If I could be cynical for a bit…my brain thinks it’s visiting social media for some excitement, but what’s really happening is a desire to get an answer to one or more of the following questions:
- What event or news is everyone upset about today?
- What’s the latest thing we are criticizing each other for doing, or not doing?
- What well known person has died, and how many people are going to freak out because of it?
- Which movie/TV Show/cultural phenomenon is everyone distracting themselves with?
Here’s the thing: Do I really want answers to these questions? I don’t.
Like anyone, what I’m really seeking is happiness. Remember happiness? Good old happiness. It certainly isn’t to be found in the realm of social media.
