Tired of, but still Addicted to Media

To be Frank, I’ve got a very ambiguous attitude towards media.

I must admit that I am sometimes so absorbed in the unreal Internet media world that only to realize I haven’t do anything for a couple of hours but watching all the meaningless video, at least they bring nothing to me, not even happiness because I always feel a sense of loss and guilty for wasting my time, on social medias. I have been always trying to change this situation since I realized it, and now I am much better at controlling myself. However, I still find myself addicted to social medias from time to time, especially when I am running out of my time for a deadline. Even when I know there is a deadline due a few hours later, I still find it hard to stop and quit from the media world. It’s just so toxic, and I’m just tired of been so addicted to it.

I cannot deny that I also love media. I’m an unknown writer and still passionate about writing. Online media gives me an opportunity to get my stories read, a chance to be known. Social medias offer a brilliant opportunity for every “nobody” to become “somebody”.

I’m still learning and practicing to balance myself over the use of social media, also to become somebody via media.

Hope one day, my stories will be told.
