Entertainment and Media Breaking Down Love and Relationships

Media will argue when writers or protestors stand up and state what harm entertainment and media causes in love and relationships. While the source can argue the evidence and patterns trailing behind us proves them liars.

Entertainment today enforces sexuality and violence while breaking down the rules of honesty, trust, faithfulness, loyalty, self-control, et cetera. Couples today sit in front of television for hours, or listen to all types of music for hours instead of joining in family activities. Children today consume their time playing video games, listening to harmful music, and engaging in viewing of harmful television programs. While the media says we all have our own choices, it is difficult to make good choices when you turn on the television and nudity, violence, profanity, and other inhumane activities are going on, on every station turned.

Nowadays, television is beyond open. Many people will use the term open mind to get their way. Open-minded people will not engage in harmful viewing, behaviors, actions, sound, et cetera, rather this types of minds will utilize the tools that prevent them harm. When couples spend hours watching harmful movies, listening to painful sounds, or else engaging in hours of video play they are not taking the time to live, learn and love.

Entertainment enforces behavior. If the entertainment is good then good results will come of the activity, or engaging. On the other hand, if entertainment is bad then harm will result. It may not appear obvious at the onset, but over the course of the relationship, the traces of harm will creep in and out of the cracks.

Examples of harm caused by inappropriate entertainment, which lead to the breakdown in relationships is visual in the following illustration: *A young mother joined in a relationship after giving birth to another child. The woman’s standards and belief was firm, while the husband’s degree of humane stooped to the level of today’s way of thinking. The mother traditional and submissive to the husband worked effortless to make the family arrangement work, while the children and husband joined in inhume viewing and behaviors of entertainments. Overtime the children became aggressive and acting out of violence each time rules were set in the household. The father inconsiderate and lacking the ability to love rarely helped the mother with discipline and control of the children’s behaviors, rather he enforced the wrongful conduct. Over time the woman after dishing out years of long-suffering, love, hope, et cetera fell into the charts of divorce when the husband committed adultery. The husband sold drugs, administered drugs, and solicited prostitution while encouraging the children to do the same. The children later appeared in court for criminal persecution, as well the husband landed in court facing charges against him. The family fell apart by divorce, lack of communication, inactive family participation, and harmful entertainment. While each family member came from broken homes, the mother had the wisdom (if only the others would listen) to make a productive relationship, while demonstrating true love.

As you can see, what you feed the mind comes out over time. The mind controls the body, including wellness, productivity, performance, et cetera. When the mind is fed garbage, it will gradually show in behaviors, case studies, patterns, habits, et cetera.
