Social Media is a waste of time …

The whole discussion of fundamental issues on Social Media is a waste of time, as rarely people are interested in deep thinking, questioning own beliefs or investing time in details. At the end many just claim one thing, because they are frustrated about something completely different and only shallowly related to the issue, or just because they are seeking attention, approval or a desire to belong to a group. All being simple substitutes for loneliness and a sense of worthlessness and having nothing to do with a passion for discovery, the joy of learning, embracing the humility of being wrong, growing with gratitude by experiencing awe for the limitlessness of life.

How ironic, that writing this may raise the exact same question of whether the author is lonely and is seeking for attention as this feeling of no-one being truly listening might show a desire for finding a group of people to belong to who may be more appreciative.

And once you get into this recursive thinking, you are lost. Unless you start the path to craziness as a way out by thinking in meta-terms about the rationale behind ranting, questioning people’s motives for presumably not being into deep thinking and allegedly seeking attention.

At the end all you have done is switching from one Social Media Platform (Twitter) to another Social Media Platform (Medium) in order to rationalize your beliefs by associating the difference in the length of text allowed to be written with the intelligence of the readers as a mean to suppress the deeper understanding of the flawed thinking that triggered the rant in the first place. Probably because of frustration about something completely different and only shallowly related to the issue.

By that time procrastination has worked.

Surprisingly the sheer number of people who do relate to the experience of procrastination is staggering and their recognition will give you attention and a sense of belonging. From that you will have developed a passion for discovery, experienced the joy of learning, embraced the humility of being wrong, and you will have grown with gratitude by experiencing awe for limitlessness to the stupidity of your own life.
