Social Distancing INCLUDES Social Media

This is gonna be short and sweet. Maybe not so sweet. 

 

Maybe not all that short. But pretty short. 

So I'm in this dowsing group (that I looove) and a member said that she was told to build  her confidence . . . and that she should 'stand up for herself more'. I thought to myself,

"It actually takes more real confidence to just consider the source and let things go, and not feel you must be on the defensive at all."

 

Just seems to perpetuate the same old 'elephant talk'  . . . 

 

Why do so many people feel like they are perfectly justified in imposing their opinion on someone who didn't ask for it?

 

I've even heard 'keyboard (and IRL wannabe) evangelists' who feel that they are performing a public service by attempting to stuff their views down someone else's throat against their will. 

 

 

It's come to my attention that many of the same people who virtue-signal about social distancing  are virtually violating the personal space of another, and infecting everyone around them with a virus called control, fear, shame.

 

If you want to make the world better, send love.

Not judgment.


And if you are a lower vibrational being with no sense of humor who wants everyone to share in your fear and misery . . . don't be surprised when you hit a big block wall of your own design.

 

Your thoughts create. Make them hopeful, optimistic and joyful.

 

Or socially distance your ass

the hell away from me . . .

Hello Candice - some seem to have never had  or have chosen not  to use the self edit/control function as thoughts form in their mind and exit through their mouth.   The pause function can work wonders - actually maybe that's the real "five second rule".

Candice,

We have social distancing from social media for a long, long time. Bad and negative create a momentum those who spread it and those who fight it spread it also, it is one big negative avalanche with great momentum...A

I don't pay any attention to all the fear mongers and those who want to shame  control or make me wrong  I just leave alone and let their negative thoughts create their world.  In a sense I've been socially distancing most of my life!!  LOL

Hi Candice- two traits I loathe...being hypocritical and arrogance. Put them together and you have one big pile of stuff I don't want near me.

Good evening Candice A. Donofrio ,

So well said! Sending out judgment vibes never work..only annihilates others. You are so right..sending optimistic, hopeful and joyful vibes make a difference in your own lives and others. Some won't get that but that's okay, let them wallow in negativity!

From the agent that forewarned me about following her on FB, this is the perfect blog.  I love how you turn a phrase.  It makes me smile every time I read one.  I am glad I ignored your warning.  Btw-That is a perfect song choice for 2020.

So many people feel the 'need' to bash others over the head with their ideas. Social media makes it harder for us to shut them off/down whatever. It seems that they are moving at us at a faster pace. No wonder why everyone feels frazzled.

BRAVO!  I have socially and physically distanced myself from many over the years and even more over the last year.  If they can't be part of the light in my life I'm not entering their darkness.

I spend many hours a week with people who are in fear for whatever reason . . . clearing them and me and my house and the dog is a daily routine these days . . . I've blocked and deleted so many who just want to be angry or scared or virtuous. I'm happy, fearless and naughty AF!

Great post!  I go into the groups I belong to knowing full well that there are plenty of volunteers in them, offering themselves up as victims, for this or that ...an action they can't control that someone else did.  Let the judgment begin.  And it usually starts with how awful and wrong someone is.  It's tiring and a a terrible place to start thinking. They want so badly to make the world think like them.  Not happening.  Whether the topic is masks, two hour open house windows as the only time a listing is available...it's just tiring.  The best way to be angst free is to remove yourself from the cesspool.  Focus on you and what you value.  Take the dog for a walk or go put the cat on your lap and pet it.

'Volunteers offering themselves up as victims' whew! Way too much of that going on!

Hi Candice A. Donofrio

I can't agree more with your sentiments.  With all the negativity in the world, I do whatever I can to create a bubble or force field (if you will), of positive energy.  When that door of negative energy opens.  I slam it shut!

People who attempt to shove their beliefs (whatever they are) down someone's throat via social media are never successful. Sitting around a campfire with a glass of bourbon chatting about issues? They might make a dent. Telling someone what to think on any social media site? Nope.

How did I miss your post Blondo Beauty? I love how you put the absolute truth out there. The fact is, we are all going to die but I want to enjoy my time here rather than someone stealing it away for their own selfish purposes!
