I really don’t know where to begin…
I have a growing frustration with not only what I feel is the dumbing down of America, but the mental gluttony known as instant gratification.
The 24 hour news cycle has ruined us. Gone are the days of having a regular conversation, without fear of offending someone. Everyone is so easily offended. It’s to the point where people feel like they can fuss at you, then get mad that you defended yourself — Or had an original thought.
We can’t even talk sports without talking about a players money, or car, or who they may be dating. What rapper they were seen hanging out with!
What happened to the world?
I know technology. The ultimate gift & Curse.
No one has people skills any longer. Yes that’s a skill!
You know why customer service has diminished? The cashier is mad you walked up, and they had to put their phone down!
I’m not sure if I should write when pissed. But I can no longer sit here and wonder where my place is in the world. Standing idle, feeling out of place because I have the nerve to have my own opinion, and I’m not the type to use emojis instead of actual letters. EVEN ACTUAL SO-CALLED JOURNALIST ARE USING EMOJIS!!!!
One can’t be out of touch if they know what’s going on, and recognizes when authenticity is being suppressed right?
Watching people dumb things down for ratings and/or money.
I realize I have the option to take the easy way out, follow the path of fuckery and live life on my terms faster than what current pace is.
I understand I am last of the Dinosaurs. Hell, people cut from my cloth are in the same boat as libraries and book stores.
To be honest, the people on WordPress keep me sane. The people on WordPress actually read. Can form a sentence. I’m thankful for this community. It let’s me know, there are still people who think like me.
We at The Couch Sports have recently monetized, but seeing the fuckery the competition puts out is a bit frustrating. Going up against the machine. Corporate backed bullshit. But, such is life for those who choose to create their own path.
Life is 10% what happens to you, and 90% how you react to it
Ok, I’m re-centered now.
If it was easy, everyone could do it.✌🏿
