Good 👏🏽 Grief...

Why is it that EVERY time I think about going back to my YouTube channel or starting a new one, I get totally flustered and bummed? 🤔  Like I really want to do it again, but my soul says no you don’t. 😩

I love watching YouTube as a medium, but I can’t help but thinking it’s a depressing place for the creator. 🤐 I’ve been a creator.  I know what it’s like to want subs.  For people to like your videos….ah yes the light bulb moment 💡 -  it’s validation. UGH!  And the INTJ in me doesn’t like to seek validation. 🤔

Begging people to like, comment, share and subscribe.  That’s what I feel like it is BEGGING.  And I don’t like begging. 🤲🏽

’m also kicking myself in the ass because I’ve been on YouTube since 2006 and I could have had a booming channel if I stuck with it, I was a YTP.  I had the opportunities and I flushed it. 😂

My bad, my INTJism wouldn’t allow for me to feel that yucky.  Plus, my INTJism keeps me a private person, so I’m not about to spill my guts and emotions to the general public just because.  Really not one of those people.  There is nothing wrong with it, it’s just not me. 💯

Social Media Toxicity

With all the drama that happened within the beauty community, I have to question if I want to go back to my YouTube channel or start the new I was thinking about.  🤔

Social media is toxic.  There are so many interactions.  Social media has allowed for one person to expand their interactions ten fold.  Whereas before, when I was growing up in a PRE SOCIAL MEDIA (🦕)  world, my interactions only went as far as the activity.  Meaning…I met people in school, church, from my family, or work.  That’s how far my extensions went.  Now, social media allows people to have a reach far beyond.  And this is hard for a person like me - an INTJ. 🥺

Hurt people, hurt people. 😒 And there are a lot of HURT people on the internet.  They speak willy-nilly at people with no regard there is another human being on the other side of that computer screen. 👀 Typing thugs.  Computer crazies.  People who just type and send before they think.  And I will admit some of the comments are funny af, others are sad and disgusting. 

Everyone has an opinion, the thing is, is before we weren’t getting everyone’s opinion.  Now we get the benefit of everyone chiming in on everything. 🤦🏽‍♀️  Perhaps why I’m selective in what I watch and listen to.

🗣 Has our society become more toxic because of social media?  Chime in. 🛎 What are your thoughts? 

Are you like me where years ago I began to shun social media and limited my social media accounts?  I saw how dark having so much social interaction could be.  Or are you okay with where you’re at in the social media realm?
