I was involved in a conversation on Twitter a few weeks ago and I noticed that it was easy to misinterpreted the messages from others. Although the topic was very relevant to me, I withdraw myself out of the conversation because of me not wanting to communicate with others when I don’t get the full context and thus might misinterpreted the message of the other person or that I am misinterpreted.
I have a preference for talking to people in real life, where I can also see their non-verbal communication and where there is enough time to have a real conversation on things that matter; could be personal or things that matter in this world in general. Also to laugh and hang out with eachother.
Lately I was having the thought of wanting to quit with social media and when I investigated this thought a bit further, I saw how much I am wanting to spend more time with people in real life and less on social media. This interview supported me with my questions about the whole point. It made me realize that balance is key between real life and social media, to find balance between excercising and sitting on a chair behind my laptop for quite some time and indeed, to find balance between meeting people on social media and in real life. That last one made me realize that I was creating an imbalance between spending too much time on surfing the internet while on the other hand I really am missing having actual real life interactions with people more. Hanging out with them outside of my house, engaging in activities in nature or in the city, at least spending time with eachother.
What I am going to do is to find a solution that fits me personally with my interests and responsibilities so I can find more balance between social media and real life.
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed to create an imbalance between spending time on social media and participating in activities in real life.
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to create an imbalance between spending time behind my laptop surfing the internet and exercising my body, where I ignore my body and as a result of that, creating consequences that aren’t beneficial for it.
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed to ignore my body when it’s communicating with me that it wants more exercising and I am aware of it.
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to walk around with this empty feeling when I surf the internet and at the same time ignore my wish for having more real life contact with people than I have now and to not search for a solution that fits me personally and my responsibilities.
When and as I am aware of me spending to much time on social media, I stop and breath. I will investigate my thoughts and apply self-forgiveness and self-correction on my realisations. I will push myself to do something else in a way that is more effective and supportive.
I realize that I can balance my participation on social media and meeting people in real life just by taking action on this point and so;
I commit myself to spend more time with people in real life and less on social media by taking action and arrange meetings.
I commit myself to take action on the exercise point so I will support my body with more movement that will lead to more strength and a better condition than it is now.
