Alexander spent so much of his free time browsing around online on every social media platform out there. Dozens of accounts, hundreds of comments and posts about his mind, and thousands of hours wasted for doing nothing in particular in his real life.
However, all of that time spent online helped him create new everlasting friendships and relationships with people he may never see in person. New memories were made, interesting conversations had, and an endless supply of new things to be on the lookout for.
But with all of that time spent, certain things came back to haunt him. Things that he had hoped to never see again.
Alexander would often find himself going blind from the stream of tears flowing from his eyes. For hours he would find something that made him laugh, converse with others, or discover something new that he wanted to try. And within a matter of seconds something from his past would come and breakdown his happiness.
He mumbled under his breath the rejection for using social media; it was a curse brought upon him. No matter how much time he wanted to forget, social media made sure he would remember the good and bad.
Unfortunately, that was the duality of social media.
