We live in such a strange time. Don’t get me wrong, it is an amazing time and true change is coming, but for now, it is just so weird. I noticed a weird thing on instagram the other day; Kim Kardashian got about 2 million likes on a picture of her going to a store. I would imagine that she doesn’t actually know 2 million people, and that number is outrageous. Especially considering that I know roughly a couple hundred people, I think, and I rarely get over 6 likes. Not that I would ever compare myself to a Kardashian, on the contrary I would try not to ever let that occur, but the situation itself did hit me as strange.
I am generous with my likes. Some people probably even think that I stalk them because I like their stuff so much. I just want people to know that, even if I disagree with what they are saying, that I still support them and that I care.
I think it’s so important these days to make sure you show your support, especially since we have so many ways to show support publicly and without very much effort at all.
I mean, as I’m scrolling, it takes only the slightest bit more of an effort to hit the “like” button or double tap something as I go. I know how much it means to me. I’ve heard that children these days live or die by the likes, and that to me, is totally understandable. I mean, this is the world we’ve created for them.
Older generations have a lot to say about these younger generations, and I say, be proud of the people they have become, it’s exactly what we set them up to be. I’m not too worried about the young people though – they’re the ones that will actually end up saving the world. 😉
And I cannot wait for that period in time… but for now I will just continue to hit that like button as much as possible because, why not?
