I mean, don’t we all have drama in our lives these days? What makes theirs so much more entertaining than ours? Is it simply because of who they are? The social circles they hang in? Or is it simply the lifestyle they live? 🤷🏾♀️ I just think that it’s amazing how in depth we get with the line up of these shows…..but don’t invest 10 minutes into our own realities.
We will readjust our whole lives to watch these reality tv shows, but won’t spend 20 minutes reading something of quality or informative to stimulate our minds. Just think how much different many of our mindsets would be if for every hour that we spend watching reality tv, we picked up a book or newspaper and was abreast as to what was going on in the world. Or to self teach ourselves how to do something other than gossip…..hell or to just think and reflect.
Reality tv has so many people’s (young Black women) minds messed up about truths of reality! I’m used to the saying, “what happens in this house, stays in this house!” We’re being taught that it’s okay to be an asshole if you’ve got a little bit of money, and that it’s okay to be a little bit messy to keep the tea flowing….or that a phat ass, or no ass if you’re in Orange County, will be your meal ticket to financial stability!
Moral of my post today is: read a book, watch a documentary, hell just stimulate your mind with something other than reality tv. #thiscantbelife
