Of late I have been seeing some clients, both adolescents and adults, who suffer from the effects of information and images on social media. My tutoring work and involvement with schools has also highlighted the issues of the increase in young people suffering with mental health.
I feel that social media, the information and images coming from it is probably having some adverse effects on some individuals. I realise that some of my clients are presenting with real struggles between who social media portrays what and who they should be and what they feel inside that they really are.
Drama of Life
Every passing moment is like a passing act in a play. Each of us are the actors playing out parts very well.
An actor is never focused on another actors part, continually criticizing it. He just gets on with his own part, playing it as best he can.
This Drama of Life is eternal, predestined and accurate. Whatever anybody else says and does is their role, not mine. My task is to play my part right. Right thoughts restore rightness to the whole play.
Practice detaching yourself from your role and experiencing the truth, behind the role and you will find yourself loving every instant of your role and the Drama, too.
