We all have that guilty pleasure we like to occasionally indulge in!! Although I don’t like to admit it, I occasionally watch reality tv shows. Periodically I have the tv on just cause….I don’t really even have to be all into it. Other times it’s just background noise and if I hear something interesting I’ll shift my attention.
These shows often give me a good laugh! In the grand scheme of the reality tv phenomenon the people are actors and some are good. Some even deserve awards for that nonsense they pull off. Most of these shows have all these tripped out story lines and with no real point to any of them. It’s a little different for a movie, at least with movies there is usually a plot. These reality shows are just a bunch of jumbled up story lines thrown together.
I asked myself am I benefiting from watching this in anyway? Is it teaching me anything I don’t know? Granted some reality tv shows may like those therapy shows. However, I am talking about the ratchet shows where someone is messing with someone else’s man, drinks are thrown, tight dresses, etc. But these people are supposed to be of some high class and wealth. I believe reality tv is a huge contributor to why the youth is so brain washed.
I believe a disconnect is due from time to time. Right now I am focused on getting myself in a better place in life. I feel like putting the type of energy those shows give off is not beneficial for me right now and maybe never. I have even slowed down looking on IG as often. I don’t post everyday or anything….but I’m on there almost everyday. Sometimes too long…..getting lost page after page. I see one thing I like I click, then another click, click,click. The next thing I know I am 10 degrees of separation from where I started in the first place.
For right now I will not be watching any super ratchet reality tv or the vlogs I watch faithfully after the shows. I’ll definitely miss my vloggers and their awesome personalities while I am doing this little detox. I’ll still check out more relevant vlogs, but not ones that are specifically discussing reality garbage. I’ve actually been doing well….it’s been about a week and a half……I haven’t really thought about what’s going on much either. So I’m going to continue on this reality tv sabbatical and hope to be more clear minded after.
