Social Media Rehab

It’s been 2 weeks since I’ve deactivated Instagram and Facebook and a few hours since I finally let Snapchat go๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ my goal is to completely let go of it for good!! What was once a fun way to interact with strangers and meet new people is now a headache!! Social media has altered reality so now how things are perceived via social media is what others believe is our reality!! 
Our body goals, life goals, travel goals, relationship goals are all influenced by other peoples “social media realities.”
 I read an article somewhere that stated that social media is now a leading cause of depression and other mental health issues!! Children are growing up believing their life is only validated by likes and followers! You can call a friend nowadays and wish them happy birthday and later get chewed out because you didn’t tell them via social media๐Ÿ˜’
I’ve found myself interrupting a perfect moment because I needed to snap real quick ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ And this is not new problem for me…I was using AOL cds to get onto black planet 15 years ago๐Ÿ˜‚ MzBrittney_lsd was my screen name ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ social media has always been fun for me…it’s always been my thing!! But at some point enough is enough. I recently had an incident in a Facebook group were a guy I was talking to got caught in a lie…a grown 30 something year old man at that point gets to name calling and bullying!! …because he’s a bad liar๐Ÿค” it was at that point that I reached my enough point! I had allowed a person that I didn’t know, that meant nothing to me to hurt my feelings, make me question myself, had me defending my character to other people I don’t know!! Wasted time and energy!! Yep, enough is enough!
My goal in the end is to have more meaningful social interactions because right now my social life (outside of traveling) consists of liking and commenting on people’s pictures! There’s a great need to do better. 

Valentine’s Day is stupid…or am I just bitter๐Ÿค”

I’ll take bitter for 500 Alex ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜‚ this year is no different from any other year on Valentine’s Day for me!! I spent the day on airport alert and then I worked a roundtrip to El Paso!! I didn’t have an official valentine but I do kinda like a guy๐Ÿ™ˆ lol Nothing major but I ordered a few things from Amazon that I knew he would like and just so happened (๐Ÿ˜œ) to have it delivered on Valentine’s Day ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚ I think I made his day he wasn’t expecting it and I think he actually liked it!! I mean everyone likes to feel special on days like this (even if the won’t admit it) I finished my trip around 8:30pm and headed to the crashpad. Completely bummed about the day!! Between Instagram and Facebook and all the mushy shit in the airport I was second away from sliding in my exes inbox like “hey bighead, wyd?” ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜‚  

I eventually linked up with “the guy” only to see there were no flowers, candy, or cards๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ boy was I devastated!! Even tho I had coached myself all day to not expect anything…expecatations still got the best of me๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ฉ I ended up showering and calling it a night!! 

I’m already coming up with my game plan for Valentine’s Day 2018…stay tuned๐Ÿ˜Ž
