i was in my feelings (no drake) and tweeted:
“i can kinda see why people kill themselves because of social media”
one can lose themselves trying to get status on instagram.
if you aren’t witty enough for tweeting,
you’re sent to the twitter graveyard.
for the ones we admire,
it comes so easy to them.
it left me to wonder…
What does a healthy social media life look like?
– you aren’t ignored if you tweet/ig/pin/whatever
– flooding timelines with constant updates of your life
– pushing the limits of how naked you can go
– showing your audience you have the means to afford a better life
– doing whatever you need to do to have dms filled with potential sexual conquests
… because all of things lead back to “acceptance”.
folks just want to feel accepted out here.
you can do whatever in your social world,
but if no one shows you any kind of love,
you will literally die a social media pariah.
i don’t know if i’m one of the popular bloggers.
as of late,
i feel like i’m starting to be taken seriously.
i’m getting more feedback than i have ever have.
there are days i’ll tweet and get no response tho.
i feel like a “real life blogger”.
the real bloggers can legit tweet:
…and get about 100 retweets in about 2 minutes.
on my “emo” days,
i’d be like…
“What do I need to do to get “that” kind of love?”
that’s why some folks get suicidal due to social media.
like it or not,
no matter if it’s apple or andriod,
they rule everything at the moment.
we’re so connected to the entire planet with just one phone plan.
there is a rush of endorphins that come when strangers “like” you.
“my chicken wings from the chinese spot got 100 likes.
“i was grindin in my underwear and got 25,000 views.
i’m alllllllllllll the way poppin boo”
it’s easy to become a “fan” of a relative nobody.
like a legit nobody.
alla that seems like a healthy social media life.
if folks aren’t living vicariously through you:
*if you’re feeling suicidal,
please call the national suicide hotline:
