What do you know of distraction? Can you even recognize it when it is right in front of you? Even if you do, do you change anything to make it have meaning in your life?
Do not be confused about the difference between distraction and recreation. That line is all too often blurred and warped into “it is my break time” poor excuse. This applies to all realty shows, soap operas and game shows. They contribute nothing to the betterment of mankind and serve only to keep you dumb.
If it doesn’t improve your life, it is a distraction from the truth. If you are reading my blog solely because you are bored, then don’t bother. If you are reading my blog because you want to consider life and different points of view, you are more than welcomed here.
Do you go on…and damn I hate even typing this, Facebook to read other peoples updates? Please explain to me how that improves your life? Same goes for any other “social media”. Better yet, lets broaden that out to “any media”.
We definitely need to be able to re-create ourselves every now and then, no questions there. It is when you blur the line from true recreation to plain old being lazy. Distracted from truly improving your life.
If you are not actively trying to improve your life, you have no place in mine.
All things aside, that is the key reason my current relationship is on its way out. The real kicker is when I point out how they could help themselves, it gets blatantly ignored. I don’t do ignorance. I don’t do lazy.
When I find someone who gets that, I’m ecstatic. I’ve found some here on WordPress. Just about all the ones I did were in a nearly identical situation as I am now. Theses are the ones who are no longer distracted and are much more awake than most. For that, I honor them and their awareness. You know who you are.
