Break Time

I'm taking a bit of a social media break.

I'm off Facebook, Twitter, and now, Blogger for an unspecified amount of time. I feel a bit overexposed to the lives and experiences of other people. We all pick and chose how to represent ourselves on such sites and determine how much we will let others into our little corner of the world. I don't feel as though I have overexposed myself necessarily (shocking, I know) but recently I've had some disappointing experiences through the use of various media. These minor hiccups are based on expectations I've allowed myself to place on others, which were based on how they choose to portray themselves.

That's not fair.

I should definitely not be holding anyone up to these invisible expectations. So I guess that is the main reason I need to walk a way for a bit. I need to disconnect from the digital world to help me reconnect with people.

I have several blog posts scheduled so please keep checking back in. I'm sure I'll be back blogging sooner than anything else because I lurve this dang thing! 

Judge away if you feel so inclined.

Good luck! Sometimes we all need a break for various reasons. I'll miss your blog posts and hilarious FB statuses! :) I'll be glad when you are back. Have Fun! :)

Don't you know pretty much most of the population questions their self worth. Thats why they don't always act in beautiful ways. You can choose to let it effect you and become cynical and jaded or you can continue to see them for their potential. Thats what they truly need. Through my experience doing both (becoming jaded or deciding to see their potential)the later brings more happiness. Additionally when you see people as beautiful "they act in beautiful ways." If they act really retarded hide them so you can continue to see their best when in contact with them. That is why 75% of my friends on facebook are hidden.
