the first time a video of a baby cracking up over bubbles did not make my day was when I saw it on Facebook right after I read news about a high schooler that was kidnapped and almost raped in my hometown, she committed suicide to prevent the rape,

trauma from social media

the first time a video of a baby cracking up over bubbles did not make my day was when I saw it on Facebook

right after I read news about a high schooler that was kidnapped and almost raped in my hometown, she committed suicide to prevent the rape,

social media, is so great,

I get to talk to my old school mates and teachers,

I get to spend hours watching funny videos about babies dogs and cats and to cultivate myself with pop culture

I get to say happy birthday to every single person I've ever come to know and give them an emoji present that I did not pay for,

not to mention all the food porn I get to see on a daily basis

but I'm never warned about the horrific news that slap me in the face and ruin every aspect of my day, week or even life,

one second I'm watching a video of how to instantly get rid of acne

and the next I am taken by the shoulders and shook till I feel my bones cracking,

I am constantly reminded about all the monstrous things people are capable of doing,

of the fact that anything could happen to anyone at anytime, and that if I don't rush and do something about it, i will definitely lose

i'm reminded of the fact that i'm helpless, in a world that preys on the innocent and weak,

social media has prepared me for the worst, it has also made me anxious to be there for someone,

whatever it is that you need from me, whatever it is that i can provide, i am here for you,

i will breathe and live to help you thrive and blossom
