Things That I Grow Weary Of On Social Media

In the last couple of years I have come to appreciate my time off of social media. Aside from how big a distraction it can be there are a couple things about it that I just grow weary of seeing on my feed.

Abortion Talk Like germs I try to avoid this topic at all costs because it’s a ring around discussion. But here it goes. You want a baby to live- I do too- but at the same time you’re contempt with capital punishment or busting a cap in someone for so much as looking at you the wrong way or for seeing things differently than you do. We seem to crave blood more than we do water.

Bad News Donald Trump said or did this. Coronavirus is growing. More bad weather on the way. Republicans & Democrats refusing to agree yet again. Another school shooting with this number of injured and deceased students/staff. Another racial hate crime, so close to the anniversary of so and so’s death. Can we not hear more about a nice gesture someone did for their neighbor?

Horrorscopes You get to decide your decisions; who your friends are; who you date/ marry; your career; and what goals you set. Who doesn’t get to decide that are the captivating constellations in the night sky; the psychics; or the spirits(fallen angels)who observe your daily activities/ behavior, which is how these psychics know certain things about you. Let us be careful what we welcome into our lives.

“Nobody Loves Me” Despite how trashy you might think you are- and we all are- you can always count at least one person on your finger who cares about you. After you’ve been kicked in the gut in a manner of speaking, this person will not give you anymore hits because for one you look like you’ve suffered enough. Whether it be a parent; sibling; friend; child; teacher; church member; coworker; or significant other, this person will be a fan of yours no matter how low you go. Because of that one compassionate person we can aspire to do better than the day before. Let us also consider that someone left all His glory to put on flesh like you and me; endure the same day to day challenges; just to die for you and me to have a chance at a life better than the one we have. We are loved!

People Talking About Not Having Enough Money Yet these same people are going out to restaurants; movies; vacations; or buying the latest shoe; video game accessory ; etc. We can indulge ourselves, but at the same time we can save some of our earnings. Also, it is good if we give back ten percent of our earnings in tithe. For it is not by your dedication alone that you have that money.

People picking apart comedians It is their job to make people laugh. I don’t believe they are trying to provoke. They are just trying to make a living with a talent they have like anybody else. Not only do they have the talent of humor but in standing up before crowds but also open eyes and ears about certain topics that are considered heavy. I find it non discriminative if the comedian can talk about every race; nationality; gender; sexuality; religion; political party; opinion; issue; etc. If you can’t find it in yourself to crack a smile; laugh; or nearly wet yourself from a humorous moment, you are going to be unhappy.

Is This You In This Video”. I swear I get these videos in my Facebook messenger at least once a week. No sir/No mam it is not me. I’m too busy throughout the week to be caught on video doing anything. The most you’ll catch me out in the streets doing these days is delivering packages and dodging dogs while doing so.

Now it’s your turn!

What do you grow weary of on social media?

By David Harris

I was born on January 31, 1992. I graduated from Austin Peay State University in December 2015 with a B.S. My major was Communications, with a concentration in Print & Web Journalism. My minor was English, with a concentration in Creative Writing. Writing is my passion. I’m a book lover. I prefer to to be called a Booklion rather than a bookworm. Why- lions are mightier.
My first love is Jesus Christ. I was raised in the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. No we are not a cult. We are Christians who worship on Saturday.
I have been stuttering since I was four, but through Christ I have persevered through it and will continue to do so. I’m not thing with Him.
Singing is another passion of mine. God blessed with me with the gift of song, which I am grateful for.
