Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I won’t even attempt to tell you the history behind this day, I just know there were pilgrims, a bird and some yummy pie; all the things that still matter, even now. I bet they were sitting around a table, passing the feast that they worked so hard on, while telling their loved ones what they loved about them. I don’t think this holiday has changed all that much. I think the only thing that has changed is the fact that their families were really tight and they were actually grateful for things. Also, they probably didn’t have Christmas decorations up, yet. Gosh, what I would do to live back in their time. P.s. If you are the type of person to put up Christmas decorations before thanksgiving, know there is a special place in hell for you!

I know you are with family, so I’ll make this quick. I just wanted to say what I was thankful for this year. There’s so many things I am thankful for, and I plan to tell you guys every one of them. Sit back and enjoy, then tell me what you are grateful for!

Family- Of course, this has to be on the list. I am not only talking about my blood, but also you guys. Thank you for the support and keeping this blog alive. You guys are awesome, so keep doing what you are doing, but also my blood family. I know we don’t talk a lot but know that I do love you. I wouldn’t be me without you guys. I love you Grandma, Dad, Jakki, Jammi, Rikki, and Kenna. All the others that aren’t included know that you rock, also.

Job- I have to be thankful for the multiple jobs that I have. Between maintenance, Subway and construction, I don’t know how I have time. Either way, I am so thankful that I don’t have to sell drugs to buy groceries. I feel for those people. But that doesn’t stop me from being thankful.

Hobbies- We all know that I have a lot of hobbies, also that I like to quit hobbies quickly. But the one hobby that has never gotten old to me is writing. Yeah, I sometimes get burnt out, but I could never fully stop writing. It’s great to talk to myself in Word, but then be able to share those thoughts to you guys. It’s freaking cool!

My church- The situation is finally solved. I have done my time. Something really awesome came from this experience, though. During the lowest of my lowest time, I was able to find my passion for God, again. I was also able to find a home church. I love the people there, I love the atmosphere, and I love that it accepted me in my dirtiest, as one of their own! I am glad to be in this church.

Josh- Thank you for being awesome, josh. You don’t know how much you have changed my life. You have always known what to say in the hardest times. You were there when I needed you the most, and I’m thankful to have you in my life!

Ariel- my wifey! I know I make you mad, and I know that you have planned my murder a hundred times, but I know you could never kill me. I am thankful that I met you years ago. I love you more now than I ever have. Thank you for going to church with me and supporting me through everything. I can wait to grow old with you and finally have little Bentley.

Life- I am so thankful for another day of life. So many people have been taken from us! I am sorry for any one of those families. It has to be hard to lose someone that you are so close to, I couldn’t imagine the feeling. I am thankful that I am still living.

Everything- I don’t take for granted anything in life. If you have a part in my life, know that I cherish you.

I hope you guys have a good day. I know I am ready to tear into some good ole fashion turkey. I pray God’s hand over all of you, especially if you’re traveling. Take a minute and comment what you are thankful for. I would love to hear it!

What is really hurting me is that people are hurting. This is the season for everyone to come together and feel loved. Christmas is about getting together with your loved ones and enjoying each others company as you celebrate. It doesn’t matter your beliefs, it doesn’t matter about money, all that matters is that you are together. Christmas is suppose to be about love, so why is everyone having such a rough time? Why do I see more depression and broken hearts, more death and a lot more negativity? Is it my set of friends or is everyone having a horrible season of holidays? Either way, what can we do?

I am a huge Facebook user, and each day I sign in and spend hours looking through post. I like to keep up with old friends, that I don’t usually talk to. I also like to share in special memories of others, such as babies, new cars, and much more. One of the biggest things I love to read are praises or small things that make peoples lives awesome. Recently, I found out that a close friend went on a prayer walk, one to get himself closer to God. He had a great time and got a lot from it. These little things make me so happy, then we also have those post about a girl that can’t take life anymore, these post are what get me upset.

Where, in life, do we find ourselves in so much pain that we have nothing to live for? I remember laughing and having a great time, as a child. Yet, somewhere we were giving a curse of depression? When did life get so hard? I’m not sure, but it is a huge problem.

We are talking about MILLIONS of people that suffer from depression. These are people that feel unwanted, abused, torn, worn, and alone. At one time, these people were happy, but something happened to where they fell and hit rock bottom. One of the main reasons is death. Everyone has lost someone due to death, it is the cycle of life, but that doesn’t mean it is easy. A death in the family can tear apart the most perfect relationships. A death as a mother can leave children broken for life, making it hard for them to even get through the day. Other reasons for depression can be; Failed classes, failed dreams, breakups, being ignored, loss of friends, money problems, and bullying. The list can go on for hours, but that isn’t the point. The point is; we have the chance to change this, by simply being there for them during the hard times!

I don’t want to see anyone hurting, especially during the holiday seasons. We are meant to be happy individuals, so what can we do? The answer is simple; we need to show them that they are loved. This doesn’t have to be a big gesture, it can as simple as texting them and telling them you love them, or inviting them over to your house for dinner. The smallest gestures can help tremendously. People just want to be wanted. They want to know that you are thinking about them. This is why Bart and I are sending out love!

I want to call this “Love for Christmas; A Better Gift.” This is where I will try to find those who are hurting and I will let them know that I am thinking about them! Bart (My Christmas Stuffed Animal) will write everyone (in pain) a small note, informing that person that they aren’t alone. I don’t know if this will help, but I have to do something. I think everyone of you guys should do the same. Write a small note to those you love, telling them that you are thinking of them, praying for them, or that you love them. It doesn’t have to be a long message, but I promise it will mean the world to those in pain. This Christmas, we need to let everyone know that we are together, as one, to celebrate. Will you do it?

Stop calling me, you’re a creep. I told you I don’t want to talk, clearly, from not answering your 20th call. You could spend some time fixing things, yet you just want to talk from a distance. I don’t see why I need to do your work, nor will I! You will screw this up, again, and we will have to wait for it to be fixed, well until I ask him to do it again! You’re a failure, and I hope you get what is coming to you, one day, then you might see what you had. You’re worse than the woman, I saw as a hero.

She was the one I loved, but she didn’t love me. She wanted to take everything from me, starting with my trust and ending with my happiness. I was forced to go through a few systems to find my way, and she wasn’t here when I got out, she was gone in the wind, never to be seen again, but that was the best part. She tore me down and convinced me of things that weren’t true. She was a monster. The drugs, she took, took her over and forced her to be someone that she wasn’t, before. I am so glad that I am away from here. If I were still under her, I wouldn’t be anywhere. It is sad that I had to compare you to this lady, but you are a spitting image of her. You lie, you cheat, and can’t make a right decision for the sake of your life!

She couldn’t make a decision either, that’s why she let her family decide. She told me that I wasn’t good enough. I died inside that night, followed by hours of empty stares. I became a family member to that wall, during our departure. He would listen to my sobs, though I wish it were you, it wasn’t. You moved on, deleting me from your life, like what we had was nothing. I hate you for that. I hate you for the fact that I loved you, but you could walk away, like that! Now, I can’t get you off my mind. I might say “I am fine” or “I don’t care” but that is such a lie! You are still on my mind, but now it’s anger that fills my heart. My hatred hasn’t been stronger since she didn’t show up, though.

She was told to be there, but she didn’t show up. I had to do all of the work, while she got to have fun. What a liar! She said she was good, but she sucked, I aint even talking about that….Her work style sucked. I stuck my head out for her, but she took me for granted. That is why I shut down….I would murder her, if it wasn’t punishable, and would hide her body at the bottom of the ocean, so that she would be ate by her family, but even they would spit her out. That voice is what I hated the most.

She wanted everyone to hear her, but she had nothing to say! Ha! That’s what I hear from you! I don’t hear anything from you guys! I didn’t fit it, so you cut me out of the picture, and force me to watch you, from the outside. I won’t though! I don’t miss you guys, because you were never close, anyways. You never supported my decision, the one to change my life. Nah! You didn’t like how it made me, and you wanted the old me back, yet you didn’t even like that guy, either. I wont be a puppet!

Someone else tried to make me a puppet after you, also. They said they were my family, that they would never leave. But one decision changed their minds, as they kicked me out and told me to go away. I didn’t hesitate, as I didn’t want to be there anyway. They were crazy, as they only want to control people, using text. I didn’t fall for the trap, and I prospered because of that. I found something I was looking for, though now I hate it!

I can’t stand the double-standards that go along with the game, and that I cant do what others do! WE were told not to do something, then he was able to do that same thing. I couldn’t believe it, so I asked “Why?” I was told that he asked before, so he was granted the opportunity. Now, after he’s gone, I have to pick up the weight and carry it. I want to give up that part, and move on to better things, but then what would I do?

I would miss his hair, for one. He never combs his hair, yet wonders why he doesn’t have a girl. You need to take care of yourself, before you can expect a girl to like you! But you don’t care, because secretly you’re gay! We know it, just admit it! I don’t know why you hide it! I would just come out and say it, that way you can move on and be happy. Maybe that’s it! Maybe you want to stay “Unpresentable” in order to save yourself, for the man that has your heart. I just solved the puzzle, I just found Atlantis! Bro, not cool.

What’s not cool is the lack of faith, though. Yes, I am talking to you. You think that I will continue to do this, without some push? I am done swinging! I wouldn’t want to waste your damn time, with another page. I will stop, I will walk away. Then as I am walking away, you will ask me to come back, but it will be too late. I would already be gone, and you would be the blame. So please continue, continue to say that you don’t have the time. You will see what you had, but it will be too late. Every artist is remembered after their death, I just didn’t want it to come to this. I didn’t want to have to force myself, but if it works, then I will take that door! I won’t ask, anymore! This is over, this is done, I am not immortal, and my bat has been swung. I don’t put myself in the least of those, anyways. You wouldn’t understand my thoughts, anyways! You think you would, but you can’t even go a day without being fooled by a door that says pull. You are tools, and I’m no longer your damn workbench!

I drop the mic, walk out the door, find a street, and ask for God. I wait for an answer, but nothing is there. I want to find someone to do it, but no one is there. The street is dark, lights are out, no one is walking and I need someone. I walk down the street, that is when I found you! I found happiness in you. I had to run after you, but I lost you. My hope was lost, and I didn’t know what to do. This is when I reached back out to you, but you IGNORED me! Luckily, I have someone! You….were….so…..Fake…….

The End!

There is no doubt that I will make it

image

I am sitting here thinking about my future, wondering where I could go, and wondering if I will ever make it to that place. I have been doing this for about two-years (on this blog) and really I have nothing to show for it. I don’t have anyone coming up to me and telling me nice job, I am not being paid, I really don’t have anything to show for it, at this point, I am just a low-end writer that just happens to post everyday. This will not be a post about how I feel sorry for myself, this post will be about how, even at the end of the wits a true writer will stand from the ashes and raise his pen. Writers that have been down this road know it can be hard. It is a never ending battle, and the beginning is the hardest part.
I have wrote a few blogs on this topic “Never giving up.” But today is different. Today, I am not telling you guys to not give up, also not telling you guys to keep going. Today is about me, I am fighting myself. I am fighting the self doubt inside, but also reviewing my work, and coming to a conclusion to the question “Can I truly make it?” I want to be quick to say yes, but at the same time, I know that not every writer will make it, and with many writers coming up the stream, it seems that I am heading the other current without a paddle. This paddle that I am talking about is college. It is hard to find a writing job, it is even harder to find a writing job without a college degree in Creative writing, journalism, copywriting etc. This is something I don’t have, but 90% of other writers do. This means that I lie in the pool with 10% of writers that might make it. I am of 10% of writers without a degree, how do we make it? Through social media, small jobs and friends.
I am on Facebook, which was my asocial media outlet, and I haven’t been seeing any spikes in performance. Now, this doesn’t mean that my work is bad, that is not the case, the case is that my work 1. Isn’t getting to the dark side of Facebook 2. They don’t care. 3. I don’t have a strong friend list. When I say the dark side of Facebook, I am talking about those friends that are really close with you, but at the same time, they don’t really connect over Facebook. They could be busy with work, on a different social media, or they don’t like Facebook, at all. Though, these might be the reasons, there is also another possibility. They could not care. This is a strong possibility, and also probably the case most of the time. People have different taste, they want what they want and nothing else. They want a post about a flower when you are posting about a flag, and want a post about a flag when you are posting about a flower. It is impossible to reach every listener on Facebook, because trends come and go, this is why you see a momentary increase in stats, because people are into what you are writing, but as quick as you got those views, they change their interest and you are left with nothing. Then there is number 3, which I believe is my case, you don’t have a strong friend list. This is saying that your “Friends” are on your Facebook because you were close at one time, but now you guys aren’t. They still want to be friends, you know to keep up, but they don’t interact with you. If you have a Facebook full of these friends, that is why you aren’t getting the clicks. This is when you need to clear your friends list, I highly recommend this, and start from fresh. You don’t want friends that don’t speak to you taking up all your space. Your post will only reach a few, so why not make sure that few are friends that care?
With this being said, what does that show for me? I would have to say that this is all a problem for me. My blog is great, as said by strangers, so this leaves one big thing; my friends. I have never had strong friends, they all have kind of sucked, at times. But the biggest thing that might have effect on me, is the fact that I was shunned by my friends a couple years back. This blog isnt about them, though. I just know that this could have a big effect on me, since I never deleted them. With them being on my friends list, they see my post but they never look at it, causing me to lose potential views. I have always seen that my “sees” are up, but my blog stats are low. This is because of those friends, they might scroll past it, but since we don’t see eye-to-eye they will not click onto the link. This is why it is important that you clear your friends list. That way you are reaching true fans and family, ones that will care about your dreams.
With this being said, what does it look like? What are the chances of me making it? It is as good as anyone else’s. I have the talent that it takes, so now it is just getting the horse to the water, once they are there, I will let my blog drag them in. I can’t expect this to catch fire instantly, though. It takes time to grow an audience. I will have to have faith to make it, and I will have to practice a lot. This means that I need to follow more artist and less posers, I will also need to follow the rule of Stephen King, which is “To be a great writer, you must read great writing.” It takes all your heart to become someone, and a lot of time. All you can do is hope and pray that you catch a break. I have already been through the praying, now it is time to get better and get ready for my big break. Every writer has the same odds, I just have to do everything to make my odds better!

If I could, what would be different?
I have made a thousand mistakes, one after another, and it has hurt a lot of people. I wasn’t always a nice guy, I had my time when I would use people for what they could give me. I would make fun of poor people that didn’t fit in, when I didn’t fit in myself. I wasted peoples time with woo-is-me statuses, the same statuses that I would tell people I was okay. II found that getting attention was the best way to get what I wanted, but when the attention ran out; I was left alone. I sit back and think of my old me, and I want to go back and change him. I wouldn’t mind slapping the smirk off his face when he hurt a cute girl. He wanted vengeance for his mother, he was so dumb. This is the same guy that was talking to three girls at a time, until one found out. Then to save his image, he would leave all three, not realizing that doing so was damaging his image the same.
I am not proud of this Blake, but it is part of my life, and something I can’t change. I have to live up to who I have become, even though I’m not proud of myself, I have made a few huge changes. I will be telling you guys two things that revealed that I was too far gone, and what made me change.

It was eighth grade, I was in the “popular” group, mainly because I was easy to push around, but still I was seen as a badass. I had to keep my image clean, which meant that I had to do what it took to get the laugh. It was a week before one of the dances. My class was a small class, small enough to put us all in one little classroom. There was this girl, though, and her name was Rea. She wasn’t the skinniest, she was actually considered obese. She had a huge crush on me, but she wasn’t cool enough to be with me, anyways this girl had depression. She was always being made fun of, because she was awkward and well overweight. If this were a year later, I would have defended her. But as I said, it was a year to late. We were all talking about going to the dance, I wasn’t going due to not having a date, but Rea wanted to go. She was super excited about going, and already had her dress picked out, even though she didn’t have a date. This was my chance, it was time to make my quota and gain the respect from my “Group.” As she began to talk, I interrupted her. I started by saying her name then I muttered the phrase “You shouldn’t go.” She seemed heartbroken but also confused, so I explained why “You shouldn’t go, because you will fill up the whole gym with your body.” I saw a whole new girl come out, she wasn’t excited, anymore. She shook her head and turned around. I saw her back shake as she began to cry. Instead of the laughter, I expected, I got a few chuckles but mostly a lot of scorns.

No one found me funny that day. I said something way past the line, something that played a part in her cutting. Yes, I caused her to cut. She was admitted into the hospital, missing every dance we had, that year. She wanted to go to one dance, and because of me, she couldn’t. She left our school that year, and didn’t come back. When I saw the real pain that she was going through, I reached out, a year later. I felt horrible as I sent a six page apology to her. I explained that I didn’t want to hurt her, but I wanted the laughs. I was a foolish man, and it almost caused a girl to commit suicide. She accepted my apology, and we talk to this day. From that point on, I stood for those who couldn’t stand by themselves.

The second story is quite simple, me being a stupid teen, It happened also in eight grade. I was talking to this girl, but she wasn’t the prettiest, well I didn’t think so, at the time. She was into me as I was into her, but being popular I couldn’t date her. The guys would never let me live that down, but something more important came up. I ran out of money and minutes on my phone. I knew that this girl was into me, and she had some money. Being a jackass, I told her that if she got me minutes, I would date her.

The next day, she sent me the codes. I took the codes from her, and added them to my phone. I sent her the confirmation about our relationship, but then I broke up with her. She was hurt from my stupidity, but I told her that I said I would date her, not stay in a relationship with her. Even though I said this, she spread around the rumor that we were dating. She took advantage of this mess, and everyone found out. I was a laughing stock of the whole school. I actually liked the girl, but when I found out that she lied to everyone, I started a huge fight and said things I didn’t mean. It took forever to get her to talk to me. When we began to talk again, she was different, she was distant. I can understand why, too. I hurt her, I lied, I took advantage of her, and initially I ruined our friendship.

I didn’t write this post to make everyone think of that Blake. I wrote this post to tell you guys to be real. There is nothing, in life, that should cause you to be anything like I was. If you like someone, then go after that person, it shouldn’t matter if you are cool and they aren’t. That shouldn’t matter. Never judge a book by its cover, never tear someone down for being overweight or ugly. Don’t bully people to feel cool, that isnt the way to live your life. I hated that Blake, he was a complete idiot. As I said before, If I could go back in time I would slap the shit out of him. I almost caused someone to commit suicide, that would have ruined me. Remember that you don’t know what those people are going through, or what they do when you’re not around!

Making a change-
I love that my fans are starting to comment on my blog more, it means a lot to know someone is reading this blog! Recently, a fan sent me a message, telling me that my blog was how she was feeling. It meant a lot to know that my life is like others, and that we all deal with the same troubles. The troubles that we are facing is depression.
I posted a blog, titled “Help,” it was a blog asking for someone to help me deal with my depression. I was feeling down, and didn’t want to do anything. At the time, I didn’t even want to write, but I did, and I had a great response. People were messaging me, commenting, liking, and sharing my post; it was a great day for my blog, but also a great day for me, knowing that someone actually does care. But the best comment, was from a girl, and she told me that she was feeling the same way. I responded to tell her “we should start a group.” This group would be on Facebook, and would help those who don’t have anyone, but who are also dealing with depression. It would be for people to connect with others, like them.
She added me on Facebook, and we began to get to know each other, finding out small details of each other, so that when we start working together, we will have an idea of who we are working with. She is actually really cool, you couldn’t tell that she is depressed, but that’s the amazing thing, you usually can’t. People deal with depression differently, Sam and I deal with our depression the same way, though. We hide it deep down, hoping that no one tries to pry, because if they did we would have to open up, something we don’t like to do.
I have always wanted to do something like this, but never have found the will to go through with it. I saw, making a page like this, taking advantage of the situation, but now I realize, it is actually a great tool. We can use this to help, the shy and depressed, meet new friends. That right there is enough to make the page! We are excited to get this out to you guys, and we hope that you will support it, meaning sharing and liking, we really want to make a difference in the world and this is the best chance that we have!

Things we say about people at work when they break something.
We all have been there. We have all been sitting in a busy restaurant, and all of a sudden someone carelessly drops a plate. The place grows silent, everyone turns their head intently searching for the cause. The employee is embarrassed, as the plate smashes on the ground, but you insist on poking fun with your friends. What are some of the best jokes can we say during these times?
“Good move, afflack.”
“Butterfingers.”
“That is coming out of your paycheck.”
“That was my dang food.”
“Go on, drop the bowl with it.”
“So much for the fine china.”
“There goes that raise.”
“You no get tip, tip pay for plate.” Chinese people.
“Best clean that up.”
“Don’t drop that plate….” “Don’t drop the dun duh duh.” 
It is a shame that accidents happen, well for the employees. I think it is important to show respect, but don’t forget to also take a minute to laugh, maybe even utter one of these phrases. Thanks for taking time to read this, I hope you guys enjoyed.

Lets add some fun.

image

With this blog taking off, I want to introduce a few new ways to contact me, or to interact with me. Impromtdude is great, but there is something missing. There isn’t enough humor on the Facebook page. Though, Impromtdude is a blog, I also want to incorporate funny memes and conversations, into the page. This will put a brand new face on Impromtdude, and give others something to look at, on my page, other than my blog post. Though, it is important to read my blogs, I know some of you already have read it, but want something else to look at. That is why it is important that I start posting more things to Impromtdude, than just my blog post.
I have wondered why my page doesn’t grow, but now I know. It is because I post the same thing on my personal page, as I do on my blogging page. This means that the traffic can stop, at my page, and totally can skip over my blogging page. But this will change, since now, I will be posting memes, but not only memes, I will also be posting vlogs, videos, songs, Thoughts of the day, and much-much more.
On top of all of that, I will also be adding any fans to snapchat, that way you guys can connect with me easier. I will be posting my snapchat name on my page, so feel free to add me, and share with me. I will be open to sharing anyone’s work, pictures, videos, snapchats, anything, as long as we are all respectful, and have a great time while doing this!
I think that we will be able to grow more, now that we have made these changes. I hope that this page can start growing, again. If it does, then we will continue to do this. I won’t even think of the idea, of this not working, because I know it will. I have some of the best fans, ever, and I know they want something more than a blog, they want something to read, laugh to, and share to their friends, which is what they are going to get!

More than 15 million adults use social media to reconnect with old friends, and to stay in touch with fellow family members; but what kind of effect does Social Media really cause? In a research, I found that Social Media has been a great tool to rekindle dormant friendships, eliminates social isolation, and helps one become more creative while also getting more support. But with all the good effects, are there any negative effects? Research suggests Social Media makes one lazy, causes more cyber bullying, and causes one to compare themselves to another.

image

In June of 2014, 74% of adults were using Social Media. They were said to be using the Social media to reconnect with dormant relationships. Facebook is good for one thing, the fact that everyone has it, and that it is very user friendly. You can search for someone, and three seconds later, you are talking to them through the messaging application. This helps those who moved away (years ago) find their long lost friends. With it being so easy to find old friends, Social Media is now the leading way to keep up with social ties, making it a lot easier to make and keep friends.

It is much easier to express yourself over a computer, which makes Social media a great outlet to get out of Social Isolation. With groups for various things, you can find something you like and discuss it with others, who share your same opinions and/or hobbies. Facebook pages are easy to navigate, and there are discussion boards posted, everywhere. Making it very easy to find what you are looking for. The more groups you join, the more friends you will likely make. It is a fantastic way to build new connections, and make life-long friends.

  46% of adults tend to post original photos, videos, and ideas on their social media. When they post original work, they are considered “Creators.” Where 46% share original work, there are 41% that share work of others, these people are called, Curators. 56% of people do both, which means that more than half of the social media world is being creative; they are using their talents to make art and post it. This allows for people to express themselves more, and for others to gain new ideas, and try new things.

So now we know the good things that come from social media. Social media helps reconnect old friends, but also helps make new friends and connections. Also, it helps more than half of 14 million people, become more creative, through creating and sharing their work to the world. But with every good thing, there has to be some kind of bad, but what could be so bad about reconnecting friends, and helping the quiet express themselves?

Social media gives the idea that you no longer have to try! With everyone, at the tips of your callused finger; one might think they no longer have to go out and make new friends. I mean, why would they? They now can make new friends on social media, which requires no human contact and no effort, also you don’t have to wear pants! Sounds GREAT! But that’s the problem, Social Media makes it too easy to connect with people that one will become lazy, and stay inside, all day.

Even with staying inside, one is still at harm when suffering the news feed, of Social media. There is an enemy that stalks their prey, waiting for the right time to devour their souls. These people are called Cyberbullies, one who uses electronic technology to make fun of others, and they are dangerous! In 2013, 42% of teens were falling victim to cyberbullies. The idea of cyberbullying should make you sick; since 1 of 10 people attempt suicide, this is 20% of cyberbullying victims. With 81% of the cyberbullies saying they do it because it’s easier to get away with, should raise every eyebrow.  The only goal these scum have, is to make others feel inferior and worthless. They will take your pictures, videos, and ideas, and use them against you!

Finally, Social Media makes one compare themselves to others. Girls envy other girls profile pictures, wondering why the other girl has more likes, causing the first girl to fall into a depression, thinking what she has to do to get more attention, when the second girl is living a double life. The second girl is on Social media, posting pictures of her boobs, because she doesn’t have anything else to live for. The likes that pour in, are her only friends. She needs the likes to get her through the day. But since the first girl thinks she has the best life, ever, she will now try to become this girl, leading to a lot of heartache. This is the biggest problem with Social media, people live double-lives in order to get likes. They will post how great their lives are, but in reality, it’s as horrible as someone in depression. They might have money, but they are lacking in a family, or they have a great job, but they have too much debt for it to matter. The problem is simple; people want to be accepted, so they will say and do whatever it takes to get the acceptance.

Social media is an amazing place to meet new friends, by sharing the same interest and opinions. This can be done by joining a new page, or even befriending new people. Also, it’s the best place to reconnect with old friends, that you went to school with. You have an idea, this is a great place to find others to help you grow that idea. Social Media has a lot of great things, but it also can become something that we never wanted. With the risk of becoming anti-social in public, or falling into depression because of arrogant bullies, or simply not feeling like you fit in, because you don’t have everything, everyone else does. Social media is a great place, but it can also be a playground in hell, there are a lot of good effects, but also a lot of things that can lead to a disaster. Be careful when you are on social sites, and don’t post anything that might be used against you, later on down the road.

   What has been with me, lately? I haven’t been myself, it’s like something else has taken over, and I can’t control it. Depression has been a strong killer in my life, it’s something that I fight with all the time, and I’m tired of it!
   I want to live my life without being sad, or feeling that I am always drowning. I feel horrible, all the time, and I can’t stop it. I have been fighting a phase, of depression, for a few weeks now. It has been a bad one, it’s been pulling me away from my happiness, but also my passions.
    I haven’t had the passion to write. I have pushed away everything, causing me to lose my happiness. I have been sleeping, alot. I have also started to play ps3, alot more. I see it as a great distraction, away from writing. I need help. I need a good group of friends to help me, a group that will help me conquer this demon.
    I wanted to talk to you guys, in hope that someone will answer my cries, and help me. I hope you don’t judge me, I really do.
