I for one try to avoid the news and negativity like the plague. However, when you are on social media, you read things that are in your feed and you don’t have a choice. The news is out of my circle of control and if I’m being perfectly honest, so are most of the other things I read.
There’s a good and a bad that comes along with social media. There are lots of encouraging and kind people around. On the contrary, there are a lot of negative nelly’s as well. Have you ever seen someone actually say, “why are you putting your business on Facebook?” I’ve seen it plenty of times and today I’m going to address it.
First of all, lets get a few things straight. If you have a social media account, then it’s yours. That means you can do whatever you want with it. If you want to post inspirational sayings, go for it. If you want to write about your break up, have at it. If you need to vent about something that has happened, then do it. If you want to brag about your kid, or your job, or your life, then that’s ok!
You see somewhere along the lines of all this social networking, some people have taken it upon themselves to become the social police. For some ungodly reason, they think their shit don’t stink. They think it’s their job to judge you. They think that they get to decide what you should say and how you should feel. I mean, come on, I just read yesterday that people were outraged by Victoria Beckham kissing her daughter on the lips. Seriously people, what the hell is wrong with that? I’ve kissed my kids on the lips a hundred times.
If I’m reading that in my feed, then you guys are kind of jacked up. She’s a mother and she loves her kids. What are you even implying? (No I didn’t click on the link to read it, because that’s more bullshit) I’m guessing you wrote a book about how and where to kiss your kids. I’m guessing that you had no one else to pick on that day, so you Zeroed in on Victoria.
Well, here’s an idea. Each person has the right to share whatever they so choose. There is no right or wrong, that’s why it’s YOURS! Have you seen the Facebook movie? It’s your club and you get to invite whoever you want into it. You get to decide who stays and who goes. You have the right to share your feelings, and thoughts with the world. How about we stop judging everyone’s posts, how about we try to encourage others.
Why don’t we realize that everyone is different and that’s ok! I try not to give my power away to others. I really don’t care at all what your opinion of me is, unless I love you and consider you a friend. But I know many people who feel hurt by what you say to them. So I wrote this with the hopes that they can see not everyone is a judemental ass! Some people accept you and your feelings just the way you are. I hope you can learn to put up some boundaries and get rid of the negativity that you don’t deserve. I hope that you know that you are free to use the Internet however you so choose. You keep on posting whatever your little heart desires.
Stop with all the negative drama! Go out and spread some love. Be kind to someone today, it might be the only positive interaction they receive all week. Be the light that shines the way. Be the change that you want to see, and make sure today you kiss your kids right on their lips!
