Social Media

Social media is fairly new to our world and I think we are all trying to figure it out, as I know that I do everyday. Everyone has their own choice of social media outlet whether it be through twitter, tumblr or youtube. This gives us a form of expression – to say what is on our minds or to share our talents. How I first described this when writing my blog out of “hate” was that social media is a journal that is not private. It’s used for good and most times used for bad. People are quick to be rude, spiteful, and bully someone over the social media forum. It’s a way of saying fuck you without actually saying it to someone’s face because you don’t actually have to face them it makes it so much easier to just go on with your day. I feel like this is why bullying has become such a growing pain in this world. It’s easy to put someone down over the internet. What you have to realize as your typing away is that what you do does affects others PERIOD.

On the other hand from a readers perspective – it’s the way you view it. It’s the way you interpret what others say or show. With social media this is also something that I have learned. – Through social media we tend to judge a person by their exterior without really knowing them as a person. Whether it be in a picture that they post on twitter or Facebook or even just a picture of a celebrity in a magazine. We look at them and say wow they have it all together. They have a perfect life. I want that life. But really you NEVER really know what is truly going on in that persons life. We put these people on a pedestal and start comparing OUR lives to THIERS.

You just have to know that we all have our own problems. No matter who you are, what you do, what you have, what you don’t have, we all have our own crutches. Our own health and mental issues, family issues, relationships, debts, deaths, divorces. So remember that your WORD does travel – whether it’s through media or in person it means a lot to someone out there and may even brighten someones day or hurt them. So be impeccable with your WORD. And remember that God made YOU special.

Inspired by this video & personal experiences – Leviticus 19:18

Confidence.

How powerful is having confidence? Confidence is a positive energy that people are naturally drawn to. It effects everything you do. Every person or opportunity you encounter. How do I know this? Because I once lost it. I know what it feels like to have no self worth. To feel like I had nothing to offer the world. But to find your way out of that and learn from it is the most self-fulfilling prophecy. Though some people may not succeed in certain areas of their life like a sport they still remain confident in their demeanor, simply because they don’t put a great deal of emphasis on that activity. Why be negative? Negativity gets you nowhere. God gave us life, follow his path and be merry. FAITH and TRUST are just synonyms of confidence when used in this sense.

Positivity and confidence go hand in hand. Stop thinking about what others think of you! You are you and people should except you for who you are and your beliefs. If they don’t they are not your friend. This leads me to say, surround yourself with positive people who influence you in a positive manor. Like I said confidence is like a magnet, what people exude will eventually rub off on you.

Admit your mistakes. Owning up to your mistakes and learning from them is just a step to gaining self-confidence. Working hard to cover up a mistake before anyone sees it just sounds exhausting to me. Don’t you think?

Lastly be appreciative, except compliments graciously and move forward. It’s more fuel for your soul 🙂 Philippians 4:13
