Truth: Not Really Alone

One of my biggest fears is to be alone sometimes especially when I’m going through a stressful situation or I just don’t feel up to par. Although some argue that media makes us more alone than ever, as far as my situation goes, I have to disagree. When it’s quiet and dark and it seems as if the whole world is asleep but me, I want to turn on the tv and watch a good show. When I’m running down the street and all I can hear is my feet hit the pavement an my thoughts scattered throughout my mind, I want to put my headphones in and instead hear my favorite song. When I miss my boyfriend and long to see him, I want to pull my iPhone out and FaceTime him. The point of all this being that I heart media because it allows me an escape from loneliness.
