I’ve thought about writing this every time a post on pornography shows up on social media. Not because they make me feel inspired, but because I always feel there is something missing.
Yeah, I said it. I believe there’s something wrong with the Honor Code at BYU.
Not necessarily with the specific standards of right and wrong, but rather in the motivation behind these standards.
The simple act of creating a list of actions and consequences is pointless if it doesn’t serve a greater purpose.
It’s only been 3 weeks since my wife and I got married, but it’s been quite the 3 weeks. See, we didn’t do the whole “live together” thing while we were dating. So yeah…we’re learning about each other.
With social media as it is, we’re constantly surrounded with the “best” of others.
The best angle.
The best outfit.
The best news.
The best attitude.
While the mainstream media might often show us the worst of others, what we pick and choose to show about ourselves through social media is often the best we have to offer.
And I can relate. I understand the desire to show ourselves the way we want to be seen, and to leave out the other – not so pretty – details.
