Society: Our society is a group of individuals involved in persistent social interaction, or a large social group sharing the simuliar geographical or social territory, typically subject to the some of the same political authority and dominant cultural expectations. We have become a society of cruelty and senseless killings, and ungodly acts of evil.
Senseless cruelty is the act of committing cruel, mean spirited, or unkind jesters toward our fellow man, without any thought of empathy. Cruelty is the indifference of suffering or pleasure in inflicting suffering. Sadism can also be related to this form of action or concept. Our society has ways of inflicting suffering that often times involve violence, such as school shootings; but affirmative violence is not necessary for an act to be cruel.
Negativity is a tendency to be downbeat, disagreeable, or skeptical. It’s a pessimistic attitude that always expects the worst. Negativity can be an attitude that always expects such negative things to happen. Negativity should have no place in your heart, dismiss it immediately if others approach you with it.
Random Acts Of Kindness can be holding open a door, offer assistance, help someone trying to get a stroller down the steps or take any random act that shows your fellow brothern you are concerned. Every small interaction with someone is an opportunity to have a positive impact on both of your lives.
If kindness is in your heart, you’ll find opportunities to perform random acts of kindness without even giving it much thought. These acts of kindness will almost always make others smile or feel good about themselves.
Social Media can be a really good source if it were not for the evil that came along with it. One of the biggest pros of social media is that it nurtures and expands relationships. Improving communication and strengthening human connection is the reason social media emerged.
Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Snapchat, chat groups, LinkedIn, and countless other social networking sites help people build on existing relationships, make new friends, and reinvigorate relationships that have lapsed over time. Regardless of where a person lives, it’s possible to find others who share the same interests and concerns.
Social media: Has exponentially increased the resources for mental health information and support. Research shows that people who get support from peers (those struggling with the same problems) have better health outcomes, whether they have a physical condition like diabetes or a psychological one like depression.
Internet support groups, discussion boards, blogs, and other social media platforms have significantly enhanced the resources for individuals wrestling with mental health, behavioral, and/or addiction issues. Online support offers certain advantages that make it attractive to individuals who might not otherwise seek help,
The very same attributes that make social media a positive force in our lives make it potentially dangerous. For example, anonymity allows for cyberbullying. This is especially problematic for teens, as bullies can target and prey on vulnerable high school peers without taking personal responsibility. Stalking can also be an issue, as social media users sometimes post their whereabouts, and their habits can be easily monitored.
Just as it can bring people together for constructive reasons, social media can connect dissatisfied, disgruntled, and misguided people together, further fueling negative attitudes and beliefs, or even making things like coordinated terrorist attacks more possible.
Teens and young adults are considered particularly at risk to negative effects. They’re a generation raised on the internet, social media, and digital technology so these things are integral, indispensable parts of their lives. Young people also are impressionable, eager for acceptance, and relatively inexperienced, which can cloud judgment.
Most adults today remember what life was like before the internet, social media, and mobile devices so it’s easier to step away from them. But it has still proved problematic, especially for adults who are prone to addictive behavior or have pre-existing mental health issues.
Decency or the lack thereof: The personal quality of decency is one of honesty, good manners, and respect for other people. When a criminal or dictator does horrible things, people assume they have no sense of decency. When a tasteless or violent TV show becomes popular, some people wonder if society has lost its sense of decency.
God’s Way: For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. 9) “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9
Encourage Yourself: Ultimately, whether social media is “good” or “bad”/“healthy” or “unhealthy” for a person’s mental health and well-being is directly related to how they are used (or abused), by whom, and to some degree by who is passing judgment.
Key to enjoying the benefits while avoiding the problems is to use these powerful tools sensibly, constructively, and in moderation. Like food, which we truly can’t live without, the right choices in the right amounts keep people healthy and satisfied, while poor choices and excess consumption can lead to significant, potentially life-threatening health conditions.
We live in a society of cruelty and senseless killings. Where people could care less, in order for this to be a better world. We must do our part, each and every one of us, if we care anything about our world, or have any decency in us. God is looking to us to make a difference.
