I would like to just write uplifting and humourous stuff all the time. I have to write how I feel and what’s going on instead. It’s not to depress anyone or a cry for help. It’s just part of what I do, of who I am. I write about what I know and who I am in that moment. We’re all the same at the very core of who we are regardless of race, gender, religion, political affiliation, job, financial status. We all have to deal with feelings and lifes ups and downs.
Everyone has coping mechanisms, it doesn’t matter who you are or where you live. Some have what is considered healthy outlets, while other have things they do to cope that’s seen as unhealthy. Whose to judge what’s healthy and unhealthy really. We live in a world where everyone has an opinion about what someone else does. In the end though it’s really you that has to decide what’s right for you. No one else can or should.
Obviously a coping mechanism shouldn’t harm anyone else or yourself. You would think that would be obvious. It’s not though. For some people making others feel miserable makes them feel better. Especially the people who hide behind their computers online. They like to harass others to make themselves feel better while hurting others.
Social media is a great thing. It connects us to people all over the world. It’s also a horrible thing as well. It allows lack of social skills to continue. People sit at their computer or are on their phone, comparing themselves to happy posts they see on social media sites. All those happy posts are an illusion. No one is going to post the truth about their lives. So everyone plays pretend and edits their lives to make it look like they have it so great. This is actually causing more depression in people, that and people harassing each other online.
At the core of it all we are all the same. Who wouldn’t like to just have their lives together, feel good, be happy, feel loved, wanted and accepted. Maybe have life be a little easier, not be in debt, have friends around you that understand you. Just to feel and be okay everyday would be enough. Then no one would need to have coping mechanisms because they feel okay.
