We live in the age of social media. Devouring (and more often than not parroting) an avalanche of information, both good and bad. We have an opinion on everything. We consume reality programming and situational content with more ease than we usually drink water. And we seem to believe anything that pops up on our screens, without ever questioning the credibility of the source, the logic behind what is dished out to us. We have become mindless drones.
Please bear with me. I won’t get (too) philosophical. I promise there is a real world equivalency here. Something that, I hope, will help you, and perhaps others, see things my way.
