Social media. What was meant for good, like communicating with friends and family has now become a complete attention-seeker and competition. Some people feel the need to post their every action on Facebook. People go Facebook live for any and everything. Every action does not require a reaction, and, as the old saying goes, if you do not have anything nice to say, do not say anything at all. Going online cussing each other out and I am a better woman than her or I am a better man than him. Come on ya’ll, really? Even if that is true, everything is not meant to be put on Facebook.
Freddy Krueger is the scariest yet best horror villains of all time. The first movie was made in 1984, which happens to be the same year was born. I saw the movie in 1992. I was 9 years old. I was scared to go to sleep, even scared to go to the bathroom. I think I used the bathroom on myself that night. I have the first Nightmare On Elm Street movie on DVD in my house. I was completely terrified of a man with claws that kills people in their sleep. For some strange reason, at a flea market once, I bought a poster of him. What in the world did I do that for? Every night, I was convinced that he was going to jump out of that poster at any minute.
I believe that love is very difficult. I love you is easy to say. There are people that meet and say its love at first sight. There are so many love stories that I see on tv that I absolutely admire. There was this couple. They met in a laundromat. I think he was single. He said, I need someone nice. Her husband happened to be an alcoholic. She left her husband. Well, they ended up getting married. They have been married 55 years. I thought to myself, that is amazing. Another story. It was on Facebook. There was a couple, aged 105 and 102 I believe. 86 years of marriage. They are still in their right minds and their secret was: love.
Mental illness is something no one wants to talk about. Its real. Some people are ashamed of it, do not want to talk about it and get laughed at it. It is no laughing matter. People take their lives in behind humility and shame. Some people suffer in silence. It is sad when people feel like they have no one to talk to but unfortunately, that’s how things are these days. People hide their feelings for fear of being called crazy and sometimes fear of being called stupid or fear of losing friends.
We only get one life. As people, we all have a different journey, with different experiences.
No one goes down the same path, makes the same decisions, makes the same mistakes, or even plans out what their life will be like. Everyone has a past as well.
