Who is Mr. Media?

My media is a human. He has qualities and incompetences, good days and bad days, mistakes and successes. This person evolves, he grows, as I do, as we do.

I entertain a relationship with this person, an irregular, emotional, fulfilling, sometimes toxic relationship.

But who is Mister media? 

Mr. Media is my adviser, he supports or critics my ideas or my projects, he gives me the tools to realize myself.

Mr. Media is my friend, he makes me laugh, spend fun time, entertain me.

Mr. Media is my psychologist, he gives advices, can heal me and protects me.

Mr. Media is my teacher, he shares the bank of knowledge he accumulates and I can also partly learn it.

Mr. Media is my co-worker, he works for me but at the same time I work for him, we are a team.

Mr. Media is my lover, he is always close to me or in me, we are in constant intimacy.

Mr. media is also a lair, he sometimes hides information or misinform me or can even completely change facts.

Mr. Media is a thief, he steals my information that I didn’t want to share with him. 

Mr. Media is a stalker, always looking where and when I go, knowing exactly what I like and what I don’t.

Mr. Media is an abuser, possessive, asking for attention on a regular basis.

Mr. Media is a kidnapper, he controls me, my views and my behavior, he puts me in a frame which is a prison.
