Why I Won’t Be Reading Your Work Again

I don’t want to hear about it again. I hate how it sounds. I hate how it makes me feel.

I’m sure you’re still going to keep them coming because you get your kicks from offering others what you can’t spend a quid on and earning money and attention therefrom. That makes you the only winner in this game you play with many.

I won’t ask you to stop doing what you enjoy doing. But like you made your choice to only serve what you can’t consume, I’ve equally made mine. I have chosen to see what I want to see. Read what I want to read and listen to only what I want to listen to.

The last time you shared your last content with me, I paused and pondered on what you’d been sharing with me all this while. I mulled over them and considered their impacts on my well-being. I then realize that you’ve been poisoning my mind with virulent content that only benefits you. And I can’t believe I spent money and time at some point on your work. That was no doubt one of the worst mistakes I made this year and I’m certain it won’t happen again.

You can continue to refine your seemingly germane, but virulent pieces and send them to those that you still enjoy their attention and patronage. To those that believe they gain a better understanding of life and feel better from consuming your work. Send it to those that are yet to cotton on to the long-term effect of your work. Fortunately for me, they’re not for me anymore.

Times have changed. My desires and priorities have likewise changed. I’ll continue to regularly review my choices. Doing that will allow me to know the contents that are adding value to my life and the ones that are mendaciously designed to twist my mind and steal from me.

Don’t get me wrong. I don’t hate you, and I won’t always say no to your work but the ones you consistently produce at the moment aren’t meant for me. I’ll come around to have a look and maybe choose the ones to consume when you find reasons to start creating content that endeared me to you in the first place.

Till then.
