I’ve been thinking about my time on Twitter recently. As much as I should not be comparing myself to other people on Twitter, I can’t help but do so, and I find that I am certainly not living up the standards of others. I watch other people on Twitter, and see the way that other couples interact with each other, not only on Twitter, but also in their private lives, and I feel that I cannot and do not live up to those standards with Minxy.
I think that it comes from the fact that Minxy is a shift worker and as a result our lives do not cross as often as the others that I see on Twitter and compare myself to. I know that I should stop doing the comparison, but it is human nature to compare ourselves with others, and it is not that simple to stop doing it. It has become so ingrained in my brain.
So I guess there are a couple of things I can do:
- stop following those people who I compare myself to;
- reduce the amount of time I spend on Twitter as a whole;
- reconsider being on Twitter altogether.
So it is time for me to work out what I should be doing in regards to my presence on Twitter. I have contemplated my Twitter presence in the past here on the blog, and I end up following the status quo and not changing my stance even though it would probably be for the better if I were to try something different from what ends up dragging me into a downward spiral.
Let us see if I change my ways this time.
