The Internet Is Dangerously Addictive

There’s rarely anything that I’ve ever been addicted to but it seems like the Internet has changed that.

Yes, I love it. My work as a writer dictates that I am to be online as much as possible.

For the most part, it’s been a huge help in my life. I’ve earned a living online and I’ve learnt many things.

Lately, however, the amount of hate and distateful comments plaguing sites has been messing with my head.

Last night I was on YouTube and stumbled across a video on Islam, the comment section was absolutely appalling. The amount of hate and hurtful sentiments against Muslims and Islam took me aback.

Maybe my parents kept me sheltered from all this as a child or maybe things weren’t this way prior to 9/11 but there’s a stigma now attached to Muslims all around the world for the actions of Islamic terrorists.

It bothered me. I wanted to truly believe that we live in a world where we all can bond and be kind to each other even in all our differences. A huge part of me believes that’s true.

I hate to talk about this on my blog but it’s been on my mind all day and it has hindered my writing and Editing for the last hour.

On the plus side, I published that book I told you guys about, The Big Epiphany, and it’s going to be free from tomorrow. It’s a really meaningful book that explores the inner workings of our personalities as well as my story of triumph over Psoriatic Arthritis.

Talk  you tomorrow.
