not getting the warm fuzzy, then the self-talk kicks thinking about why is this shit happening.
Connection (associated with trust) is so fragile in the social media space - WHY? - because you are missing the physical contribution to the conversation. During an in person conversation even if you felt the connection was being lost their body message can give you comfort that it is not the case. Hence why our teens, tweens, millennials gave rise to the cyber bullying - it is faster to appear and far more prevalent.
NB: I do not believe in bullying, we created this label and it has done way more harm than any good we thought it could.
The rise of the cyber bully is a direct result of unfit mindsets that are addicted to fragile state of mind that social media creates. This feeling and knowing that 'everyone' else is watching everything that is happening and you are being judged for it without reasonable and fair right of reply. I want to get mindsets to the stage of WHO CARES who is watching ... just be YOU - as long YOU is resourceful, respectful etc. - all those great qualities that make an example of humanity.
Those who judge need more help than you being judged
2. your need to feel significant (important) - that is knowing that your contribution is valued by others and without it you find you way to self doubt questioning yourself as to whether or not your opinion matters.
Significance (associated with respect) has never been more present in our society as a result of social media. The Like, Love, WOW, Haha etc and comments can quickly upset the balance - particularly when the person has put so much of themselves out in the open, only not to be supported. Your awareness of this can be SIGNIFICANT ie. if a friend posts something really raw and from what you perceived is out of character then support their post - even a like lets them know you are there. Never know what kind of downward spiral you could be preventing.
Sounds like we have created a super emotionally sensitive environment where you have to have a heightened sense of awareness in regard to your actions in social media - FUCK YES you do - well for the moment, maybe a decade as we go about waking up the mindsets to this addiction that will have a far greater fatality rate then any other social disease. This addiction leads to stress and stress is the biggest KILLER of them all.
Be Present in Life ... meaning be tuned in to what your friends and peers are posting - don't just sweep it away as another one of their crazy arse posts. Take action to let them know you are there.
