Thought-pourri

We only see what we want to. We only see what we are shown. When mixed together the picture can be so far away from the truth. If that is my truth, it can as easily be yours.

Social media is a great reminder why you went apart in the first place. There is a reason we stop talking connecting. Just because the means of communication have increased, we don’t necessarily have that much to say.

What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger. This cliche couldn’t be more true. If you get up one day and realize you survived the most dreaded day of your life, you know life will go one and so will you.

How do educated successful people not have an opinion in life. Or perhaps they do and they do not wish to share it. It is their prerogative after all. Or are they not adequately provoked or worse still affected.

Marital relationships continue to be a mystery. It seems as though social media activity is inversely proportional to quality of one’s marital life. I am working on this theory.

Have a great Monday and week!

    Yes, I quite agree with your inversely proportional theory but that holds good for every relationship.. We are constricting each others space..

    Remind me to pat my back for not being there on Facebook 😉

    • Oh I am intrigued by your better fences theory.

      Pat your back away, but I think however intrusive and superficial Facebook might be it has come to stay. And there is a lot of good that can come out of it.

  2. My husband an I sit in our computer room with headphones on and our eyes glued to a screen…phone, tablet, kindle, or monitor. He even uses voice chat.

    I think the problem is not social media (although it’s especially bad), but the net.

    It’s pulled us apart in some ways…seems pretty bad when we sit side by side not even exchanging smiles. But isn’t that kind of like watching TV?

    I don’t have any answers, but what you say is thought provoking! 🙂

    During mealtimes we discuss the things we found online and laugh about reddit together or watch movie trailers that we’d red about, we talk about each other’s online friends, et.
