Alright, let’s get real.
Let’s get to it. Many people are starting to share in a constructive way on social media these days. It’s less about it being a journal and more about turning messes into messages. That folks, I am here for! I believe vulnerability takes courage and strength. To flip your hurt and pain to help someone else is amazing. It helps us (the people sharing openly) and the people reading it. Win, win!
This world needs truth!
We live in a world where we think we need to put mask on and cover up who we are just to go outside with everyone else… and their mask on too. Seriously, what is the point? This world needs truth!
So again, I am here for sharing openly on social media when it’s constructive. If you aren’t, then so be it. Let us who are live freely while you live freely for the things you love. Aight?
Now that that’s out of the way I want to let you know something. Two things to be exact.
These can go both ways: for those watching and for those posting.
- Just because you see people sharing a lot doesn’t mean you know their whole life.
- It’s important to set boundaries, just like anything else in life. Set boundaries between helping others but keep some things to yourself. The world doesn’t need to know every single detail. If you share everything without keeping anything to yourself, over time you feel lost and confused. Have something sacred for just you.
- Make sure you show up for yourself first.
- Don’t get so consumed in another’s life you forget to live your own. Maybe you want to change the world or you found someone you love keeping up with. Either way, make sure you have time for you first. If there aren’t any boundaries set crossing over the line to comparison and doing things just for the sake of others can easily be crossed.
Social media is here and it’s not going anywhere. I commend those who are being a positive light across the many platforms there are but while doing so we must not forget to live.
