Shaping a Genesis week from the chaos of my life

The things that never go away

A few weeks ago I was directed to an article by Luke Harms over at A Deeper Story that began like this:

I was young, a bad mix of stupid and cocky. Social Media was a fairly new phenomenon, and I had no idea the…permanence.

I said something brash. I did something stupid. Someone got a picture of me doing something stupid, and recorded me saying something brash. The next thing I knew, people were liking and sharing the stupid thing I’d done, and saying horrible things about me for the horrible things I’d said.

The experience was unpleasant, to say the least.

A few years later, I’d largely forgotten about the experience when I was bored at work one Friday and googled myself. There it was, in full technicolor, years later.

Like it had happened the day or the week before.

I encourage you to go read the rest of the story.  There’s much to be challenged with here.

Have you ever had an experience like this?

Let's talk. What can you add to this discussion?
