December and Me..

I find this month, more than most, that I begin to reflect. Not only on my life, but that of the world as a whole. From our very existence, to the individual, personal touches such as acts of kindness that we actively take/see each day.

The problem is, is that I have become quite the sinic lately. With the advent of social media and technology, it has never been easier for people to portray a false view of themselves to satisfy their own need of self-importance. This falseness often sending the wrong message to others who may then feel the burden to live up to such awe-inspiring idealisms.

Perhaps this is over-thinking. Something I know I do quite often, which brings me to my next thought, social anxiety. 

December of course brings this in the bucket-load. From the awkward encounters with family members you haven’t seen in quite some time, to the general overwhelming feeling of social pressure. You must per-severe however!

I love Christmas. I think it is a fabulous time of the year which really serves to bring out the best in people, for the most-part. I feel it’s purpose has been fogged however by the very things it is against.

Christmas is about so much more than a social media update, or how much you got from under the tree. It is about being with those closest to you, without the desire to post about it. It is about having those real connections and getting to know each-other, aside from tapping away on a phone.

Rant over. I hope you all have a fabulous Christmas from me, a grumpy sod from time to time.
