During this pandemic (Covid 2020 AKA The Rona AKA Big Rona AKA The destroyer of 2020) I feel like a lot of things have clicked for people. Clicked in the sense that they aren’t forcing happiness or letting things around them give them a false sense of happiness anymore. That false sense of happiness you get from hanging around with the wrong people or seeing fake happiness online. We are in a pandemic which is causing people to disconnect from the negatives of the world and just be in their space.
Playing off the topic I wrote back in 2017, I felt this would happen. The fact that people don’t realize we are all just the same, human, is beyond me. As humans, do you think everyone should be afforded the same rights? As humans, do you think that we all should be treated the same? If you agree with these statements but proceed to treat another human as trash because of the color of their skin, you’re the problem.
Don’t let social media or things you see in society rush you into a false sense of happiness. Just because one person is happy, doesn’t mean you will be happy in the same way. I personally like staying in my bubble and disconnecting from society from time to time. It grounds me and reminds me who I am. I think that so many things that are considered a societal norm, people try to live by. Live your own life, in your own way because you choose to and not because society tells you.
Have you ever taken a moment to go through people’s social media and see the hashtags they have posted under pics? It will take you on an adventure that your clearly aren’t ready for. You can search anything via hashtags and are able to see the number of things that people are using hashtags for. Sometimes the hashtags don’t relate to the topic but it’s just interesting to see. Whenever I am traveling or going somewhere I don’t look up the place I search the hashtag. This allows me to search for parties, restaurants and different events going on in that area. You would be surprised to know that people hashtag everything.
I know a major marketing tool for some industries is to use hashtags and when events happen tell everyone to post pics using hashtags. I went to my friends baby shower this past weekend and they asked everyone to use a specific hashtag. They had a monitor that showed the pics people posted with the hashtag. Technology has come a long way and it’s great that we can tie in different situations/experiences with a hashtag for further viewing. Sometimes instead of going through my social media timeline I go through hashtags that are posted by people to see how they view the world.
As technology continues to evolve the method for accessing things will change with it. Are you ready to grow with it? Create your own hashtag for life and live it. You never know what you might see and who might see it but get up and hashtag everything.
