THE DIRTY ARMY: Hey Nik, so in my search to find a picture to accompany this post, I found what I *think* is MapQuest lol! Anyways, I’m a huge fan, and I have something I would like to get off my chest. I hate reading LONG ass posts, so I’m going to try and make this as short and sweet as I can:
So I get that without social networking, you wouldn’t have found success via The Dirty (sorry, but it’s true. No hard feelings). What I find sad is that women (and some men) are taking to Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter to beg for attention. I would know, because I used to be one of them. It is natural as a woman to be insecure, but social networking is taking it to a whole new level. I thank GOD I deleted all of my online profiles, because it truly changed my life.
I am college educated and have a good corporate job, but boy was it hard to get all of those scandalous pictures of myself off of the internet. Those things can come back to haunt you and prevent you from finding real success in life. Don’t get me wrong, I never was an escort, did drugs, or got arrested, however, I was a party girl that participated in “modeling”, like half of the girls on social networking sites do (ugh I know, I’m embarrassed by myself for doing that). People nowadays LIVE for the attention they get from random old men by posting half naked pictures, and thrive off of trying to make all of these other women jealous by posting pics of their vacations and Loubitons (ya, we all know you’re only buying them because they have a red bottom. SO original). But again, I was one of those girls.
I was able to find happiness and inner confidence without having to rely on the thousands of random followers I had. Because in the end, does it really matter how many followers you have on Instagram, or how many old men beat off to your pictures? All of these pictures are going to come back to haunt you when you’re finally ready to grow up, get a REAL job, and find a husband. No real man wants a woman who has shown her goods off to the world. Women (including my former self) try to “show off” because they feel that they need to prove their worth to others. In reality, it just makes you look desperate and pathetic. I am a very beautiful, intelligent, and genuine woman, and I can say that with conviction, but I am embarrassed that I sold myself short by flaunting my body, face, and material goods to all of the internet. I’m really glad I pulled myself out of that before I ended up on this site, and I advise that others do the same. P.S. I truly do believe that you’re helping others through this site. Eff the haters, you’re the internet’s “voice of reason”.
Yup, that is MapQuest. If I was a civilian and didn’t need social networks for business purposes I would not have an IG, Twitter or Facebook. Being off the grid gives you all the power in life.- nik
