The Internet Is Cruel!

Warning: This post contains satire with a deeper meaning purpose. It includes some bad fashion and exposure of body parts.

They say that we are our own biggest critics. Our own worst nightmare. We attack ourselves constantly with a big red marker. We access the ability to edit ourselves after every move we make in life.

Growing up, we rely on teachers or parents to offer us positive reinforcement, or even that friend who no matter what you do will still say you are a great person. Or that you look great in that top.

But there is one major culprit who loves just telling us what to do. Loves telling us how to act, tells us to express ourselves, this culprit criticises our every move. Do you know what I am talking about?

Yes – the internet.

For example, I’m sure you would have tried to set up a password before for an online account. Every move you make is the wrong move:

I hadn’t even written my password yet and its already jumping all over me with criticisms! AND, if its not too short it is mean to you:

How rude!

And the internet told me that I would look good in these pants, Facebook backed it up and posted it on every single page I loaded like a good friend supporting a purchase:

BUT THEY LIED.

So how can we trust the internet? How can we trust the internet’s opinion, perspective or style?

By doing what I am doing right now – hacking in the the internet and telling all of you what the internet is really like, telling the truth – exposing what is real! I’m not saying don’t use it. I’m just saying, criticise its every move. Evaluate every loading page.

And mostly, don’t take it too personally. You have a choice. You don’t have to accept everything that the internet says or tells you to do. Go outside, listen to what nature tells you or even just talk to yourself, after all you know you best 🙂

Peace out

TLG.
