Doesn’t it annoy you sometimes to see everyone’s crap out there?
But then the weird thing is that you kinda get pulled into it. Even when you don’t want to.
But what happens when you’re the one feeding the social media cravings?
You’re posting and then over post.
When is it time to hold back and does anyone really care what the heck you’re doing today?
Why are we so drawn to checking up on other people’s lives? I often wonder this.
I hate social media sometimes. I have to be careful I don’t fall into the comparison game that seems to capture quite a bunch of people.
Should I share or not?
Sometimes I want to share because I want the hearts and likes but then I feel rejected or not as amazing if I get a few likes.
Yuck that’s awful! Right?
Then I feel like withdrawing, not sharing anything about my life and never let anyone know what I’m doing.
but you know what? There’s such a sense of freedom when i think of just disappearing from social media.
I actually stopped following a lot of the travel people on Instagram because it wasn’t giving me the right kind of “feels” anymore. And don’t get me wrong it is amazing to travel – we’ve been full time traveling for two years now.
It’s just that it doesn’t benefit me to see where in the world they are and what they’re doing.
And what are they doing it for? Social media?
I remember reading a blog post where a question was posed “If there was no social media would people even travel so much or go on those humanitarian trips to help the needy?)
Wow – that is something for all of us to think on; I actually have.
Since before Christmas I stopped posting so much about my time in Mexico and made the choice to not extend our time just to stay at the beach for a month.
Because I asked myself that question and answered truthfully. Is it so my friends on Facebook or instagram think I live a cool life?
What relief I felt when I chose to not go and to actually live life outside of posting on social media.
Yea that question was very provoking. I took it to heart and tossed it around and realized that a lot of what I’ve been doing is to “show off” a bit.
I want people to see that I am doing something amazing but I’m sure most of them don’t even care.
All in all it feels good to disappear from social media for a while.
