The Devon blog is back with a vengeance.
It’s been nine months since my last post, and there are no excuses for me not posting anything since the last time.
The most important thing to know is that I am back. I’m ready to tell my story, share my opinion, and ponder on the world’s biggest questions.
As a journalist, my job is to share other people’s stories and to leave myself behind at the order. The truth doesn’t require Devon’s perspective.
So, Devon Martinez writes is the only place where I will tell my story.
I know it’s narcissistic to think that I am deserving to have my story told, but I am human and I have a story; it’s not the lame story that’s shared on Facebook and Instagram, where life is perfect.
Every person faces a struggle, but we only share what’s great about our experiences like the snapshot of the beautiful wedding we were at. We allow almost no one to see what’s behind the scenes because we are afraid of being human.
90 percent of the time my goal is to tell other peoples stories besides my own, but as I progress as a writer I think it’s fair to myself to share mine.
The reason why the internet has failed us is that we have created this assumption based on our own ego, that people are supposed to be as great as God himself. On the internet, a spelling mistake is not acceptable. On the internet, delivering a bad comment turns you into a bad person. There is no room for forgiveness, and some people are appalled to hear that someone has the audacity to have a different opinion.
The first step in changing internet culture from the current garbage fire filled with hate is to become humble. Let’s stop judging other people for their faults until we become perfect.
Share who you really are, and don’t be afraid to ask for help, and be ready to change your mind when new information is available.
The point is I hope my blog is a step in the right direction to create a forgiving society, so we can explore what makes every person human. We understand what it means to be human when we follow a fictional story. Spider man is popular because he reminds us of ourselves. He’s an ordinary person placed into an extraordinary position.
We fail to grasp this concept when it’s real life. We make fun of people who fail and aren’t forgiving when someone makes a mistake.
The Devon Blog is back with a vengeance. So be prepared to read, introspective stories, political/cultural opinions, comedy, and theories about the universe.
I hope you follow this blog and enjoy what I write.
