EVERYTHING is a 2-sided coin.
I believe social media is no different.
Take away twitter, take away blogs and instagram and tik tok, etc… People will STILL find a way to hurt each other.
I think everything we have created or discovered is usable for good or evil. It all depends on the choices we make.
Like guns. Take away guns, make them illegal – bad people will get them illegally and if they cannot, they will use a knife, a brick, their nearest blunt object. If someone has decided they’re going to kill someone, the objects available won’t typically change their mind about killing them. Where there is a will, there is a way.
Guns and social media are both TOOLS.
How we use them matters.
And I will always, ALWAYS, opt to have social media even though it spreads pain. Humans will always find a way to spread pain (I don’t understand why, but it’s true). But look at the good social media can do.
THE POSITIVE POTENTIAL IS LIMITLESS.
How would the isolated, abused, and young human being know there are good people in the world? That there ARE people that exist that truly care? Or people that have been through the same thing and
They made it through and you can too.
Without social media I wouldn’t have known.
Social media connects us and HUMAN CONNECTION is the only way to live this life. Isolation hurts most of us. It is literally a way to torture another human.
We need each other. And social media can connect us.
I will keep it because there is goodness that comes of it. And I want to squeeze all the goodness out of this world there is to find. We deserve to enjoy this life, we deserve hope and inner peace.
How has social media helped you?￼
