Social media has simplified the way I think, and not in the good way.
Twitter made me think in short statements under 140 characters that complexity isn’t welcome for…I can’t even finish that sentence anymore. I used to write like I knew what I was doing, like I could control my thoughts and set them down on digital paper - I used to write every single detail of what I was feeling, now they’re just little bursts of emotions without further explanation.
Facebook gave my thoughts lesser meaning with those status updates that no one really cares about. Just getting the message out into outer space where no one can hear you - that’s the end goal here - and if someone did hear, you’re lucky.
Instagram made me take photographs for granted. I used to see beauty in the tiny details and frame them for other people to see what I saw. I forgot my roots and just went out clicking the shutter button on my phone until it looks right.
They are the tiny details I noticed about the bad changes in me. They’re my little problems, little screws I need to tighten. I should learn from this.
