Why I have to love my media

Media is so involved in our life that when I was posed this question my mind went blank, its involvement in my growth and my everyday life feels as natural as breathing automatically, my relationship with media is almost seamless since at this point it’s just a part of me. I can’t tell if I like it or hate it as I wouldn’t be able to imagine a life without it, I feel like I am almost obligated to appreciate media as I wouldn’t be able to live without it. 

Although I don’t particularly like being dependent on media it definitely has its positives, I can’t deny I have learned a lot through it, a large portion of my knowledge is based on things I’ve seen online whilst scrolling through different platforms and websites. Media is also a great source of entertainment, having access to movies with just one click is something no one would’ve imagined even just 40 years ago and it’s a cheaper and more convenient option compared to buying CDs or going to the cinema. 

In closing, I love my media because it has helped me grow into the person I am right now and I wouldn’t want to change that.
