Before there was MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, or whatever else...

What did you do? As far as having an outlet, or someone to talk to?

There's nothing wrong with social media sites, I think they're a great way to allow people into your lives who are maybe far away (friends, and loved ones), they're even a great way to reconnect with people from our past. But why do people post so many personal things on these sites? There's so much drama! People are "fighting" with each other, couples are airing their dirty laundry for the world to see, and don't even get me started on the pictures LMBO! 

What happened to the good old days when we would just confront someone we had an issue with, instead of posting "You're such a b*tch...you know who you are?" What happened to telling our signficant other "I hate you right now?" instead of posting it online? Is nothing private anymore?

Seriously...what did you do before all of this came along? Do you guys even remember a world without Facebook? LOL!

Quoting VirgoMom07:

It's hard to find the time. :-/

But really, I don't feel very inspired much anymore. Hard to write about being happy. Much easier to describe being miserable.

I used to write a lot. It would either be about what I had been up to or how I was feeling or I would write poems. I have a lot of poems that I've written.

I had my boyfriend (now my husband). He helped me get through a lot. My sister and I also had each other.
