People wishing us a speedy recovery of services and our home. Our new home.
Social media these days comes in for a lot of criticisms. But. It can be brilliant. It is a medium in which we can share. We share our thoughts, our feelings, our photographs of our nearest and dearest. We are allowed to share. It is the reason most of us signed up to these sites in the first place. To share. We have a way of reaching out and being reached.
But I do sometimes also find that the over share gets to me. At no time before have we been so acutely aware of what our friends are doing, saying or liking. And most of the time it isn't anything to do with your story together. This is when you have to use your filters. Your self selecting filters of what you read and what you don't.
Yesterday the kindness of strangers was magic to me. Because of social media I had a way of sharing a horrible event and a way of being supported. Even by strangers.
