Social media is a tricky thing because it cracks the world right open when you use it like we do.
There are so many nooks and crannies in which to hide or misconstrue. There are so many ways to misunderstand and ways to feel things that aren’t real. But sometimes our intuition is correct, but there is no way to know if it is unless we ask for clarification, and oftentimes we can't ask anyone or there isn't a trusted source. It seems to train us to not trust our intuition. However, that isn't always the case.
I also think about how much social media has affected my life for good, and I feel thankful for all the friends and family I've grown closer to because of this tool. Actually, my life has been quite transformed over the past three years because of social media and the connections it has created in my everyday life. I don't even recognize the person I was before the spring of 2013, and I am filled with appreciation for how simply and wonderfully change made its way into my world.
We are able to discover new things, new knowledge, and new people, making life something to look forward to, wonderfully transforming us little by little at the click of a button.
