When I walk into a grocery store, I avoid what does not appeal to me – the pet food aisle, the baby goods, the canned foods. When I walk into a department store, I have no use for the men’s department, the petites, the evening gowns. When I go to a craft show or an antique sale, I avoid any and all that doesn’t appeal to me – jewelry, pottery, paintings.
Likewise, with social media.
I have no tolerance for foul language, graphic videos, and opinionated slander. I have no use for hate, anger, and bullying.
Social media “sells” to me, so I have the choice to avoid them, “unfriend” or “block” them, or erase them all together from my feed.
“Persons reap what they sow,” so I will feed my soul and mind what I aspire to be.
I refuse to be bullied into accepting what others (who are no better than I) think is cool, trendy, or viral.
I keep abreast of the news, I check sources, I keep an open mind, but I also want to live a healthy, happy, hospitable life.
And that is how I will start 2018. I hope you join me in this venture.
