Be at Peace By Eliminating the Junk

There are times when one really can avoid being in a stressful situation. The best way to do so is to remove the toxins. Avoid spending long periods with toxic individuals and in toxic “environments.” There will be some who will intentionally try to cause stress for others. If the environments which are riddled with toxins are online then spend less time online. Friendships shouldn’t consist of individuals who are trying to cause problems for others. Friends try to help one another and encourage one another. If they’re not doing so then they’re not friends and can be considered as toxic.

“A lot of people” may end up being under pressure because they continue to allow persons to cause havoc in their lives. There should be no tolerance for such behavior because individuals will continue doing what they’re allowed to do. There should be removals. If they’re on social media then there should consider blocking or avoiding the individuals altogether. No person should allow harassment and should report bullying as well as harassment. There are some who continue to be bothersome. They’ll continue attacking others perhaps to gain their attention or to get the individuals to cease whatever it is that the persons are displeased with.

“If the behaviors continue then there should be complaints filed and in some cases the persons may need to be sued.” Peace has to be generated somehow. It’s really sad that so many choose to harass others and not spend their lives engaging in positive activities. For some they haven’t yet discovered how to generate peace. There is no reason that any person should be bullied or constantly taunted on social media platforms or in any other area. The platforms should be held accountable if the bullying continues. Be at peace by limiting time spent online. Don’t allow any person to continuously cause distress in anyway.

Find peace and do what’s necessary in order to live peacefully. There are some who may not understand when communicated. If the law steps in then perhaps the individuals will stop doing what they’re doing. Yes, there was a time when navigating online wasn’t a hassle but these days so many take to platforms just to harass others. No need to engage in such activities and if there are no solutions then take another course of action. Find the most effective ways to remain sane.

Do you Know me!

Hello everyone. How many times have we judged others based on what we’ve heard or what we think we know? Huh? Well, it happens all the tine, someone basing their information by hear say. When we do judge or misjudge. We can look like donkeys. Everyone makes mistakes but we have to think before acting.

Judging happens so often. It happens regularly in the on and offline worlds. A lot of virtual judging takes place. How well can we know someone on a virtual level? People can say anything and will say anything. People are getting bullied based on what someone says. It’s not fair and we really have to consider others.

The judging can ocur within families. An upset family member could say something about another and then the balls continues to roll. If they post it on social media people will immediately believe what’s said but won’t investigate first. “Get to Know Others Before Coming to a Conclusion.” It’s impossible to know someone based on a social media setting.

We may feel as if we know someone through emails, text messages, and through social media but really? We should get to know people outside of social media. Think about it. People can post anything on social media and on forums. If you never sat down with them then you’ll never really know them. We may become so in tuned with the virtual setting that we forget what reality is. Imagine you getting bullied because people said things that were untrue. How would you feel? Well, this happens so often, and it doesn’t just happen on social media, it happens in places like the church. Imagine that!

It’s amazing how people will settle for some information they never bothered to investigate. If you don’t know then ask and if you still don’t know then perhaps it’s not meant for you to know. It’s time that we try to get to know people and if we don’t want to get to know them then we should just let them be. Do you know me?!

Somethings are a Blackout

Sometimes we end up shaking our heads with all that arises in this world. People being virtually attacked, others being envious, and environments becoming gloomy. What next? Who knows? No one can predict what people will come up with next. I wonder if social media suffered a blackout, how would people react, what would they do?

There would be ni so clues for them to spill out. Isn’t amazing that people get a kick out of making other people’s lives miserable? What has this world come to? Are people going “mad?” It appears so. Perhaps the whole network should go black. How would people handle that?

Sometimes it’s best to step away. Take a break so that you don’t blackout. No dizzy spells. Finding those peaceful places and gaining some sunshine would help. We don’t need to suffer from craziness due to too much social media exposure.

Don’t become a victim. No one needs to weep because people can’t stop charging at others. When will we unite? Probably won’t happen but shouldn’t we try? Who can afford to blackout because of ridiculous behavior? Lets be apart of unification. Are you ready for that? Again! ┬áProbably not. It would help ro put some effort in it.

What are people trying to accomplish. Are they setting up their own plan? Have they misinterpreted what’s being said? Social media is getting out of hand. What ever happened to the friendly atmosphere? Puzzled. Perhaps things wil get better rather quickly. At least that’s what some are hoping.

I wonder if a blackout occured, how long would it stay that way, would things change afterwards? We could only be so hopeful. The way things are going, we could face more chaos, that’s “not good at all.” We don’t need it. We could do without it. There needs to be some “peace”on social media and all around us.

Bye Bye Social Media

People are deciding to take a hike when it comes to social media. There was a time when social media was a hang out for teens. The teens have migrated to other sites like Kik, Instagram, and Vine. They’re no longer interested in Facebook. I know this because I have teenagers. They think Social Media has gone to the dogs. Well, they at least think this about Facebook, they’re curious about adult behavior. Although some of them are young adults, they’re puzzled about adult attraction to some of these Social Media sites, I can understand their views.

Social Media seems to have no rules. Some add more protection than others. Of course we could use some moderating on Social Media. It seems no one really cares what goes on in the Social Media scene. Maybe some do but either are afraid to show it or just don’t want to get involved. Social Media can be a great place, a loving atmosphere, and a real way to connect.

Some adults have admitted to taking long breaks from Social Media. They either became bored or annoyed. It seems family connections and frienships have suffered through Social Media use. Being exposed to anything for long periods of time can be damaging, especially if the environment is chaotic. Those environments are unhealthy.

Cyber bullying seems to make it’s way on every Social Media site. Some sites are set up in a way that some may not attempt to be aggressive. Some users have felt disrespected when it comes to Social Media. It’s not the sites but the users. If compassion floated all around these sites then there would be less issues. Until founders jump in and stop the chaos, it’s possible it could continue, hopefully people will want to get along because they’re tired of the battles. What does Social Media offer you?

Are you Ready for Some Promotion

In order to gain exposure to your business, blog, or books. You need to “promote.” Without promotion, a business can fail, books may stay on the shelf. That’s no good. When you promote your work. Do so with a “smile.” Be a happy promoter. Sitting back and watching the tides came in won’t help with exposure. One has to be willing to find the best promotion tools.

How Should I Promote?

Promote aggressively at times and continue to use the most effective social networks. Use catchy phrases when promoting. Have fun promoting. It doesn’t have to be a tiring job. Some people choose to put lots of money in promoting. It doesn’t have to be that way. Some may choose to promote on two social media sies but if you want to gain more exposure you should use at least 4 effective sites.

If one decides to put money into promoting then they should set a budget. Without a budget, a business owner can over spend, and a author could lose more money than received. That would be uneffective. If you’re not sure where you should start promoting. You should do some research. What works for one. May not work for another but social media is a great way to promote your business and products.

You can also promote offline. Offline promotion works as well. Some businesses will allow you to promote your business, books, or blogs but of course there may be a catch. They may want you to do the same for them. Don’t get bent out of shape if you’re asked to do this. That’s how it is in business. Anyone working online or has a business, understands that they will need to be active, promoting involves communicating. Being silent won’t get the job done. When I say, “being silent,” I mean sitting back and expecting things to just happen. Do what works but promote.

Is it Worth it

A lot of people are becoming well known through social media. I viewed a show called the Westbrooks and it made me think how social media affects people. Is it worth hanging around social media when it creates stress. One of the sisters on the show was weeping because of the comments she views from some of her Instagram fans or haters which ever one prefers.

Where does the social media career path lead? How did this whole think come about? Lets face it, people can be cruel, and it seems social media has no boundaries. I’ve read numerous articles where psychologists claim that too much social media exposure causes depression. Too much of a whole lot of things can cause a meltdown.

If social media is causing more heartache than happiness then one should consider limiting their time on social media or getting rid of it altogether. No social media site is worth risking one’s mental health. If it isn’t beneficial then social media needs to be on your keep away list. Of course not all social media sites are the same. Some sites will set “boundaries.”

Those social media sites that allow dysfunctional behaviors to persist are allowing it because they benefit from it. There’s a particular social media site that seems to have very little rules. Can you guess what site that is? Did you say, “Facebook,” you were right.

Not protecting members could lead to numerous lawsuits. I’m not sure if founders are concerned about that but they should be. The fact is, the anonymity allows people to use bullying tactics in order to intimidate members, sad but true. Should people be concerned when signing up to social media sites? Yes, the risk of private information being exposed is high, and there’s not enough safety measures.

The Best way to Deal With Difficult People

Difficult people exist, some of us are in contact with them everyday, but how do we deal with difficult people? Of course they will make you upset at some point but the best ways to deal with them is to ignore them. Yes, ignoring them will give you a peace of mind, don’t allow them to push your buttons because they will try in fact they love trying to push anyone’s buttons.

If ignoring them doesn’t work, and they’re on social media then you should block them, you don’t want them trying to harass you, or try to prank you. If blocking them doesn’t work then you may want to leave the social media site that’s filled with difficult people. Some people are going to be difficult no matter what.

If you want peace, find places where there are little to no difficult people, there’s plenty of places that have happy people circling about. Difficult people could create havoc on and offline so spend little time with them. If you’re the praying type, pray for them, prayer works. Some people are unaware that they’re difficult and in that case, you should tell them, and perhaps they will turn things around.

No one wants to deal with a difficult person or people. They will cause fatigue. Some people have lost “awesome friendships” because they were so difficult. Why spend your life dealing with that when you can spend it “smiling” and “happy?” Don’t allow difficult people to weigh you down.

If a particular social media site has “a lot of difficult people” then it’s best to go where there’s “positive people.” You will be “happy” and good things will happen for you. Don’t be filled with irritation and aggravation because you’ve came in contact with a lot of difficult people on a particular social media site. Where there’s bad apples. There’s good apples and you will be so “thankful” when you spend time with “loving” people.
