I was thinking about where I would be without social media. Sure “back in the day” I passed notes in class as the teacher was writing on the chalk board; or in typing class as I was learning the keys would type a message. Writing is something I think I have always done in one way or another. But I’ve also crumpled up a lot of it too.
Social Media, has helped me and in the very beginning led me down a path of hell. I felt like I could hide behind the screen and say what I wanted and not have to own the words. Now, as I learn to live with a mental illness with medication and therapy, I am better able to own my actions and take responsibility for the consequences of the words that would have spewed out of my mouth.
Twitter I don’t use a whole lot, I find it one dimensional. I’m learning about Instagram, but again its just another outlet for pictures and such. Tumbler, I could go on etc.
In terms of reaching people in sharing my blog, social media has helped a lot and it has shown how far we have come, yet, I’d still give a moment to pass that note in class.
