Staying Inside My Own Bubble
Unfortunately the society we are living in today is becoming more and more... *sigh* less desirable for lack of nice and non-vulgar words. Having a difference of opinion is not the same that it used to be. When two people disagreed about something, they would simply agree to disagree.
However, that is no longer the case in this modern era. Having a difference of opinion will not only spew hatred from the opposing side, individuals have become entitled beyond belief to try and ruin someone's life just because of it. This is why staying inside my own bubble has become more of my lifestyle preference than any other time in my life.
I have watched people on social media who do not know someone at all, yet dislike/hate said person (individual lone wolf) opinion(s) and literally try to affect their real lives. In all honesty, it is quite disgusting to see people threaten someone (or their family/associates) just because of having an opinion that does not fit their own. Yes, I do not like what some people say sometimes, that does not mean I am going to waste my time, find out where they work, and try to get them fired.
This is one of the major benefits that I see working for myself in this day and age. I can have my opinion about anything that I want, and no one can say "e-mail his boss and get him fired!" If you are one of those people who think it is okay to ruin someone's life just because they don't agree with your opinion, you can reach my boss via e-mail at (email@example.com).
If I don't like what they say, the only time I comment is when I know the person (friend) is fine with holding a grown adult/logical conversation about it. However, to others whom I know never think they are wrong (or have no care to hear someone else's point of view), I keep on scrolling down my news feed and continue on with my day. How hard is that to do?
Of course many people think differently when it comes to how Harambe the gorilla should or should not have been killed, same sex relationships, religion (all of them), and the presidential candidates. People are becoming so "entitled" that they say things on Facebook (mostly) along the lines of this...
"If you think (insert anything, literally anything here) is right/wrong, then get off of my friends list because I do not need you in my life."
Even if I agree with that person's opinion, I still remove myself from their friends list. I am not dumb enough to think all of my friends (in real life or on Facebook whom will eventually become "in real life" friends) have to agree with my every word/opinion/perspective on life. We can disagree about anything all day and night, but if you are a good friend, then you are a good friend (plain and simple... at least to me).
Essentially I have always been a mix between an introvert and an extrovert. There are moments when all I wanted to do was get out of the house, go party with my friends, talk to strangers at a book store, and go to an outside event when possible. Then there are times when I just want to be left alone. Sitting at home and watch a ton of documentaries or watch old episodes of my favorite anime (Dragonball Z, Pokemon, Fairy Tale, and others) with some great food is amazing to me!
With all of the crazy things going on in society today, I find my introvert side becoming more of the majority in comparison to the extrovert side.
I wonder am I becoming more of an introvert just because of how society is so lost right now or just because (and I can't believe I am getting ready to say this)... because I am getting older haha! Either way, I am pretty content with knowing that I can have fun and stay entertained in my own bubble just as much as I can outside of it (if not more fun).
How are you when it comes to being inside of your own bubble? Do you prefer spending more time inside of it, outside of it or 50/50?
